 Deadline extended: 3rd International Conf on Lang., Ling., Lit. and
Translation (Nov. 2016)

Dear colleagues,

I wanted to let you know about an extended CFP deadline for this conference
in Muscat, Oman.

*Connecting the Dots in a Glocalized World*

*3rd International Conference on Language, Linguistics, Literature and

*November 3-5 2016 Oman*

*Department of English Language and Literature*

*Sultan Qaboos University*

*Extended Call Deadline: 25 April 2016*

*Meeting Description*

Connecting the Dots in a Glocalized World 2016 will provide a forum for the
exchange of

ideas in the four main disciplines of language, linguistics, literature and
translation. As the

title for the conference suggests, the aim is to focus on the relationship
between global

themes and local practices, highlighting the under-examined interactions
that occur as

globalization takes on negotiated forms in different contexts. With an
emphasis on

interdisciplinary studies and methodologies, the conference will centralize
both research that

theorizes the links between the local and the global and research that
shows, through practical

evidence, how local and global interact. Proposals that aim to address
either of these two

areas, and which emphasize exploratory, experimental research or
reconstructed concepts,

frameworks of analysis, or approaches, are particularly welcome.

Proposals which fall outside the focus of the conference, but within the
disciplines of

language, linguistics, literature and translation, will also be considered.

*Confirmed Keynote Speakers*

· Jan Blommaert (Linguistics), Tilburg University, The Netherlands

· Michael Cronin (Translation), Dublin City University, Ireland
