>Call for Papers
>This inter- and 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 also 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. Looking to
>encourage innovative trans-disciplinary dialogues, we 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.
>
>In this project, culture is primarily conceived in relation to the
>dimension of the political and in interrelation with the politics of
>social belonging. In this context, culture is understood as having
>profound consequences over life, experience and behaviour, both
>forming and informing political actions, positions and orientations.
>Conflict and social belonging are grounded in this context.
>
>Papers, workshops and presentations are invited on any of the
>following themes:
>
>1. Challenging Old Concepts of Self and Other

>~ The new value of social diversity and cultural multiplicity;
>breaking with homogeneity and sameness

>normalisation in defining identity and membership
>~ How to account for social membership and cultural identity?
>~ Making sense of transformations and their effects over culture,
>identity and membership
>~ Othering, excluding, stygmatising
>
>2. Nations, Nationhood and Nationalisms
>~ What does it mean, today, to belong to a nation?
>~ New migrants, new migratory flows and massive movements from
>peripheral to central countries
>~ Resurgence of the local and the diminishing importance of the national
>~ Are we living post-national realities?
>~ What is the place of cultural claims in todayís forms of social
>membership?
>~ Assimilation, integration, adaptation and other forms of placing the
>responsibility of change on the Other
>
>3. Institutions, Organizations and Social Movements
>~ Evaluating the promises and institutions of post-national governing
>~ Institutions and organisations that do more for money than for people
>~ Political battles over globalization
>~ Social movements, new rebellion and alternative globalizations
>~ Trans-cultural connections that escape institutional and political
>intentions or control
>~ New forms of global exclusion
>
>4. Persons, Personhood and the Inter-Personal
>~ De-centering individuals and the making of persons; thinking and
>acting with others in mind and interpersonally
>~ Tensions, contradictions and conflicts of identity formations and
>social membership
>~ New sources and forms of belonging; new tribalism, localism,
>parochialism and communitarianism
>~ Bonds of care across boundaries of inequality and exclusion,
>ideologies and religions, politics and power, nations and geography
>~ Who am I if not the relation with others?
>~ Non-recognition as cultural violence
>
>5. Media and Artistic Representations

>~ What is shared from cultures? How are cultures shared? Who has
>access to the sharing of cultures?

>context: Is that transculturalism?
>~ Languages, idioms and new emerging forms of wanting to bridge the
>ëinvisibleí divide of cultures

>ëtheir owní
>~ Culture, identity and belonging by choice

>belonging and being
