« Dynamics of communication: new ways and actors » edited by Biserka Cvjetičanin – 2006

This collection is the fruit of the World Culturelink Conference held in Zagreb in June 2005. The scientific coordinator for the publication, Biserka Cvjetičanin, notes that the testimonials and analyses in the volume “reflect the social and cultural transformations characterizing the period between the two World Culturelink Conferences, the first of which was held in 1995.” Through the 50-odd contributions, the study analyzes changes in various fields of culture and communication and their related practices against the backdrop of multiple globalizations, especially those spurred on by New Information and Communication Technology (NICT).The document, which is divided into five parts, presents a series of texts from varied disciplinary and geographical realms. The third section explores links between issues in communication, citizenship, multilingualism, multiculturalism, and interculturality in relation to cultural diversity, its preservation and promotion, and UNESCO’s role in taking its defence.
