CFP: Mediterranean Cultures and Societies Knowledge, Health and Tourism (4-5 May: Faro, Portugal)

Call for Abstracts
Nowadays, the Mediterranean is affected by major changes. The social role of territories has changed: not only people are able to move and travel in a less expensive and easy way, but an increasing number of people can build their identity with multiple senses of belonging. These changes paved the way for new opportunities for multipolarity and also give new opportunities to territories historically destined to marginalization.
New coexistences can be built with an approach that can effectively go beyond the classical oppositions Europe/Mediterranean, North/South; West/East, etc., and facilitate the configurations of a new dimension of social space and daily life.
In the present context, characterized by conflicts and instability, the dialogue among cultures and societies of the Mediterranean, in order to promote pluralism, diversity and freedom, is undoubtedly more necessary. Indeed, the increasing globalization and the massive migration flows ensure that the exchanges among different civilizations becomes more intense.
The aim of this Conference is thus to increase awareness about the Mediterranean as a departure and arrival point for the construction of a pluralistic society, starting from a great variety of cultures, societies and ways of life. We also aim at disseminating the research results on such topics. On the basis of these considerations, the Conference is open to contributions that address the great questions concerning the Mediterranean, the cultures and the societies developed on its shores.
We welcome the submission of abstracts to the overall theme of the conference “Mediterranean Ways of Life” or to one of the topics below:
- Europe and the Mediterranean
- History, cultures and heritage
- Knowledge and education processes - Migrations and interculturality
- Political trends
- Mediterranean diet and well-being - Tourism and leisure
