The English Department of Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania has the pleasure to invite you to the 9th edition of its biennial international conference
Constructions of Identity 9:
New World – New Ideas
October 27-28, 2017
In its 20-year long history this conference has contributed significantly to research in literature and linguistics under its overarching main theme of how language, literature and philology research itself shape people’s perception of the world, of otherness, and ultimately, of themselves. This year we welcome contributions that are not shy of experimenting with new and fresh perspectives, as we hope that our sessions will prove successful in providing the opportunity for lively exchange of new ideas and building future research partnerships
A selection of peer-reviewed papers will be published in an ISSN Conference Proceedings volume (in PDF format) at Presa Universitară Clujeană publishing house which has national CNCS accreditation.
