The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) in conjunction with its global partners is proud to announce the Inaugural Europen Conference on the Arts and Humanities (ECAH) 2013, to be held from July 18-21 2013, at the Thistle Brighton, Brighton, UK.
Conference Theme 2013: Connectedness, Identity and Alienation
A combined total of more than 900 academics from over fifty different nations have attended the Asian Conference on Arts and Humanities since it was launched in 2010. As the conference enters its fourth year it aims to build on the strengths and successes of the previous two years by offering a true celebration of interdisciplinary study in a stimulating scholarly environment, and in the wonderfully rich physical and cultural environment of Japan. This international conference will again bring together university scholars working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas and forge working relationships with each other over a stimulating, challenging, and fun long weekend.
The 2013 conference theme is "Connectedness, Identity and Alienation" and the organizers hope that this will again encourage and inspire exciting new research avenues, and further encourage academic and personal encounters and exchanges across national, religious, cultural and disciplinary divides. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of inter/disciplinary and theoretical perspectives.
Authors of accepted abstracts will have the opportunity of publishing their associated paper in the official conference proceedings, and a selection of papers will be considered for inclusion in the internationally peer-reviewed IAFOR Journal of Arts and Humanities.
