International Conference on Language, Literature, and Culture /

As the Ganges and the Bhramaputra flow through the riverine nation of Bangladesh, so has a ceaseless influx of invaders, travellers, and traders, many of whom have remained in the world’s largest delta. Bangladesh has always been a land in flux, eternal but ever new, and this ceaseless motion of our land has inspired the theme of our international academic conference, “The River: Flows of Innovation and Exchange in the Global(i)zed English World,” to be hosted by the Department of English and Modern Languages from March 3 to 4, 2016, at North South University in Dhaka, Bangladesh.  

Our conference theme draws upon Bangladesh’s geographical status as well as its historical status as a postcolonial nation where English and Bengali, South Asian heritage and Western cultural influence, the forces of globalization and the individual – the global and the “i” – simultaneously clash and intermingle.

We would like to solicit abstracts, with a maximum of 300 words, for papers addressing any aspect of our theme of innovation and exchange. The deadline for submissions is October 15, 2015. Please send your abstracts to conference.deml@northsouth.edu. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.  Selected papers will be published in our peer reviewed journal Panini. We will notify candidates of the status of their submission by November 30, 2015.

About NSU /

As an English medium university based on an American academic model located in South Asia, NSU is by its very nature at the confluence of cultures. NSU fosters tolerance and academic pursuits with a multicultural, international focus. We participate fully in the world washed by the English language, contribute to it our own current, and we invite scholars from around the world to join us.

North South University, founded in 1992, was the first, and we trust is still the best, private University in Bangladesh. Home to 18,000 students, we have already made significant strides towards becoming one of Asia’s premier universities. The Department of English and Modern Languages is an integral part of the university and home to over 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students. While the main streams of the department are Literature, Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages, and Linguistics, other interdisciplinary approaches are welcome.
