5th Global Conference
Pluralism, Inclusion and Citizenship

Friday 6th November - Sunday 8th November 2009
Salzburg, Austria

Call for Papers
With this multi-disciplinary project we seek to
explore the new developments and changes of the
idea of pluralism and their implications
for social and political processes of inclusion
and citizenship in contemporary societies. The
project will also assess the larger context
of major world transformations, such as new forms
of migration and the massive movements of people
across the globe, as well as the impact of
the multiple dynamics of globalisation on
rootedness and membership (including their
tensions and conflicts) and on a general sense of
social acceptance and recognition. Looking to
encourage innovative trans-disciplinary dialogues,
we warmly welcome papers from all
disciplines, professions and vocations which
struggle to understand what it means for people,
the world over, to be citizens in rapidly changing
national, social and political landscapes.

In particular papers, workshops and presentations
are invited on any of the following themes:

1. Challenging Old Concepts of Citizen and Alien
~ Who is a citizen and who is an alien, a foreigner?
~ The new value of political pluralism and
cultural multiplicity; breaking with homogeneity
and sameness
~ What is the place of difference and alterity in
defining membership and citizenship?
~ How to account for political membership and
~ Making sense of transformations and their
effects over citizenship identity and membership
~ Othering, marginalising, excluding, stygmatising

2. Nations, Fluid Boundaries and Citizenship
~ What does it mean, today, to belong to a nation?
~ New migrants, new migratory flows and massive
movements from peripheral to central countries
~ Resurgence of the local and the diminishing
importance of the national
~ Are we living post-national realities?
~ What is the place of economic and cultural
claims in today's forms of political membership?
~ Assimilation, integration, adaptation and other
forms of placing the responsibility of change on

3. Institutions, Organizations and Social Movements
~ Evaluating the promises and institutions of
post-national governing
~ What happened to the rights of migrants and
displaced peoples?
~ Political battles over globalization and the
forging of global citizenship
~ Social movements, new rebellion and alternative
global politics
~ Trans-national connections that
escape institutional and political control
~ New forms of global exclusion

4. Persons, Personhood and the Inter-Personal
~ De-nationalising citizenship and the making of a
global citizen
~ Tensions, contradictions and conflicts of
citizenship formations and political membership
~ New sources and forms of political
participation; new localism, parochialism and
~ Bonds of care across boundaries of inequality
and exclusion, ideologies and religions, politics
and power, nations and geography
~ Thinking and acting with foreigners and migrants
in mind
~ Citizens acknowledging the fundamental role of
migrants; making migration personal and interpersonal

5. Media and Artistic Representations
~ The role of new and old media in the
construction of political membership, of nations
and citizens
~ Production and reproduction of political and
citizen typing and stereotyping
~ The contested space of representing politics,
national identity and membership
~ Art, media and how to challenge the rigid and
impenetrable constructions of political culture
~ Living, being and exercising membership through art
~ Political life imitating art and fiction

6. Transnational Political Interlacing of
Contemporary Life
~ What is shared from political cultures? How are
political cultures shared? Who has access to the
sharing of political cultures?
~ Human rights, migration and massive
displacements of people
~ Living in a context with the political markers
of a different context:
Is that political trans-culturalism?
~ Languages, idioms and new emerging forms of
wanting to bridge the 'invisible' divide between
political cultures
~ Symbols and significations that connect people
to places other than 'their own'
~ Politics, identity and belonging by choice

7. New Concepts, New Forms of Inclusion
~ Recognition and respect without marginality
~ An ethics for social and political relations in
a new millennium
~ What to do with historically old concepts like
tolerance, acceptance and hospitality?
~ Should not we all be strangers? Should not we
all be foreigners?
~ Is there any use for cosmopolitanism these days?
~ Embracing the alien within the citizen; building
fluid boundaries of membership and political
