In the 21st century, what would be scenarios of research in social science and humanities? How would research be conducted or changed? Would multidisciplinary approach play more roles? These are significant questions researchers and academicians have been trying to cope with and adjust themselves to the current disrupted world.

Since language and society are dynamic and interdependent, people in society learn about language and cultural diversity at the same time. This is the world without boundaries, but disrupted, where different languages and cultures are well blended in the digital era. The study of language and society will benefit from multidisciplinary collaboration. Research in the field has been conducted to give insights of how people, language, and society are intermingled, and thus we can understand them more.

The School of Humanities and Applied Arts, University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, will hold HMAs 40th Anniversary National and International Conference on Approaching the Future through Multidisciplinary Research on June 9, 2020. The conference will feature a variety of presentations and discussions about current research approach focusing on language and its roles in various contexts as well as on multidisciplinary research.


1. provide participants with an overall picture and overview of research in social science and humanities in the 21th century; and
2. share insights into the role of multidisciplinary approach on conducting research in social science and humanities, i.e., communication, business, technology, language teaching and learning, performing arts, media, politics, and others.

Expected Outcomes

1. Participants have a new vision of how multidisciplinary approach impacts their research planning in the 21st century.
2. Participants gain from shared experiences and knowledge obtained from research in social science and humanities.
3. Participants are motivated to conduct more rigorous research based on multidisciplinary collaborations, so a new body of knowledge is generated.
4. Participants make use of the knowledge gained from the conference to develop themselves in both teaching and research work.
