Call for Papers
Theme: Social Development of Humanity from the Perspective of Multiculturalism
Type: International Conference
Institution: Nanchang University
Location: Nanchang (China)
Since the birth of culture in the world of human existence, there
have always been many types of classifications, and differences
between one culture and another. Even in the same historical era,
different cultural types emerged in different geographical areas.
Multiculturalism is important for different cultural carriers to
characterize their own people, country or nation. Although different
cultural types have their own characteristics, there have been always
cultural exchange and cooperation in the process of cultural
development. No culture can be isolated from other cultures, because
diverse cultures are interacting and cooperating within a large
system of the world culture. The process of cultural development is
open and dynamic, without communication and cooperation with external
cultures, it is impossible to achieve one’s own growth.
The history of the development of world culture is the history of
exchanges among different and diverse cultures. With the acceleration
and deepening of economic globalization, the popularization and
utilization of modern science and technology has enabled cultural
exchanges to be much broader and more frequent. The rapid development
of the Internet has made peoples around the world either passively or
actively engage in the process of globalization in various aspects.
There exists not only a communication between traditional and
advanced cultures, but also the conflict between local and foreign
cultures. We are facing many challenges in such a process, especially
in the human social development. There might be conflicts when
cultures and peoples encounter one another partly due to their
differences. However, this could be also a learning process to
understand each other better. Thus it is necessary to examine the
issue of human social development from a multicultural perspective.
The conference will focus the following sub-themes:
1. Cultural exchanges and construction of a community of shared human
2. Justice and human social development
3. Non-traditional security and international cooperation
4. Global ecological crisis and responses and strategies
5. Multiculturalism and globalization
6. China's poverty reduction and world anti-poverty
