2018 05 10 Conferinta DLS 1000 “Crossing Boundaries in Culture and Communication” is an annual international conference organized by the Department of Foreign Languages of the Romanian-American University in Bucharest, meant to bring together the preoccupations and contributions of those interested in human communication and cultural phenomena in the global context: foreign language educators, academic researchers, journalists and others, from schools, universities or alternative areas of humanistic approach around this country and abroad.

The papers presented in the Conference are gathered in the homonymous journal (published twice a year) and they reflect a variety of perspectives and innovative ideas on topics such as (applied) linguistics, translation studies, FLT, literary / cultural studies and their related fields, providing opportunities for professional development and research.

This unity in diversity should be achieved by connections established within and among a variety of fields which often blend into each other, proving the interdisciplinarity of modern research: education, teaching, literature, media etc. which also allow complementary approaches in linguistics, rhetoric, sociology etc.

As we don’t want to reveal too much right from the beginning, and by thanking all contributors and participants in advance, the organizing board welcomes your presence in our event and invites the interested ones to unravel the various topics which put forward the concerns and the findings of a challenging professional community.

Who should attend

We invite educators, researchers, Ph.D. students and all professionals working in both public & private sectors to submit the extended abstracts for the Conference.
