Meeting Description:

The 4th ENIEDA Conference on Linguistic and Intercultural Education
organised by

The European Network for Intercultural Education Activities (ENIEDA) in cooperation with
The Faculty of Culture and Society, Malmö University, Sweden &
The Teacher Training College, Vršac, Serbia

Negotiating and Constructing European Identities across Languages and Cultures
Vršac, Serbia, 29 September-1 October 2011

In an effort to consolidate and expand further its presence in the region of South-East Europe, and following a series of successful events that have already promoted ENIEDA and its achievements in the area of linguistic and intercultural education, we are pleased to announce that the 4th ENIEDA conference is poised to intensify and diversify these activities in both theory and practice.

Drawing on the pluralistic ethos expressed in the Council of Europe's 1982 Recommendations to the member states concerning language policy – ‘that the rich heritage of diverse languages and cultures in Europe is a valuable common resource to be protected and developed, and that a major educational effort is needed to convert that diversity from a barrier to communication into a source of mutual enrichment and understanding’ – our main ambition is to strengthen the links between the north and the south, as well as the east and the west of Europe in order to identify new collaborative and networking opportunities, both of which will inform future directions of research and development. These links are to be further enhanced through the activities of ENIEDA members and associates, by being professionally active across Europe and establishing stronger and long-lasting relationships and collaborations.

The conference invites interdisciplinary approaches to linguistic and cross-cultural education – related topics concerning the current dynamics in Europe between old and new trends, local and global tendencies, progressive and conservative views, stabilisation and destabilisation patterns, national and European identities. A special focus is on exploring the communication strategies and behaviour patterns by means of which local/regional/national identities are being negotiated and constructed across cultural borders. Even though our aim is to focus primarily on the European context, we always welcome participants representing other geographical and geo-political regions and their contributions as well.

The following keynote speakers confirmed their participation:

Professor Cornelia Ilie, Malmö University, Sweden
Ms. Maguelonne Déjeant-Pons, Head of the Cultural Heritage, Landscape and
Spatial Planning Division of the Council of Europe
Professor Srikant Sarangi, Cardiff University, UK
Dr Teodora Popescu, University of Alba Iulia, Romania

The conference venue is Hotel Srbija, Vršac, Serbia (www.hotelsrbija.rs), and additional information about travel arrangements, accommodation, registration and other practical details will shortly be posted on the conference website (http://www.enieda.eu/ENIEDA4).

The participation fee is 70 euro. The reduced fee of 50 euro will apply to participants from countries with severe monetary restrictions. The student fee is 25 euro (a valid student ID is required to qualify). The participation fee includes the conference pack, coffee break refreshments and the welcome drinks reception.
