Pamukkale University, School of Foreign Languages hosts the “World Languages and Literatures Research Symposium” to be held online from June 1 to June 3, 2022.  We are interested in receiving proposals on a wide range of topics relating to the many long-running currents of thought and new waves of thinking about several language teaching and learning contexts, including:
Eastern Languages and Literatures, Western Languages and Literatures, Slavic Languages and Literatures, Linguistics, Translation Studies, Comparative Literature, Ancient Languages and Cultures, Turkish Language and Literature, Foreign Languages and Literature.

We believe the symposium will create opportunities on forming connections among educators and researchers in Turkey and around the world. Hence, it will provide an ideal venue for presenting research in progress and practical applications of theoretical concepts. We welcome 300-500-word proposals either in Turkish or English from researchers and educators conducting research in all fields. Paper sessions are oral presentations, followed by a discussion with the audience. Papers will be organized into 20-minute sessions. Suggested presentation length is 15-20 minutes, with time for audience question and interaction. A book of abstracts will be published for the papers to be presented at the symposium.

The online symposium is free of charge.
