Call for papers: Sixth Forum Young Graduates – Sechstes Forum für Jungakademiker/-innen – Sesto Forum per Neolaureati in Alto Adige
In 2007 I initiated the “Forum for Young Graduates in South Tyrol”. In an effort to promote an ongoing interdisciplinary and intercultural scientific dialogue, I have invited young graduates of diverse disciplines in 2019 for the sixth time to tackle the task of intensive investigation into “cultures in dialogue” as it relates to issues of international as well as regional relevance. The descriptive aim of the forum is to provide an overview of diverse aspects of the phenomenon of a multicultural society in South Tyrol. The constructive aspect of this endeavor it to pursue the following goal: To create moments of encounter, of intersubjective as well as interdisciplinary dialogue and lay the basis for a theoretical foundation of practical forms of dialogic problem analysis and problem solving. In an attempt to motivate dialogue across language barriers, a screening panel of international experts of diverse disciplines chose five contributions.
The OEW, the biggest NGO working in the field of international development in South Tyrol, has supported this endeavor with a price of 1,000 Euros which allows the graduate presenting the most meaningful and promising scientific contribution to publish it in the international publishing house “Peter Lang”. With the Forum for Young Graduates as a biennial event I also aim to institutionalize my collaboration with Young Scholars: It allows us to mingle the respective strengths, be it from the practical applicative approach to questions of integration and intercultural issues to the theoretical analysis of those issues from a research oriented perspective. The collaborative effort of participants at the forum 2007 gave birth to a book project entitled “Cultures in Dialogue”. This is the first of a series: We are now working on the 2019 edition of “Cultures in Dialogue” with contributors who were members or were presenters in the last conference and external experts taking on a role as consultants. In order to continue the discussion of those interdisciplinary themes, you are invited to contribute to this by joining the online forum: make suggestions, hand in contributions, simply get involved!
Moreover, in order to foster the ongoing debate, presenters at the forum, members of the screening panel, as well as other experts in the field, students and everybody who aims to get involved who are interested in joining the online forum – just follow the link and share your ideas, thoughts, and opinions.
