Sapienza University of Rome, the most ancient and largest Italian university, launches a call for papers for an international multidisciplinary conference to be held in Rome, on June 23-24, 2016. The topics of the meeting are related to the dynamics and policies of prejudice, and to the study of various phenomena such as racism, antisemitism, prejudice, xenophobia, discrimination, ethnic and national conflicts under historical, political, legal, economic and sociological perspectives. Papers presented at the conference will cover a wide range of matters such as, among others, the dynamics and policies that affected the relationships among states, populations, nationalities, ethnic groups, religious and linguistic minorities and contributed to define
the contemporary idea of prejudice in its distinct interpretations and models. The experience of the great multinational empires, nation-states in modern and contemporary Europe, religious persecutions, relationships between colonialism and local people, ethnic and national conflicts are all topics that could be deepened exploring different variations of prejudice, in order to better understand the way we look at and deal with others.
A formal application email should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and must include in a single document:
1) contact info
2) up to 300 word abstract
3) a short biographical statement.
The deadline for the submission of paper proposals is March 15, 2016.
