IntroductionTopicsCommitteeConference FeesSubmission
Dear scholars,
You are invited to participate in the Multilingual International Conference, to be held at the Southeast European University, in Tetovo, North Macedonia, on September 19-20, 2019.
Multilingualism is an ever increasing phenomenon in today’s societies and can be approached from very different viewpoints. The process of globalization has created a suitable environment for learning and speaking foreign languages. Therefore, multilingualism is becoming a societal imperative. In this respect, the Southeast European University has continued to pursue the policy of “flexible” use of languages by maintaining and nurturing its multilingual and multicultural character and profile.
The main aim of this conference shall be to bring together scholars whose professional preoccupation is English, Albanian, German and Macedonian language, literature and culture. It is an international conference as many scholars are expected to come from the region and/or beyond.
Except for prominent scholars in the mentioned scientific fields, we also expect postgraduate students from various countries, whose main interest is in the field of English, Albanian, German and Macedonian language, literature and culture to attend.
The topics to consider for this conference shall primarily be related but not necessarily limited to English, Albanian, German and Macedonian language, literature and culture , either as separate entities under scholarly discussions, or comparative ones, which would also include related contexts in determined scientific levels and interpretations. Specifically speaking, topics should include the following:
  • English language and literature studies
  • Albanian Language and Literature
  • German Language and Literature
  • Macedonian Language and Literature
  • Communication Sciences and International Communication
  • Cultural Studies
  • Challenges and Possibilities of multilingualism in schools and universities
  • Applied Linguistics
  • Educational Sciences
  • Multilingualism and Multiculturalism
