Location: , United Kingdom
Category: Social Sciences and Humanities
Start Date: 07-06-2012 Last Day: 07-09-2012 Deadline for abstracts: 11-21-2011
As an expression of culture, a form of intangible heritage, a signifier of place, and a marker of moments, music provides an important and emotive narrative for tourists. Indeed, it is increasingly difficult to imagine tourism ‘in silence’, outside of the scores and songs which accompany and punctuate journeys. From touristic performances of traditional dance, pilgrimages to the homes and graves of composers and singers, impromptu street entertainments, tours to concerts, attending festivals, to the sounds of the car radio, the travelling with ipods and the ‘muzak’ of hotel lifts, music can both activate and shape the journey, and passively…

The particular tradition of dream questing at sacred sites is well documented in the ancient Greek tradition of…
State-Society Relations in the Arab Gulf Region: Religion, Intellectuals and New Media

State-Society Relations in the Arab Gulf Region: Religion, Intellectuals and New Media

Location: , United Kingdom
Category: Social Sciences and Humanities
Start Date: 07-11-2012 Last Day: 07-14-2012
Abstract The conventional analyses of society-state relations in the Arabian Gulf region easily lend themselves to the erroneous thesis that countries in this region are devoid of the modern political currents and counter currents that have shaped most contemporary societies in the world. For some analysts, the Arabian Gulf states are nothing but an extension of the “oriental despotic” cultural logic according to which the state is always perceived as strong, authoritarian and coercive, ruling through petro-economic means over a passive and weak society. For others, the state-society relation has been collapsed into a form of tribal nationalism in which…

At a time when the economic development and the (negative) consequences of globalization are causing the gap between rich and poor rather to widen than to shrink poverty and social inequality have gained public attention again. While movements like ATTAC and OCCUPY highlight the relevance of social inequality and poverty due to their material aspect as existential issues of a developed civil society, it is for other groups to deal with the cultural aspect of the issue and to discuss the perception of poverty by modern society as a case of cultural encounter.

Start Date: 09-07-2012 Last Day: 09-10-2012 Deadline for abstracts: 03-15-2012
Telos in Europe: The L'Aquila Conference Conference Theme Recent developments appear to end the "end of history" and foreshadow instead the end of the West. After 1989, many expected a gradual convergence toward Western models of liberal market democracy. But Western responses to 9/11 and the 2007-8 transatlantic "credit crunch" have exposed the limits of U.S. international primacy and accelerated the global shift of power from West to East and North to South-as evinced by the rise of China, India, and other emerging markets. Politically and economically, that shift seems to portend the emergence of a post-American and perhaps even…
