It has been argued that the contemporary moment witnesses a crisis in Enlightenment models
of multiculturalism and integration, as well as the dangerous polarization of ethnic and religious
identities in the context of the so-called “war on terror.” In such a situation, new thinking about

invited on the subject of recognition in any area of the human and social sciences, with a
particular focus on the dynamics of cultural encounter.

Proposals of 500 words should be sent to:
Deadline: January 11, 2008
