The 6th Malaysia International Conference on Languages, Literatures,
and Cultures

Organized by
The Department of English
Faculty of Modern Languages and Communication
43400 UPM Serdang

Theme: Languages, Literatures, and Cultures: Universals, Distinctions,
and Cross-disciplinay Perspectives.

28-30 April 2009

Marriot Hotel, Putrajaya

The biannual MICOLLAC organized by the Department of English, Faculty
of Modern Languages and Communication, Universiti Putra Malaysia, has
a reputation as a comprehensive conference covering areas of
languages, literatures and cultures. At each of these conferences
(since 1999), we explore how languages, literatures and cultures are
constantly evolving. The coming conference aims to look at how
language universals continue to have an impact on language studies. At
the same time, particular distinctions are also the foray of current
investigations with simultaneous emphasis on cross-disciplinary
perspectives that enrich the macro fields of the links between
languages, literatures and cultures.

MICOLLAC brings together local and international academics, educators,
planners and teaching professionals to exchange views and insights on
past and current practices in the areas of languages, literatures and
cultures with significance for future directions. Attendees will have
excellent opportunities to meet colleagues from Malaysia and other
parts of the world.
