The International Academic Forum (IAFOR), in conjunction with its global university and institutional partners, is proud to announce The IAFOR International Conference on the Arts & Humanities – Hawaii 2017 (IICAHHawaii2017), part of the Hawaiian Conference Series 2017.
This international and interdisciplinary conference will act as a centre for academics, practitioners and professionals to discuss new research in the arts and humanities. IICAHHawaii2017 will create opportunities for the internationalisation of higher education and sharing of expertise. We invite professionals from all corners of the world to develop policies, exchange ideas, and promote new partnerships with organisations and peers.
The IAFOR International Conference on the Arts & Humanities – Hawaii 2017 (IICAHHawaii2017) will be held alongside The IAFOR International Conference on the Social Sciences – Hawaii 2017 (IICSSHawaii2017), and The IAFOR International Conference on Sustainability, Energy & the Environment – Hawaii 2017 (IICSEEHawaii2017) as part of the same event. Registration for any one of these conferences permits attendance in all three within the event.
Conference Theme: “East Meets West: Innovation and Discovery”
Global movements of people and ideas have made possible meetings of East and West that have brought together peoples whose roots lie in different nations, languages, religions, and cultures.
These meetings of different cultures, literal and metaphorical, have generated contrasts ranging from outright confrontation to some amazingly creative responses. They have inspired art and architectural beauty, generated new perspectives, expanded trade exchanges, and stimulated technological innovation and scientific discovery. They have also been directly and indirectly responsible for suffering and destruction on the one hand, but for literature, music, food, friendships, and love on the other.
From the high end of literature, music, art, and fashion, to simple improvements in communications and understanding, all of which are necessary for the progress of human civilizations, this conference has as its theme the historical, geographical and cultural meetings of East and West,
In conjunction with our global partners, including the University of Hawaii at Manoa, we look forward to extending a warm welcome to you in 2017.
