Third World Culturelink Conference issues a call for papers

The Culturelink Network is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, the network is organizing the Third World Culturelink Conference under the title “Networks—The Evolving Aspects of Culture in the 21st Century,” to be held from November 13 to 15, 2009, in Zagreb, Croatia.

The conference is designed to bring together Culturelink Network members, researchers, professionals, and many others who perceive networking as one of the most intriguing phenomena in contemporary culture.

The Third World Culturelink Conference will investigate the role and relevance that cultural networks hold for cultural development. A retrospective overview of cultural networks phenomena in the past 20 years will form the basis of a debate on new cultural networking perspectives in the 21st century. Special consideration will be given to issues regarding the position of cultural networks within cultural policy structures, as well as the effective use of innovative ICT and networking applications that significantly develop the practices and scope of cultural network activities. The event will include discussions on the promotion and affirmation of cultural diversity and intercultural communication through networking processes and will closely look at case studies from all around the world, providing comparative examples and global experiences.
