More than an excellent, absurdist 2001 film set during the Bosnian War, "No Man's Land" is an idiom overused to inutility. It was a cliché long before I was born and learned what it meant or what a cliché was.

8th Global Conference: Interculturalism, Meaning and Identity

Saturday 14th March – Monday 16th March 2015, Lisbon, Portugal

Call for Presentations:
Interculturalism stands at the interface between the individual, local groups, societies and cultures. These compete, conflict, co-exist and trigger reactions and responses on a number of levels including the social, the economic, the political and the personal. These are reinforced through language, the media, cultural events, social institutions and migration policies. Amidst all these dynamic and static forms of interaction, identities are built and consolidated.

1st Global Conference: Happiness

Saturday 14th March – Monday 16th March 2015
Lisbon, Portugal

Call for Presentations:
This inter- and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to explore one of the most basic and universal human desires: happiness. Aristotle spoke of happiness as the only phenomenon which is an end in itself. The nation of Bhutan has established a system that attempts to quantify happiness: the Gross National Happiness Index. Each culture and age interprets the nature of happiness differently, and every art form of every era finds different ways to express and capture it.

7th Global Conference: Hope

Saturday 14th March – Monday 16th March 2015
Lisbon, Portugal

Call for Presentations:
When Pandora's box emptied all of its ills that would plague the world, one small winged creature still remained: HOPE. This project inquires into the nature of this gift. Is hope, in fact, a good, encouraging us to do or be good? Or is it an evil; an illusion, perhaps an impossible fantasy? How does hope manifest itself in the world, in language, literature, and the arts? How should hope be encouraged? Is hope individual or collective in nature? Or both? What does hope contribute to individual or national identity?
