THE CONGRESS

 

“We are living in an age of both harmonization and of dissonance. Never have men had so many things in common – knowledge, points of reference, images, words, instruments and tools of all kinds. But this only increases their desire to assert their differences. ”

(Amin Maalouf, L’identità, 1998)

The notion of identity – be it personal, religious, ethnic or national – is important to interculturalists. It is through learning about our own and about the identities of other individuals and groups that we come to know what makes us similar and different.

In a global and multicultural world, individuals and organizations have increasingly multiple identities, asserting different identities in different circumstances and moments in their lives, according to the context and the people they are interacting with. Furthermore, intercultural interactions are ever more frequent, consequently identities are in continuous evolution, and often in conflict.

SIETAR ITALIA has chosen the subject of its 9th conference to be “Multicultural Identities: Understanding the Sense of Belonging”. The objective is to foster greater understanding of these developments and its implication for interculturalists in the areas of education, work, institutions and social matters.

With this conference, SIETAR ITALIA intends to showcase the latest research and explore the ambivalences, fluctuations and modalities which underpin multicultural identities. The conference wants to facilitate a debate amongst practitioners and will be a forum for networking and professional development.

During the conference, artistic projects and exhibitions will contribute to a further re ection on the theme of “Multicultural Identities”.

About Milan


Milan-Sietar.jpg

 

Home of Italy's stock exchange, an industrial powerhouse and the internationally accepted arbiter of taste in fashion and design, Milan is a seething metropolis. At times it can seem brash and soulless but beneath the veneer is a serious sense of history and place. The grand Gothic cathedral, the Duomo, lies at the geographical heart of this one-time Imperial Roman capital, and expresses the love of beauty and power that still drives the city today.
Art collections old and new, unparalleled shopping, one of Europe's biggest trade-fair complexes, sparkling nightlife, the prestige of opera at La Scala, the mark of Leonardo da Vinci's genius, a religious addiction to football, and endless opportunities to eat the best of Lombard and Italian food make Milan much more than the puritanically work-obsessed city it is often portrayed as.
