    Call for Papers

    The Arts and Human­i­ties touch peo­ples’ lives at every level. They con­tribute to our qual­ity of life because, once our basic sub­sis­tence needs have been sat­is­fied, they encom­pass those things that make life worth liv­ing. They also con­tribute to the level of civ­i­liza­tion that makes this coun­try such an attrac­tive place in which to live and work. Arts and Human­i­ties research under­pins our expe­ri­ence when we attend a con­cert or a the­atre, visit an art exhi­bi­tion, a museum or a her­itage site, read a book, or sim­ply won­der what it means to be human.

    The Arts and Human­i­ties cover a very wide range of intel­lec­tual and practice-​based dis­ci­plines and research areas. These include his­tory, clas­sics, archae­ol­ogy, eng­lish lit­er­a­ture, phi­los­o­phy, reli­gion, law, mod­ern lan­guages, lin­guis­tics, infor­mat­ics, media stud­ies, drama, music and design. The Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Arts & Human­i­ties (ICOAH 2014) is the pre­mier forum for the pre­sen­ta­tion of new advances and research results in the fields of Arts and Humanities.
