Meeting Description:

Second International Conference on English Language, Literature, Teaching and Translation Studies (CELLTTS)

Anglophone (Inter) Cultural Negotiations: Multiculturalism and Globalization in the Era of Uncertainty

The Department of English Language and Literature, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Sarajevo, is pleased to announce its 2nd International Conference on English Language, Literature, Teaching and Translation Studies (CELLTTS) which will take place on 30 September - 1 October 2016. For the second time we invite scholars and experts in their respective fields of research to Sarajevo to present and discuss their research findings and exchange experience and ideas with their colleagues from the region and the world.

In the world of multiculturalism and globalism it has become necessary to enquire whether these concepts and trends have turned into mere isms and what might the modalities be for genuine (inter) cultural dialogues, encounters and negotiations in and for the Anglophone contexts. Are globalization and interculturalism/multiculturalism near synonyms or mutually exclusive terms? What are their possible limitations or advantages when it comes to identity politics, cultural diversity and intercultural education? How genuinely multicultural are we and is the professed progress of 'going global' a wishful thinking or a realistic objective for the future? How is the globalized multicultural world to cope with the challenges of both corporatism and terrorism? Finally, how are these issues affecting the Anglo-American humanities and vice versa, that is, how can language and literary studies provide a meaningful response to the challenges of today, how can teaching and translation studies make intercultural negotiations fruitful?
