Language is at a nexus of interrelationships between individuals, society and culture. The interface between language and literature has been the object of considerable interdisciplinary research on methods of analysis that can be applied across the two fields and their sub-areas. Less research has focused, however, on the influence of the new technologies on this interface, which transcends borders and cultures, with the process of translation adding yet another dimension to the already complex picture.
The 4th Annual International Conference on Language, Literature and Linguistics (L3) 2015 will examine the various issues and factors that intervene at the interface of language and literature, not least the cultural context(s) in which it is situated.
The conference will bring together multi-disciplinary expertise from all relevant fields. We invite submissions for an abstract of a research-based paper in any of the relevant fields, including but not limited to:
- Second-Language Acquisition
- Public Service Interpreting and Translation
