In his recent writings focusing on socio-psychological of foreign language education, Pishghadam, in fact, has mostly attempted to advocate an "interdisciplinary approach" to language education as a kind of broader-based logic which always ably inspires further new lines of inquiry and research. In other words, he strongly believes that no discipline is self-contained, like an island, entire of itself, but instead each discipline per se can benefit further through an interdisciplinary approach. For this purpose, he has always tried to look into other language-related disciplines (i.e. psychology, sociology, and philosophy) to come up with an optimal conceptualisation of the ELT field either by writing interdisciplinary-driven papers or organising national interdisciplinary conferences in Iran. In search of understanding the uncharted value of the ELT field, he has come to realise that the circle of ELT influence can be particularly expanded in EFL and/or ESL education where language teachers can play a more educational role and can in turn touch on their learners' life-rich matters. In his opinion, a more "educational slant" envisioned for the ELT climate in which its educational capacity and applicability is further recognised and empowered will certainly bear dividends.
