CALL FOR PAPERS
Global Conference: Creating Cultural Synergies –
Setting Intercultural Competence to Work in a Changing World
Sept 29-Oct 1, 2011
Paris-Lodron University, Salzburg, AUSTRIA
Globalization, having brought people in contact with one another at a yet unprecedented scale, has also posed a general challenge to traditionally upheld concepts of race, gender, nation and class. For those living in this rapidly changing cultural landscape, intercultural competence has become a core skill.
The Global Conference in Salzburg aims to bring researchers and practitioners from interdisciplinary fields and settings together to discuss and share research, theory and best practices and foster a dialogue on issues related to setting intercultural theories to work. The conference will have sessions for talks, posters and workshops. We welcome papers in the following categories related to the broader theme of intercultural studies:
· Interculturality and Leadership in Business
· Intercultural Competence and Empowerment
· Language, Politics and Intercultural Communication
· Intercultural Competence in Understanding Religion
It is expected that talks should not last longer than 20 minutes. Speakers whose papers are accepted have to submit a full paper (10 pages, 20.000 – 25.000 words) by 1st November 2011 for publication.
Posters will focus on state-of-the-art research in intercultural competence. Workshops (to be held in German and in English in parallel sessions) will concern themselves with the following topics:
· Intercultural Empowerment
· Intercultural Education
· Intercultural Coaching
Proposals (400-600 words) should be emailed until 15th April, 2011 to Dr. Birgit Breninger: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please state on the proposal whether you want to give a talk, do a poster or hold a workshop.
