English studies have flourished like rhizome involving a wide range of theoretical framework from different disciplines like education, linguistics, psychology, sociology, folklore and anthropology, translation studies, cultural studies, communication, teaching and learning pedagogy, politics etcetera, thereby making its growth in multiple axes. This experience of a plurality of contact zones creates spaces of liminality that are relational and at the same time open to the questioning of any kind of borders for the interdisciplinary approach.

Our main is to provide a forum for discussion and to facilitate integration in these fields and to bring together researchers, scholars, and students from all areas of language, literature, culture, and other related disciplines from all around the world.
