Meeting Description:

The colonial epoch motivated a culture of global crossings which involved diverse peoples, bodies of knowledge and traditions ushering in the era of gloablization. Starting from the geo-political terrian, there has since been massive contacts of languages and cultures, producing an unregimented global atmosphere of linguistic and cultural hybridity, discursivity and literarity. Contemporary thought is effectively shaped by this long tradition of global exchange. In this regard, Africa has co-evolved with other parts of the world a rich lode of linguistic, cultural and literary relationships that is worth acknowledging, interrogating and celebrating. In pursuit of the above, the School of Languages and the Language Centre of the College of Humanities, University of Ghana, invite proposals for individual papers, panels and poster sessions for the 3rd School of Languages Conference (SOLCON III), to be held from 22 - 24 October, 2019 at the University of Ghana, Legon Campus, Accra.
