An International Conference on “SOCIETY, LITERATURE & MULTILINGUALISM ” to be held on 16th and 17th December 2016 in Pune, India.

Language has been the first sign of human evolution. Looking at our journey from pictorial symbols to the diverse multingual society we live in today, language forms an important anchor in this development. 

Language has marked our progress as a civilization. Today, the world is coming closerand distances are getting shorter. Globalization, cultural openness, increased interaction
and proliferation of the internet has made multilingualism the norm, to the extent that studies show that multilingual speakers outnumber monolingual speakers today.

In 2006’s Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide, Henry Jenkins defines “convergence culture” as “the flow of content across multiple media platforms, the cooperation between multiple media industries, and the migratory behavior of media audiences who will go almost anywhere in search of the kinds of entertainment experiences they want” (2). In contemporary culture, we are no longer merely passive consumers of media: we are participants in the narrative to the point where fans often actively influence outcomes and storylines well after a primary text has been released.
