Subject: [Nietzsche] Call for Papers: Multiculturalism,


 
Call for Papers: "MULTICULTURALISM, PLURALISM AND GLOBALIZATION" 

An interdisciplinary conference sponsored by
THE WISCONSIN INSTITUTE FOR PEACE AND CONFLICT STUDIES and the University of
Wisconsin-LaCrosse
Office of International Education and Department of History


OCTOBER 4-5, 2007


Keynote Speaker: Harvey Sarles, Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature,
University of Minnesota 

We invite proposals for individual papers and entire panels for an
interdisciplinary conference on multiculturalism, pluralism, and
globalization.  Papers and presentations from all disciplines and time
periods are welcome.  

>From ancient times to the present, people have sought to understand and
create their identities both as individuals and as groups.  In so doing,
they not only define who they are, but also who they are not.  What makes
one group different from another?  Who defines those differences?  What are
the consequences of such definitions? To what degree do these definitions
create opportunities for conflict and for peace? And why do differences
between groups so often lead to collective forms of violence such as war,
genocide, terrorism and ethnic cleansing?

Possible topics include, but are not limited to: immigration and diasporas;
"clash of civilizations"; diversity; definitions of community; economic
class and property; race, ethnicity and language; nationalism and the
nation; separatism, tolerance, and integration; identity politics; national
or tribal membership and identity; ecologies of place or of culture; human
rights, civil rights and natural law; religious/ethical values and identity;
class, caste and gender; the sources of collective forms of violence.

Please send a short (approx. 150 words) abstract, along with a 1-2 page c.v.
and contact information as soon as possible, but no later than March 8, 2007

THE  <http://www.uwsp.edu/history/WIPCS/WIPCS1.htm> WISCONSIN INSTITUTE FOR
PEACE AND CONFLICT STUDIES 

 <http://www.uwsp.edu/history/WIPCS/WIPCS1.htm>
http://www.uwsp.edu/history/WIPCS/WIPCS1.htm

The Wisconsin Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies-founded in
1985-encourages and legitimizes teaching and research on the roots of
violence, and on national and global security issues including ecological
security and on factors necessary for a just global peace. Dedicated to
enabling scholars, teachers, and the public to improve and make more
sophisticated their understandings of war, peace, justice, and environmental
issues, the Institute does not prejudice judgment about these issues with a
particular ideology.
