Impact of Media and New Technologies on Languages
7-9 december 2009
The Fifth International Conference of the Faculty Al-Alsun
The organsiation committee is expressing her deep regret about having to suspend the conference for at least the winter season. We thank our dear colleagues who interact with us and reiterate our regret.
Welcome to the Fifth International Conference of the Faculty of Al-Alsun, Minia University to be held Monday through Wednesday, December 7-9/2009 at the Suzanne Mubarak Auditorium, Minia University, Egypt. The conference will be held under the title "The impact of Media and New technologies on languages".
We invite to explore new research in language, linguistics and literature through the use of the Internet, multimedia and new technologies (the digital discourse of blogs, wikis, texts, instant messaging, video games, emails, podcasting, hypertexts, web communities, etc.). The conference is searching topics including both the way in which language-related themes are represented in the media as well as looking at how language specialists might communicate more effectively with and through the media. Contributions include works on media in all its forms including newspapers, radio, television, computer-mediated communication, and mobile-mediated communication.
We hope that the 5th ICFAMU will be a great occasion to exchange and expertise on an international scale.
