Call for Papers:

Foreign language teaching seems to have gained unprecedented importance in the fast shrinking modern global village. Better ways of communication have widened the cross-cultural contacts of individuals and groups. This is why the number of foreign languages being learned in Pakistan seems to have increased. Besides, teaching modern Internet savvy learners of languages in an age of information technology means dealing with new challenges and tools in language teaching. This conference focuses not only issues related to language pedagogy but also tries to explore aspects of sociolinguistics and other branches of linguistics and what researchers of linguistics can do to address social problems related to language such language conflicts which claim many lives.

In order to discuss these and other such issues of applied linguistics, sociolinguistics and other areas of linguistics, the English department of the Islamia University of Bahawalpur is organizing the First International Conference on Linguistics and Language Teaching. The conference is scheduled to be held in November 2013. The aim of the conference is to boost research on linguistics and language teaching in Pakistan by providing a broad and multi-disciplinary platform to the national and international researchers to discuss the recent findings of their studies in linguistics and language teaching. The event will provide an exciting opportunity to build academic relationships and explore possibilities and capabilities of research collaboration on national and international levels.
