CFP: Fourteenth International Diversity in Organizations, Communities and Nations Conference
Location: Vienna, Austria
Date: 9-11 July 2014

Conference Focus:
This Conference has a history of bringing together scholarly, government and practice-based participants with an interest in the issues of diversity and community. The Conference examines the concept of diversity as a positive aspect of a global world and globalized society. Diversity is in many ways reflective of our present world order, but there are ways of taking this further without necessary engendering its alternatives: racism, conflict, discrimination and inequity. Diversity as a mode of social existence can be projected in ways that deepen the range of human experience. The Conference will seek to explore the full range of what diversity means and explore modes of diversity in real-life situations of living together in community. The Conference supports a move away from simple affirmations that ‘diversity is good’ to a much more nuanced account of the effects and uses of diversity on differently situated communities in the context of our current epoch of globalization.
We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia. Our conference themes include: Identity and Belonging, Education and Learning in a World of Differences, Organizational Diversity, and Community Diversity and Governance.
