CFP Multicultural Identities (SIETAR Italia)

Multicultural Identities: Understanding the Sense of Belonging
Milan, 5-6 May 2017
Call for Papers and Presentations
“We are living in an age of both harmonization and of dissonance. Never have men had so many things in common – knowledge, points of reference, images, words, instruments and tools of all kinds. But this only increases their desire to assert their differences.”
(Amin Maalouf, L’identità, 1998)

The notion of identity – be it personal, religious, ethnic or national – is important to interculturalists. It is through learning about our own and about the identities of other individuals and groups that we come to know what makes us similar and different. In a global and multicultural world, individuals and organizations have increasingly multiple identities, asserting different identities in different circumstances and moments in their lives, according to the context and the people they are interacting with. Furthermore, intercultural interactions are ever more frequent, consequently identities are in continuous evolution, and often in conflict.SIETAR ITALIA has chosen the subject of its 9th conference to be “Multicultural Identities: Understanding the Sense of Belonging”. The objective is to foster greater understanding of these developments and its implication for interculturalists in the areas of education, work, institutions and social matters.With this conference, SIETAR ITALIA intends to showcase the latest research and explore the ambivalences, fluctuations and modalities which underpin multicultural identities. The conference wants to facilitate a debate amongst practitioners and will be a forum for networking and professional development.
During the conference, artistic projects and exhibitions will contribute to a further re ection on the theme of “Multicultural Identities”.

All members, friends and sympathizers who have worked on the subject of “Identity” are welcome to propose papers or presentations that shed new light on, but are not limited to the following topics:
·        Multicultural and global identities and social challenges
·        Multicultural identity and the world of global (team) collaboration
·        Diversity Management practices
·        Identity issues in the context of education
·        Language and cultural identity
·        Art and Film works on multicultural identities

All those interested are kindly requested to send their abstracts by completing this template not later than 10th January 2017 to info@sietar-italia.org.
