2nd International Conference on Language, Literature and Cultural Studies (2nd ICLLCS)

We are pleased to announce 2nd International Conference on Language, Literature and Cultural Studies (2nd ICLLCS). It is an interdisciplinary conference focusing on the exploration of a broad range of language, literature and cultural themes. The conference presents a timely opportunity to discuss these issues, to provide a forum for exchange of ideas and research outcomes and to address challenges to the vision of an integrated ASEAN Community in relation to language, literature and cultural studies. We invite academics and students, scholars, experts, and researchers to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations on any area of language, literature and cultural studies.

The conference will take place on 20 – 21 August 2015 in Pattaya, Chon Buri, Thailand. The conference program will feature two plenary talks and a workshop. A welcome reception will also be held on the first day of the conference in the evening. An optional programme to a Pattaya's famous night live entertainment will immediately follow the conference.
