The Deakin University Research Priority Area in Citizenship and Globalisation calls for papers addressing the broad theme of cultural citizenship. The Conference will be held on the Burwood (Melbourne) Campus of Deakin University from 5-7 December 2002.
In an era of rapid cultural globalisation, and increasing local resistance, this timely conference examines the 'cultural dimension' of citizenship - both national, and global. The conference addresses a range of key questions for researchers, policy-makers and community workers around issues of cultural citizenship, identity, political participation and heritage.
Conference sub-themes are:
Theorising Cultural Citizenship
Globalisation, cultural identity and cultural heritage
Is multiculturalism dead? Is cultural citizenship a more useful concept?
Ethnic minorities and ethno-nationalism
Cultural maintenance in diasporic communities
Human rights and cultural rights
Role of civil society and NGOs
Cultural citizenship and democracy
Cultural and social rights of refugees
Implications for policy-makers
The conference will have a mix of plenary sessions with invited papers, and open sessions. The conference organisers welcome papers from academics, researchers, activists, community groups and policy makers. Refereed conference proceedings will be published.
Please send proposals for 20-25 minute papers, with a 200-word abstract by 12 July 2002.
