Writing that Shapes the World:
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
1st Global Conference
Call for Participation 2017
Tuesday 4th April – Thursday 6th April 2017
Writing has been part of human history for 5,000 years, give or take a few hundred. It developed independently in more than one part of the globe which speaks to its fundamental quality as a truly human capability. And it has shaped cultures, thought processes, knowledge, and how all of these get transmitted from one person, one generation, one era to the next. Writing in a very real sense is reflexive of, and instrumental in the continuance of culture.
