Meeting Description:

This symposium is organized by and is part of the activities of the Research Project on Inter-Cultural Dialogues. Among other projects, it is hosted and developed within the Research Program on Recognition and the Politics of Otherness.

It has become a common place to speak about globalization as a process that has made the world smaller and more interconnected. But beneath such claims multiple processes remain analytically undefined and critically unexplored. We are interested in assessing how ideas of culture and cultural interactions shape identity, membership, place, rootedness and belonging while simultaneously encouraging misunderstanding, tension and conflict, estrangement, isolation and alienation. In particular, the project will investigate world transformations that have structured cultural flows, given rise to new forms of hybridity, increased nomadic lives and encouraged the proliferation of transitory and transversal interconnections.

Abstract Submission Period Opened: Monday, 3 March 2014.

This trans-disciplinary research project is interested in exploring the diverse ways in which notions of culture and cultural interactions have impacted, at global and local levels, ongoing constructions of identity, society and politics, as well as frameworks of knowledge, ideology and truth.

These are the central themes we seek to explore:

1. Contemporary Reconfigurations of Culture: Who Cares?
2. Cultural Boundaries, Peoples and Places: Why Bother?
3. Identities and Inter-Subjectivities: What Difference?
4. Cultural Formations: Who Knows?
5. Politicizing Culture: What Matters?
6. Art and Cultural Representations: Why Pretend?
7. Crossing Cultural Boundaries: Who's Watching?
