Extended deadline: InterCulturalia Symposium for Students and Young Researchers 2019


The English and French Departments of Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iași, have the great pleasure of extending an open invitation to the third edition of our symposium for students and young researchers.

We take great pride in seeing how the seedling of tradition keeps growing, allowing for students to sound their voices and opinions, in a forum of academic peers. In an era marked by miscommunication, we place great value on opportunities that allow for fruitful repartee, away from the cumbersome entanglements of other media, in an incubator for ideas and great thinkers.

It is this spirit that fuels our academic encounter. Acting as representatives of a multitude of backgrounds, we come together in a fertile conversation revolving around the elusive notions of interculturality, multiculturality and plurilingualism, exploring their multiple facets, definitions and concrete materialization in today’s contexts.

The application for the symposium is open for students of all levels (BA, MA, PhD) and for young researchers who are at the beginning of their academic career and who, thus, will all be given the chance to stand before a perceptive and knowledgeable audience.

With its well-equipped and spacious premises, the venue provided by our university is an important factor of prestige and cohesion. The opportunity of having your work selected for publication in the conference volume is also an aspect of significance, and constitutes a further reason to participate.
