WEDNESDAY, MAY 25, 2022 – FRIDAY, MAY 27, 2022
The purpose of this international conference is to encourage a multi and transdisciplinary discussion on the challenge of cultivating inclusive civic and social spaces at a moment when the difference is ubiquitously threatened by exclusionary ethno-nationalisms, the construction of material and symbolic walls of separation, spaces of conflict, and violence-laden representations of the essential alienness of cultural, political, and religious others.
The conference will critically examine this problem in various socio-spatial and temporal contexts and broaden the scope to reflect on the necessary rethinking/reinvention/reconstitution of cosmopolitan space(s) challenged by social conflicts, war, and/or mass violence.
