UNIJOS hosts conference on language, literature

Over 300 participants have been scheduled to partake in an international conference organised by the Department of English of the University of Jos, 

The conference with the theme, “Language, communication, and literature in an uncertain and turbulent world,’ is scheduled to hold from April 17 to 19, 2023.

A statement issued by the convener and Head, Department of English, University of Jos, Prof. Jeff Doki, and the Chairman, Local Organising Committee, Jerome Dooga, read in part, “In this premier international conference, we want to strengthen several hundreds of co-researchers and practitioners from a wide range of linguistic, educational, social, and cultural organisations who share the aim of making language, communication, and literature socially engaging and internationally relevant to our dynamic and uncertain world.

“This conference consolidates the global notion of political, social, economic, health, and cultural instability. We hope that this conference would create a community that should intervene in the major debates of our time and generates fresh ideas to mitigate the communication-related issues begging for answers. A key question here may be about capacity-building and competency for contemporary language learners, researchers, and activists.”
