Conference Description


The conference will focus on the dynamics of culture and its representations in the fields of Language, Linguistics, Literature and Translation. It aims to emphasize cultural intersections and explore ways in which such intersections could be conceptualized, critiqued or disrupted and ultimately reconstructed. We invite contributions on the theoretical and analytical frameworks that examine cultural intersections, as well as those which explore the practical and pedagogical implications of such intersections.
