Reframing multiculturalism for the 21st century’s realities
Citizens of multicultural nations often struggle to realize and establish an identity that bridges both their complex past with the uniqueness of their multiple cultural connections as well as their (trans)national belongings. Indeed, in many cases, multiculturalism, as a political structure based on institutionalizing social justice and social equality in many nations is being challenged, not merely because such politics for equality and social justice have failed to establish their main objectives, but because the ideal of such politics must not disregard the human capacity to resist, negotiate or embrace.
The Centre for Citizenship and Globalization, and the Audiovisual Media Lab for the study of Cultures and Societies at the University of Ottawa, will host an International Symposium on the topic of Multiculturalism at the University of Ottawa on November 21st and 22nd 2011.
This forthcoming international workshop on multiculturalism is a follow up from the symposium that took place at Deakin University in November 2010. The focus of this edition is to outline the “challenges” for and “reframing” of multiculturalism for the 21st Century’s realities and global knowledge-economy. There are confirmed participants and speakers from Canada, Columbia, Uruguay, Australia, New Zealand, France, the Netherlands, Croatia, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
