"In the recent times, the horizons of English have expanded beyond the two realms of language and literature. The expansiveness of English as a language and literature has taken a giant leap into numerous scholastic aspects of real life, society and employment arena.

The emergent perspective of teaching English related its various facets such as literature, language and its inter connectivity with several academic and non-academic subjects requires the teachers and educators to gain new insights. Keeping this in view, the conference intended to deliberate upon multi-disciplinary utility of and approach to the study of English literature and language.

According to the organizers of the conference themes of contemporary literatures in English and the nuances of English language were chosen  from the fields of communication studies, social issues, dynamics of corporate subjects like interpersonal relationship, attitudinal reflections, leadership, team spirit, gender studies, etc. The beneficiaries of the conference included students, teachers of UG and PG studies, research scholars, corporate, social activists, and literary personalities, and experts of related inter-disciplinary subjects.
