Global Conference: Creating Cultural Synergies – Setting Intercultural Competence to Work in a Changing World
Globalization, having brought people in contact with one another at a yet unprecedented scale, has also posed a general challenge to traditionally upheld concepts of race, gender, nation and class. For those living in this rapidly changing cultural landscape, intercultural competence has become a core skill. The Global Conference in Salzburg aims to bring researchers and practitioners from interdisciplinary fields and settings together to discuss and share research, theory and best practices and foster a dialogue on issues related to setting intercultural theories to work.
Call for Papers:
The conference will have sessions for talks, posters and workshops. We welcome papers in the following categories related to the broader theme of intercultural studies:
- Interculturality and Leadership in Business
- Intercultural Competence and Empowerment
- Language, Politics and Intercultural Communication
- Intercultural Competence in Understanding Religion
It is expected that talks should not last longer than 20 minutes. Speakers whose papers are accepted have to submit a full paper (10 pages, 20.000 - 25.000 words) by 1st November 2011, for publication. Posters will focus on state-of-the-art research in intercultural competence.
Workshops (to be held in German and in English in parallel sessions) will concern themselves with the following topics:
- Intercultural Empowerment
- Intercultural Education
- Intercultural Coaching
Proposals (400-600 words) should be emailed by 15th April, 2011 to Dr. Birgit Breninger: birgit.breningersbg.ac.at
Please state on the proposal whether you want to give a talk, do a poster or hold a workshop.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
