The 1st International Conference
Research Initiative on Teaching Persian Language and Literature
Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies
University of Cambridge. 1-2 December 2017 (provisional)
This research initiative, which will take the form of biennial international conferences, addresses teachers and lecturers of Persian and examines developments and innovations in Persian language and literature teaching. This first conference hopes to broadly identify specific challenges related to the teaching of Persian language and Persian literature, and seeks to explore the positive or detrimental aspects of linking the study of literary texts to language learning.
The papers are allocated 20 minutes each. Would interested teachers and lecturers of Persian language and Persian literature send their abstracts (not exceeding 300 words) by 25 September 2017 to Dr. Mahbod Ghaffari email@example.com. All abstracts undergo double-blind peer review and the successful applicants will be informed by 9 October 2017.
The registration is free for the speakers. We encourage applicants to approach their institution to cover their travel and accommodation costs, though we hope to be able to partly fund accommodation and meals in Cambridge
