2nd CFP: Transcultural Encounters: Understanding Humans in Change

Ilmoituksen tiedotIlmoituksen lähetti: Kari Alenius

The second Transcultural Encounters Conference will take place at the University of Oulu in June 8th–9th, 2017. The theme of the conference is Understanding Humans in Change. This is one of the focus areas of research at the University of Oulu. This conference is organized by the TCERC, Transcultural Encounters Research Center.

 The conference focus area, Understanding Humans in Change explores the complex dynamics of the global, digital, environmental and economic change on current human interaction and on communities and cultures over time. The research identifies and explains the reasons, processes and practices involved in these changes, shows how humans adapt to them, and predicts the effects they will have on humanity in the future.

The conference seeks to gather researchers from different disciplines to discuss topics and aspects of the various processes of change which concern humanity. It discusses the wide field of meanings and applications of change in the humanities, including social sciences and various interdisciplinary fields. The conference focuses on questions which are of interest e.g. for historians, cultural researchers, and cultural geographers, as well as for researchers of sociolinguistics (e.g. language contacts and minority languages), literary scholars and social scientists.

Topics and keywords for submissions may include some of the following (not exclusively):
