Conference description:

In the wake of globalization we have seen an increasing interest in the humanities and social sciences in the nature and function of human community on a global scale. So far, however, questions about the past, present and future of global community have been broached sectorally within separatefields, with little exchange of ideas and knowledge between fields.

Global Communities – Transnational and Transdisciplinary Exchanges is a multidisciplinary research conference that seeks to improve this situation by allowing scholars in the humanities and social sciences to exchange ideas and perspectives on global forms of community and interaction.The conference will feature keynote lectures by prominent scholars in the humanities and the social sciences, workshop sessions for paper discussion and a concluding round table.

We now warmly invite senior and junior scholars as well as PhD students to submit paper proposals for the conference. Since the aim of the conference is to take stock of the state of the art internationally in different fields as well as to open forexchange across fields participants will be selected based on the quality and originality of the paper proposals. Our aim is to publish the proceedings from the conference with a major university press.
