IV. International Symposium on Asian Language and Literatures Call for Papers

Within its wide boundaries, culture creates written and visual reflection areas for itself. As the reflection area expands through time, space and nature, it becomes richer, and as it gets richer, it needs to be appreciated. The cultural reflection of historical accumulation leaves us in front of an immense mirror.

In its fourth meeting, Symposium on Asian Languages and Literatures is inviting you to read cultures via texts produced in the Asian geography. Between 2–4 February, 2017, in Aurangabad, India, you are also invited to explore and investigate the reflections of a joy of a birth, a funeral ritual, a merriness of a melody, the taste of a meal on the texts that Asia has accumulated throughout its history.

The Symposium will be open to disciplines such as Language, Literature, Cultural Studies, Sociology, Anthropology, Philosophy, Fine Arts, Theology, History, History of Arts and Multidisciplinary Studies. Abstracts are welcome in the following topic strands or other related topics:
