The University of Jos (UNIJOS) is set to hold an international conference organised by the department of English.


In a statement, the institution said over 300 scholars will participate in the conference tagged ‘Language, Communication and Literature in an Uncertain and Turbulent World’.

Jeff Doki, the convener and head of English department, and Jerome Dooga, chairman of local organising committee, said the event will hold from April 17 to 19.

The organisers said the conference is aimed at amplifying the fact that language and communication hold the key to how “we understand and respond to a world full of uncertainty and turbulence.”


“In this premier international
conference, we want to strengthen several hundreds of co-researchers and practitioners from a wide range of linguistic, educational, social and cultural organisations who share the aim of making language, communication and literature socially engaging and internationally relevant to our dynamic and uncertain world,” the statement reads.

“This conference consolidates the global notion of political, social, economic, health and cultural instability. We hope that this conference would create a community that should intervene in the major debates of our time and generate fresh ideas to mitigate the communication-related issues begging for answers.

“A key question here may be about capacity-building and competency for contemporary language learners, researchers and activists.


“Hence, this conference is a call for action. How do we boldly communicate the impact of the work languages, communication and literature do in the
world? These conference sub-themes would help address this and many other questions.”
