Dear Madam / Sir,
Maltepe University, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences is organizing the international undergraduate student congress titled “Migration in a Changing World” to be held in March 30-31, 2017.
Since the very cradle of civilization, Nature has been one of the secular concerns of poetry and philosophy. In a classic like Walden; or Life in the Woods (1854), Henry David Thoreau said: “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately”. The woods would make him whole again; solitude and Nature would reactivate a claritas of mind in him that had apparently been overshadowed by human commerce. About a century later, Ezra Pound sang in The Cantos: “Learn of the green world what can be thy place / In scaled invention or true artistry” (81/541), aware as he was of the fact that the world is a subtle ecology of vast dimensions that needs our attention and respect.
With apologies for cross-posting, we would like to announce that we are extending the deadline for abstract submission until March 6th. We will be responding to your submissions as soon as possible after this date.
