REFRESHING THE CULTURAL PARADIGM
SHARING STORIES, THEORIES, NEXT PRACTICES
CALL FOR PAPERS
We are delighted to invite you the SIETAR Europa Congress 2015, which will be held in Valencia, Spain, 21-23 May 2015. The congress theme is:
Refreshing the Cultural Paradigm: Sharing Stories, Theories and Next Practices.
This congress welcomes all those whose life and work puts them at the interface of cultures, from the perspectives of economy, society, and education with the aim of reshaping intercultural discourse, questioning our current cultural paradigms and exploring new thinking to help us navigate complexity in our emerging global world. Thus our congress title mirrors this need.
With an aim to re-examine our cultural dimensions, understandings and paradigms, we invite submissions that question, critique, explore and refresh our cultural paradigms and theories, share new methods and best practices. We invite those engaged in business, training and research (including independent consultants, education, organisations) shaping European public sphere (NGO’s, governmental organisations and institutions) as well as media and arts to participate and share contributions from all disciplines and fields that deal with intercultural issues.
The location, Valencia, Spain, has been chosen as a strong, visible example of the mixing of the cultural heritage and modern technology. Its exposure to the Mediterranean shores and its historical mixture represents the potential of cultural synergies.
This is an exciting opportunity for researchers, practitioners and individuals at the interface of cultures in media, the arts, government and NGO’s, particularly in the European context, to exchange ideas shaping our intercultural world.
