The 7th Global Conference on Multiculturalism, Conflict and Belonging will be held 1st September-3rd September 2013, at Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom.
This multi-disciplinary project seeks to explore the new and prominent place that the idea of culture has for the construction of identity and the implications of this for social membership in contemporary societies. In particular, the project will assess the 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 of globalisation on tensions, conflicts and on the sense of rootedness and belonging. Looking to encourage innovative trans-disciplinary dialogues, the organizers warmly welcome papers from all disciplines, professions and vocations which struggle to understand what it means for people, the world over, to forge identities in rapidly changing national, social and cultural contexts.
Papers, workshops and presentations are invited on any of the following themes:
1. Ethnicity, Religion and Human Rights
2. Intergenerational Values under Migration
3. Local, National and Global Citizenship
4. Intercultural and Intracultural Diversification under Multiculturalism
5. Creating and Redefining Concepts
Papers will be considered on any related theme. 300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 22nd March 2013. Please see the website for more details and submission process.
