    7th Global Conference: Interculturalism, Meaning and Identity in Prague 

    7th Global Conference

    Interculturalism, Meaning and Identity

    Tuesday 18th March – Thursday 20th March 2014

    Prague, Czech Republic

    Call for Presentations:

    Interculturalism stands at the interface between the individual, local groups, societies and cultures. These compete, conflict, co-exist and trigger reactions and responses on a number of levels including the social, the economic, the political and the personal. These are reinforced through language, the media, cultural events, social institutions and migration policies. Amidst all these dynamic and static forms of interaction, identities are built and consolidated.

    The previous meeting of this project recognised that identity is not something which is fixed and predetermined but rather is continuously created and recreated from the day-to-day flow of living in communities. With mobility not simply a commonplace factor in society but continuing to rapidly expand, people are faced with challenges to and changes in their own identity as a result of encounters with new cultures, new ways of living and new ways of thinking. People find themselves forging and reforging their identities through integration, assimilation, disintegration, reintegration… and so the pattern continues.

    The 2014 conference will build on the work of previous meetings in this series and examine the meaning and parameters of Interculturalism, how it is studied and what it means. How can we talk meaningfully of interculturalism? What role does hybridity play in understanding the way cultures morph, adapt and become suited to their context?

    The focus of the 2014 Interculturalism conference will be on Identity and Interculturalism:

    -What are the frameworks used for studying interculturalism? How did these frameworks evolve?
    -Have the politics of identity been substituted for discourse on democracy since the ‘Arab Spring’ (as they were after the fall of the Soviet Union)?
    -How does understanding of cultural signifiers assist in studying intercultrualism?
    -Recent criticism of literature has emphasized the problematics of identity and meaning associated with globalisation; how so and why?
    -What are the implications of processes adopted to consider the centre-periphery?
    -How do the immersion, absorption and the intersection of cultures promote a better understanding of individual and group identities?
    -Is “Transculturalism” possible in disputes over resource use?
    -How can “Transculturalism” be taught more effectively to professional field workers, such asas nurses, teachers, aid workers, psychologists etc?
    -What can one learn from and about significance of Cross Cultural Psychology and Interculturalism, as well as Autism and Interculturalism and cultural manifestations of identity, Citizenship and Diaspora?
    -Are patterns of cognition governed by acculturalisation?
    -Is intercultural experience therapeutic or problematic in respect of mental health?

    Presentations will also be considered which deal with related themes.

    What to Send
    300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 11th October 2013. All submissions are minimally double blind peer reviewed where appropriate. If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 17th January 2014. Abstracts should be submitted simultaneously to the Organising Chairs; abstracts may be in Word or RTF formats with the following information and in this order:

    a) author(s), b) affiliation, c) email address, d) title of abstract, e) body of abstract
    E-mails should be titled: Interculturalism 7 Abstract Submission

    Please use plain text (Times Roman 12) and abstain from using footnotes and any special formatting, characters or emphasis (such as bold, italics or underline). We acknowledge receipt and answer to all paper proposals submitted. If you do not receive a reply from us in a week you should assume we did not receive your proposal; it might be lost in cyberspace! We suggest, then, to look for an alternative electronic route or resend.

    Joint Organising Chairs:

    Efrat Tzadik: efrat.tzadik@law.kuleuven.be
    Ram Vemuri and Rob Fisher:ic7@inter-disciplinary.net

    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.

    Master’s degree ‘Cultures and Society, XVI-XXIth centuries’ University of Burgundy (Dijon, France) 

    MASTER’S DEGREE CULTURES AND SOCIETY
    (XVI-XXIth centuries)

    University of Burgundy (Dijon-France)

    The master’s degree ‘Cultures and Society’, linked to the ‘Knowledge, norms and sensibilities’ program of the Centre Georges Chevrier, aims to provide training of high quality delivered by teams of teachers and researchers whose work is authoritative in the two privileged fields of the center: ‘Social history, institutions and conflict’ and ‘History of the arts, cultural creation and dissemination’. The program is deliberately international in scope, and is studied on a European scale. This research specialism, organized in two clearly defined parts, aims to make more visible the coherence of the training across the Great East of France, and complements that of the University of France-Comté.

    Organisation de la formation

    The choice of options in the second term allows students to build an individualized program which leads to their specialism for Master’s 2 research, and to the Professional Master’s of Burgundy University (XXth and XXIst century European archives; the arts, cultural and heritage sectors). Master’s 2 research offers two possibilities: ‘Social history, institutions and conflicts’ and ‘History of the arts, cultural creation and dissemination’.

    The first term offers common courses in the history of the different artistic disciplines, methodology of the social sciences, archival and documentary techniques and languages.

    There are research seminars on social history or the history of the arts, institutions and conflicts and creation and cultural dissemination.

    Employment opportunities: secondary school teacher, senior researcher; scientific and cultural coordinator.

    Types of jobs: cultural coordinator, researcher, project manager, heritage manager, curator, exhibition manager.
