BACKGROUND

The Future of English in Asia: Perspectives on Language and Literature (second call)

updated: 
Friday, December 14, 2012 - 3:18am
Department of English, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

As English becomes progressively more multimodal and destandardized and as we look to a future where by 2050 Chinese "will have nearly triple the numbers of speakers that English has" (Ostler, 2003) it is important to explore how English can respond to the challenges and opportunities of this multilingual age. Whether we see English as a tool to "win friends and influence people," as a lingua franca, or as a language whose use is now more symbolic than communicative, its possibilities remain endless. Now that English looks to a new stage in its history in this globalized "Asian century" it is timely that the future of English is explored from an Asian perspective.

Representation of Religions in the Media: Multidisciplinary Approaches, 29 and 30 July 2013

updated: 
Thursday, December 13, 2012 - 12:49pm
Liverpool Hope University, UK

Religion remains a significant aspect of contemporary social, political and cultural life, and continues to be an object of media scrutiny. Religions are represented in documentaries, serial dramas, comedies, soap operas and on Reality TV. Religions are depicted in films and portrayed in the broadcast and print media, on the internet, and within multi-platform texts. This two-day symposium will explore both positive and negative representations of religions in the contemporary media from a multi- and interdisciplinary perspective. The symposium will be used to develop a network of academics whose expertise on media representations of religions will support new initiatives and open new areas of study.
