Dear all,

It is our pleasure that we hosted YOU at the Seventh International Conference on Narrative and Language Studies (NALANS) 2018

First and Foremost, we have to underline the inspirational motivation and scientific ground provided by International Journal of Narrative and Language Studies (NALANS) and Turkish Notes Project (T-Notes) Team. 

We should highlight the invaluable support of Prof. Dr. Hikmet Öksüz, Assoc. Prof. Bayram Sevinç and Asst. Prof. Dr. Fehmi Turgut, from the Faculty of Letters and School of Foreign Languages, Karadeniz Technical University, Trabzon, Turkey. We should like to thank our keynote speakers for sharing their erudite insights into language and literature with us; Prof. Dr. Marie-Laure Ryan (USA), Prof. Dr. Yasemin Bayyurt (Boğaziçi University), Assist. Prof. Dr. Tzu Yu Allison Lin (Gaziantep University) and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Naci Kayaoğlu (KTU). They are distinguished scholars in the field, whose remarkable contribution, we believe, will be of note for long in the history of the conference. 

All in all, we would love to express our gratitude to those who come from different spots of the world to meet us.

We extend our kind feelings to those who rejoice the sense of language studies as presenters and participants at the conference, and those who convey their excitement and enthusiasm visiting the poster stands and attending the sessions.

As regards the conference, it has been a gateway between Europe and Asia, covering different fields of academic research and survey into language, literature and culture. 

The event has brought together various languages such as Russian and Turkish as well as English.
Starting with the first conference held in 2012, our conferences have witnessed momentous meetings and have provided an academic platform for the discussion of various aspects.

Over the years, we have improved our projections and happily seen the flourishing of the mindset of the young researchers interested in cross-cultural and inter-disciplinary dimensions of language studies.
Once again, thank you for your contribution.

See you at the 8th International Conference on Narrative and Language Studies Conference, 2019.

Warm regards,


Mustafa Zeki ÇIRAKLI (Conference Chairman) & Öznur YEMEZ (Conference Secretary)
