About Event

In an era where technology and social media are claimed to help in breaking/dissolving boundaries and creating a unified globe, borders continue to exist. Some of these are physical, imaginary and psychological reflected in language, literature, linguistics and the arts. It is still a world where barriers and borders are constructed or reconstructed. Intersections of different kinds of borders, such as those of ethnicity, class and gender, are among the prominent features of our world, and so are different forms of interdisciplinarity and multimodality. Admittedly, attempts at crossing existing borders are constantly made, sometimes with great success, other times with utter failure.
