02 – 04 December 2020, Tetovo / Skopje, North Macedonia
Center for Balkan Cooperation LOJA in cooperation with five leading universities: South East European University, University of Tetovo, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, Goce Delchev University, and St. Kliment Ohridski University in North Macedonia in the frames of the Civil Peace Service program and as part of the project “Anchoring Multi-ethnic Youth Work in University Curricula for Future Teachers” are announcing a Call for Papers for the International Scientific Conference. The topic of the Conference is: “Multicultural Education”.
The aim of the conference is to explore the ways in which multicultural education works in other contexts, to create a platform where recent developments among scholars can be discussed and to give a push to academics, researchers, practitioners, and students to share their best practices and lessons learned on the topic.
This conference seeks to explore the different paths related to the promotion of the philosophy of social justice, equity, and inclusion, explore the practices and experiences on multicultural education. It celebrates cultural and ethnic diversity as a national strength that enriches the fabric of society. It is meant to facilitate a multi-disciplinary debate and platform among scholars that examine recent developments. We encourage papers that also concentrate on best practices and lessons learned during this process of work.
The importance of the conference also stems from the fact that recently there has been a significant backlash about the ideals of multiculturalism and social justice across the world. In the past few years, we are witnessing the rise of nationalistic, isolationist, and xenophobic discourses as well as leaders coming to power. We, therefore, encourage you to address these new currents but also emphasize the importance of staying committed to the values of diversity and social justice as means of fighting the wave of xenophobia, both politically and culturally.
Due to the pandemic outbreak COVID-19, LOJA takes into consideration two alternatives of realizing the conference, onsite and online. Thus, if the situation will get back to normal we will continue with an onsite conference, taking place in Tetovo and Skopje, otherwise, the conference will be held via online platforms.
Authors are invited to submit papers on any subject related to and within the scope of the Conference topic. Submissions from academics, researchers, and practitioners at any stage of their career, including Ph.D. and MA students, will be accepted.
