Call for Papers

Rationale

The Institute of Language, Art and Culture, Suan Dusit Rajabhat University would like to invite teachers, educators, students, and all stakeholders in the academic field to participate in the 5th Annual ILAC International Conference on Language and Culture on July 2 and 3, 2015 at Raktakanishta Hall, Suan Dusit Rajabhat University, Bangkok, Thailand.

The conference theme this year is “Moving towards an Integration of Language and Culture”. As we realize that language is inseparable from its culture, it is of paramount importance to integrate the knowledge of culture into language classroom. The main objective of the 2015 conference is to find promising ways to emphasize cultural awareness or cultural sensitivity in the practice of teaching and learning a foreign language. With the understanding of the culture of the target language and the local culture of each nation, we can prepare our people to be able to communicate with the population of the world successfully. In addition, the conference also aims to reflect the splendid heritage and cultural diversity of the Asian region which should be preserved and shared with others outside the region.

 

Objectives

1. To celebrate and appreciate the beauty of languages and cultures belonging to people of different ethnic groups

2. To enhance cooperation and promote better understanding among people of different cultures

3. To provide an opportunity for academics to present papers on languages and cultures
