Meeting Description:

The Department of English Language and Literature at Blaze Koneski Faculty of Philology, Ss Cyril and Methodius University - Skopje, Macedonia, is pleased to announce the upcoming international conference titled ''English Studies at the Interface of Disciplines: Research and Practice,'' to be held 11-13 March 2016 at the Department of English Language and Literature.

The second half of the twentieth and the beginning of the twenty-first century have witnessed increasing interaction between various cultures and various disciplines in scientific theoretical research, owing, primarily, to the development of the media and the internet. Such interaction has revealed and emphasized aspects that may have been overlooked without an interdisciplinary approach. Therefore, this conference aims to reaffirm and foreground the importance of co-positioning various contexts: linguistic, literary, cultural, political, ethical, ethnic, national, as well as the contexts of the scientific disciplines. Particular emphasis will be placed on examining how the findings of one discipline may shed light on traditionally neglected perspectives in another discipline.
