Call for paper: 4th Global Conference: Interculturalism, Meaning and Identity
This multi-disciplinary project seeks to explore the new and prominent place that the idea of culture has for the construction of meaning and identity, as well as the implications for social political membership in contemporary societies. In particular the project will assess the larger context of major world transformations, for example, new forms of migration and the massive movements of people across the globe, as well as the impact and contribution of globalisation on tensions, conflicts and the sense of rootedness and belonging.
The conference is part of the ‘Diversity and Recognition’ research projects, which in turn belong to the ‘At the Interface’ programmes of Inter-Disciplinary.Net. It aims to bring together people from different areas and interests to share ideas and explore discussions which are innovative and challenging.
Papers, workshops, presentations and pre-formed panels are invited on any of the following themes:
- Contemporary Rediscoveries and Redefinitions of Culture
- Cultural Boundaries, Peoples and Nations
- Individuals, Identity and the Inter-Subjective
- Cultural Formations
- Politicising Culture
- Art and Cultural Representations
Abstracts should be submitted by Friday 1st October 2010.
March 8 - 10, 2011, Prague, Czech Republic
