The 18th IAICS International Conference Call for Submissions
Theme: Cultural Convergence and Conflict in Global Context: Rethinking the Phenomenon of Glocalization
June 8-11, 2012, Yuan Ze University, Chung-Li, Taiwan
The 21st century is the era of convergence and conflicts. We see the convergence of new communication technology and at the same time we see the conflicts emerged among different nations and cultures. War and disasters continue to bring threat to human lives and the sustainability of the globe. Facing this dilemma of human society, the theme of the 18th International Association for Intercultural Communication Studies (IAICS) Conference focuses on building a harmonious global community, in which to understand and develop intercultural knowledge and skills become most critical for a productive and successful life in the 21st century. The Conference aims to promote this goal through the contributions of scholars from different disciplines. The definition of Intercultural Communication could be broadened for scholars? conducting research of difference among cultures and to meet the goal of promoting equality and harmony among cultures. IAICS is now soliciting submissions for the International Conference on Intercultural Communication to be held on June 8-11, 2012 at Yuan Ze University in Taiwan. Papers reflecting diverse theoretical perspectives in both quantitative and qualitative methodological approaches are encouraged.
