Considering that in the last decades there has been abundant and wide discussions on subjects about culture, about the cultural meaning of historical and social processes, and inter-cultural and multi-cultural problems from the most diverse theoretical positions such as universalist formalist, relativist, post-modernist, communitarianist, etc. Within the most diverse theoretical fields and disciplines (Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology, Political Theory, History, Law, etc.), the congress intends to reflect on different aspects evoked by the “culturalist turn”.
The first thematic area approaches metatheoretical revision under the headline: "Culture and Normativity".
A second thematic area is called: "The New Social and Cultural Movements".
A third one is engaged in the discussion of the concepts that are somehow structuring the current debate. Under the title "Interculturality, pluriculturality, Multiculturality".
Finally, there will be a space for the discussion of programatic outlooks pointing to the future, under a title that is not attempting to prejudge the outcome of the discussion, rather it is thought as an invitation to think and discuss: "Is there a Cultural Universalism?"
