Changes and Challenges in Glocalizing Russia and Northeast Asia.

In the age of glocalization, we cross borders in our daily life. Those borders are not only borderlines between countries, but also social, cultural, psychological and mental borders existing in today’s glocalized society. For examples of these borders, one can find borderlines between central and regional authorities, towns, countryside, immigrants and natives, as well as borderlines between different social, political, cultural, and religious groups. How did the process of globalization break down these various borders within Russia and also among various countries of Northeast Asia? To what extent did the glocalization become everyday experiences for local communities in these regions? What are the changes in social, political, economic and cultural phenomena that have appeared in these regions during the process of glocalization? What are the tensions and conflicts that glocalization has promoted in these regions? By identifying the problems and effects of glocalization in this conference, we hope that this conference will contribute to raising mutual understanding of these regions and also promoting close future ties among countries in these regions. Some examples of possible topics for presentation in the conference include but are not limited to the following:
Place and identity
Memory and glocalism
Cultural diversity, multiculturalism
Local mass media/communication
Integration of local market into global market
