5th   International Conference

“Ohrid –Vodici, 2017”

- Ohrid, 17-19 January 2017




We are living in a “Runaway World” and “Liquid Modernity”. The Globalization is accelerating intensive increase of trans-global and supra-territorial connections in a last fifty years. From a perspective of social continuity and social changes, a last half-century of intensive globalization represent itself with important reconfiguration of geography, economy, state configuration, identity and knowledge, even that territoriality older forms of capital- state, nation and modern rationality greatly are still present in contemporary world. Issues of cultural diversity recognition and managing, intercultural communication have become more and more prominent in the public life, but until relatively recently, little had been researched and written on these issues, and even now, many states, institution, organizational managers etc., have no strategy or plan how to deal with managing of racial, ethnic, religious, or cultural diversity, with communication problems, even though most living places and workplaces are inhabited and staffed by people of diverse cultures and identities.

Indeed, in contrast to global economic interdependency and modernization, political, ethnic and religious trends often move in opposite direction. Ethnic separatist movements often divide people, making the promotion of national goals difficult. Religious fundamentalist movements often result from the rapid modernization processes that are perceived as eroding traditional cultural and religious beliefs, sometimes resulting in terrorism.

Our idea for this conference is based on collecting of scholars and expert that are making comprehensive and inter-disciplinary advance studies and researching on these trends, which may help to improve the understanding of both local aspiration and global processes.



We invite scholars, PhD and MA students, researchers and practitioners in anthropology/ethnology, political science, economy, tourism sciences, media, archaeology, history, art, history of art, philology, literature, folklore, ethnomusicology, architecture, museology, archiving, audio-visual arts, information sciences/ technologies, geography, sociology, psychology and all related fields to submit papers on any topic related to conference theme. Papers may reflect on a wide spectrum of issues related to cultural heritage, economy, tourism, media, cultural identities, terrorism, migration, refugees etc.
