Digital disruption and the COVID-19 pandemic have highlighted the importance of humanities and social sciences in addressing contemporary issues such as social interactions, digital divide, and online education management, among other things. In today’s disruptive world, these problems necessitate novel ways to better education and research, and one such approach is through the application of interdisciplinary perspectives to best address the most pressing challenges of our time.

The conference will feature a variety of presentations and discussions about current research approaches, focusing on languages and their roles in various contexts as well as on interdisciplinary research.


The conference aims to :
1. provide participants with an overall picture of current research in humanities and social sciences in the 21st century.
2. share insights into the role of interdisciplinary approach on conducting research in humanities and social sciences.
3. empower academics and researchers to build collaborative networks.
