Abstract

The current article is an attempt to cover conferences and discussions on redefining the meaning of literature, not only in its typical sense, but also in its broader sense. In fact, the text is trying to find the complicated meaning and relationships in literature in different societies, cultures, and aims to find similarities and common areas in this field. Literature in a sublime position is capable to influence on politics, economy and sociology, and it has a major and functional role other than intertextuality. The present report exemplifies some conferences by outlining their most important goals and tries to find an obvious guideline to research in today’s literature and its future.
