Meeting Description:

Cross-cultural use of language in multimodal forms is a dynamic phenomenon which involves diverse challenges of paramount significance. As traditionally-envisioned scholarly boundaries do not seem to fully serve the changing needs of the past and newly-emerging requirements, the principal aim of this conference is to promote interdisciplinary research activities and collaborations by encouraging prospective participants to move beyond discipline-specific approaches and take advantage of methodological and conceptual frameworks which can help facilitate addressing common problems.

Call for Papers:

Senior and junior scholars in languages, literature, education, area studies, history, psychology, sociology, translation, intercultural communication, information technology, and other relevant fields in human and social sciences are cordially invited to contribute and participate in this academic event. The conference welcomes research reports on all languages, but abstracts and presentations can be in English or Persian.

LTLTS2-IA welcomes contributions which are inspired by interdisciplinarity and has employed approaches of two or more disciplines and has modified them so that they are best suited to a certain language problem. However, abstracts of research reports which address a problem across one or several of the following thematic areas in relation to language teaching, literature, or translation studies, as the major realms of language use, are prioritized:

Entrepreneurship and Employment
Hybridity and Migration
Localization and Globalization
Culture and Society
Gender and Identity
Media and Narration
Religion and Sacred Texts
Ideology and Power
Agency and Capital
Memory and Cognition
Criticism and Stylistics
Meaning and Semiotics
Children and Intergeneration
Information Technology

We invite proposals for presentation in English or Persian. An abstract can be submitted in 200 to a maximum of 250 words with no citations or references in English or Persian.

Please, send your proposals both as MS Word (.doc) document including author, affiliation and contact information and as PDF document without any personal information. Abstracts as email attachments should be sent to both and by the deadline.
