Concept Note
The number of Conferences on ELT in National and International level really inspires a person to look into the causes behind the recent rise of English language.  A research interest in this cause brings out the fact that though English came into public use centuries back, this colonial/commercial tongue came to the lime light during the recent past.  In the last few decades there has been a sudden awakening towards the importance and need of the EL acquisition all over the world. A daring attempt to look into the reasons for this mighty growth of English language into the status of an omnipotent language leads one to the fact that it is the emerging life style, social set up and global requirement that has fuelled this rise. The factors that made the society bring up English language to this status opens up as a highly significant topic for discussion.
Everybody thinks about the impact of language and literature on society; but here we reverse the order and call attention to how the social changes influence language and literature. It is the social requirements that raised English language to its present status. A glimpse into the background of it shows that the society underwent a lot of changes; and the impact of those changes resulted in the luring position of English language in the global context. A study of the past 100 years shows the various changes society faced in the field of industrialization, (information technology) technology, politics (administration), international crime, economy, education, gender equity, urbanization and globalization. The result of all these changes and challenges is globalization and the need of a common language for the people of this small village called world. For business, for education, for science and technology there was the need for a common language. Thus rose up the most popular language English to the status of global language. Now with the changing scenario in the utility and importance of English language there is a change in its form and structure that has occurred especially in the SMS, Email & Business writings.
It is an interesting phenomenon to look into the role played by society in promoting English language to its present unique status. It is also interesting to look into how this colonial language was adjusted and adapted to hold a mirror to the contemporary social changes & upheavals.  Any individual interested in learning English must know the interrelationship of the trio: the society, the language and the literature. Since it is an activity of global importance and interest, we have created the platform for an international conference on “The Impact of Social Changes on English Language and Literature: An Overview of Past 100 Years”
