Meeting Description:

In a changing and complex world, the Arab region is witnessing unprecedented transformation on all fronts. The politics may be worrying and the economies unsettling, yet this region endured many injuries and traumas in the past and survived all forms of hardship, least of which are the climate and natural environment. However, the greatest challenge for this region is how to cope with an ever-changing world in an era of instantly accessible, synchronous communication. How can this region deal with the ever-changing discourse, the ever-changing culture, the ever-changing need for interaction with the other?

This conference explores issues of interconnectedness in a context of change in language, thought, and culture, and what they entail for the study of linguistics, literature and translation.

2nd Call for Papers:

You are invited to participate in the International Conference on Language, Literature and Translation: Power to Connect in a Changing World that will be held on 22-25 April 2014 at the Faculty of Foreign Languages, University of Jordan, Amman-Jordan. Selected refereed papers of the conference will be published in a special volume of International Journal of Arabic-English Studies(IJAES), the journal of The Association of Professors of English & Translation at Arab Universities (APETAU).
