THE 6TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON Multicultural Discourses, October 23-25, 2018, Tilburg, the Netherlands
Following the past and recent successes of the International Conference on Multicultural Discourses, with the latest held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 2016, we have now decided to hold the event once every two years instead of three.
This means that the 6th International Conference on Multicultural Discourses will be held from Oct 23-Oct 25, 2018 at the Department of Culture Studies – School of Humanities at Tilburg University, the Netherlands. The event will be co-organized by the Babylon – Centre for the Study of Superdiversity affiliated to the same institution – and the Centre for Contemporary Chinese Discourse Studies, Hangzhou Normal University, and hosted by the former.
Taking cultural discourse studies (CDS) as the central frame of reference, the aim of this international conference is to investigate the affordances, shortcomings, as well as unexplored potentials offered by the multicultural discourses as an intellectual movement when engaged with recent conceptual developments and areas of interest across the social sciences and the humanities.
The conference is therefore intended to provide the wide scholarly community with a forum that explores cultural forms of and approaches to the following issues.
