The HUM-665 Research Group “Research and Evaluation in Intercultural Education” would like to warmly welcome you to the 8th International Conference on Intercultural Education and 1st International Conference on Transcultural Health: THE VALUE OF EDUCATION AND HEALTH FOR A TRANSCULTURAL AND GLOBAL WORLD, which will be held in Almeria from 20 to 22 June 2018.
This 8th edition of the conference will intend to generate a space of reflection and discussion in order to address the challenges with which institutional, academic, educational and healthcare communities will need to confront. In an ever more globalized world , new context of war, migrations, refugee flows, claims of national boundaries, construction of exlusionany and marginalising identities are emerging. In view of all this, this conference aims, on the one hand, to create a reflection space about theoretical and philosophical considerations related the consequences of this situation on health and education and how can them, from a transcultural and global perspective, contribute to front this exclusion and inequalities processes; and, on the other hand, to generate knowledge and mainstream a inter or transcultural perspective in the fields of study, in order to move forward to a critical and intercultural society, conscious of the moment it is living.
After last year success, the range of options available to participate in the meeting, both in English and Spanish, include: in-person and online attendance. In-person attendance will include plenary talks, symposiums, meeting with scholars, oral presentations and poster presentations. For those who cannot attend, online attendance will also ensure the access to all contributions.
We encourage you to take an active role in the conference, and to submit proposals for the different sessions of the scientific program.
We are sure that Almeria will provide, once more, a magnificent setting to a high quality meeting, with more than one thousand years of cultural melting pot, reflected in its architecture and arts, in a coastal Mediterranean environment.
We will be delighted to welcome you to Almeria in 2018.
