In the past few years, the English Department of Ferdowsi University of Mashhad (FUM) has hosted two seminal academic events in the fields of language and interdisciplinary studies. In October 2012, English Department organized the First Conference on Language Teaching & Learning: An Interdisciplinary Approach (LLT-IA). In 2015, the Second Conference on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Language Teaching, Literature and Translation Studies (LTLTS2-IA) broadened the scope of attention to address literary and translation studies as well. Fortunately, both conferences were warmly received by students and scholars from all over the country.
Interest in interdisciplinary studies has been turned into one of the top priorities in FUM. It has also been the focus of many of the scholarly discussions here at the Faculty of Letters and Humanities as well. The main objective has been to cross the conventional boundaries of existing academic disciplines to open up new horizons in interdisciplinary research.
The English Department is now honored to inform you that the Third Conference on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Language Teaching, Literature and Translation Studies (LTLTS3-IA) is to be held on October 24-25, 2017. It is hoped that the prospective conference will create a congenial atmosphere for university professors, researchers and students to share their findings and to promote a common understanding in language-related fields.
We are looking forward to seeing you here at Ferdowsi University.
