It is with deep regret that we have to inform you of the recent passing of Maura Gallagher. She is seen below (standing in white jacket) with Alice Davis (seated), Acting President of SIETAR Ireland.

Maura was a long-standing member of SIETAR Europa and was instrumental in introducing many people in Ireland and the UK to SIETAR. She was a founding member of SIETAR Ireland. Maura died in Ireland on July 27, 2014 and was buried a few days later. We honour her memory with appreciation for the contribution she made to SIETAR.

2014 Annual Conference of SIETAR Bulgaria

The 2014 Annual conference of SIETAR Bulgaria, took place on June 11, 2014 at the Conference Hall of Sofia University ‘St.Kliment Ohridski’ (Sofia, Bulgaria).

The theme of the conference Dimensions of the Intercultural communication (European accents)’ has attracted not only the regular members of the organizations, but also other participants, working on intercultural issues and initiatives.

The official opening speech of the conference was delivered by the Rector of the hosting university – prof. Ivan Ilchev, Ph.Habil., who expressed his satisfaction and support for the choice of the conference theme. The participants were also greeted by Dr Livingstone Thompson - President of SIETAR Europa. In his video-address he pointed out the high expectations of the SIETAR Europa regarding the outcomes of the conference.

In the plenary session, the European focus of the conference was underlined by the keynote speaker – Mr. Ognian.Zlatev, Head of the Official Representation of the EU Commission in Bulgaria.  

The other reports and discussions of the conference were organized in 3 main sections:

  • Intercultural Communication in the United Europe - problems and  solutions;
  • Educational paradigms and practices – intercultural aspects;
  • Interculturalism - linguistic aspects.

The most interesting presentations will be published in one of the next issues of the Bulgarian e-magazine ‘Rhetoric and communications’.

The UN World Day for Cultural Diversity and Dialogue, May 21, is a reminder to us that developing education and intercultural skills to sustain the diversity and strengthen harmony of societies is a challenge that still lies before us. For this reason SIETAR Europa, as part of its commitment to intercultural values, has made renewing paradigms of culture and diversity a thematic focus for the coming twelve months. The next SIETAR Europa congress, which will be held in Valencia, Spain on May 20-24, 2015 under that theme, will therefore be a way to observe the 2015 World Day of Cultural Diversity and Dialogue. SIETAR Europa invites you to join us in Refreshing the Cultural Paradigm.

Livingstone Thompson, President of SIETAR Europa.
