About Conference

It is our pleasure to inform you that Universitas Negeri Jakarta, Indonesia in cooperation with Jordan University of Science and Technology, would hold an international conference on ‘Language and Human Thoughts: Language and Social Sciences in Civilization Development’ on 9-10 August 2016 in Jakarta Indonesia.

Language is one of the most important parts in the process of human thinking and directly relates to the mind, emotion, feeling, and ideas that are communicated in various ways. Human creations or products are expressed through language within individuals or mainly in social contexts.

Human thoughts are discovered, published, explained, appreciated, criticised, transferred, and modified through language. Language and human thoughts in social interaction and social phenomena is therefore inseparable. Without language human are not able to think, and without thoughts human are not able to have language, and without language there will be great challenges in the process of social interaction. The conference focuses on the contribution of language in preservation and development of sciences, and the contribution of sciences in developing and preserving language.
