Conference Theme: “Languages and Cultures in a Globalizing World: Diversity, Interculturality, Hybridity”
Deadline: Submit abstracts and panel proposals by 28th February, 2017.
ConferenceWorking Language: English
In today’s world, globalization erases boundaries and leads to increased contact among various languages and cultures. While human contact and migration have always been present throughout history, e.g., on the Silk Road, today’s media and transport capacities facilitate contact and communication to an exponentially greater extent than ever before. As a consequence, the phenomena of diversity, interculturality and hybridity are intensified. Juxtaposed to increased contact ensuing from globalization are both the positive and negative aspects of the protectionist efforts of localism. The theme of this conference seeks to examine the context of these problems within the spheres of education, language, culture, and society.
