ICLELT Conference

Welcome to ICLELT page!

The organizing committe of the International Conference on Literature and English Language Teaching (ICLELT) is pleased to launch this interdisciplinary conference which takes place for the first time in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Our aim is to bring together scholars and practitioners from Literature and ELT backgrounds in order to engage in thought-provoking debates to advance our knowledge and understanding of these two important areas as we approach the third decade of the 21st century.

The conference organizers are particularly interested in new and emerging perspectives in the areas of both ELT and literature. ELT abstracts which touch on the challenges and new perspectives on issues impacting the teaching and learning of English in the MENA region will be given priority. In particular, we are interested in submissions that address the overarching theme of teaching English in international contexts. However, submissions that address the conference sub-themes specified in the call for papers are also welcomed.

The overarching theme of the literature strand is the diverse ways in which Arabia has been perceived by writers through the centuries and particularly asks the question whether portrayals of Arabia in literature are being reshaped at the present time. However, all thought-provoking abstracts are welcomed as long as they have a wide appeal to a world literature audience.
