Intercultural Studies for a Global Age: Principles, Methodology, Practice
April 12-14, 2018, University of Georgia, at Athens
Russell Special Collections Building, Room 285
300 S. Hull Street, Athens
This symposium explores the ways in which we can remap and reorganize a transdisciplinary field of intercultural studies that would go beyond the current field of cultural studies while preserving and reorienting some of its valuable insights within a global reference frame. Topics include: current concepts of culture operative in various academic and nonacademic fields; the main guiding principles of intercultural studies and practices and their cognitive and ethical implications; the mutual feedback loops between intercultural studies, comparative literature, translation studies, and other relevant fields in the humanities, arts and social sciences; the development of new institutional and curricular frameworks as well as new information and communication technological platforms for intercultural studies.
