Language plays an important role in the modern society and represents diverse aspirations, needs, cultures, traditions, and practices. Much the same, literature represents a language or a people, culture and/or tradition. We therefore invite: individual papers, graduate student papers and posters, undergraduate research poster presentations, roundtable discussions on selected topics along with works in progress. We hope to provide an interesting platform for researchers, academics, language practitioners, policymakers and postgraduate candidates to share knowledge,exchange ideas and establish academic relationships.
