Dear Friends

 

We welcome abstracts for an upcoming symposium, co-hosted by Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation (Deakin University) and the Institute for Culture and Society (University of Western Sydney). The symposium will comprise two days with a specific, though interconnected, focus. Prof. Anoop  Nayak, Professor of Social and Cultural Geography from Newcastle University, UK  is a guest speaker at this event. http://www.ncl.ac.uk/gps/staff/profile/anoop.nayak

 

Day one (Mon 14th Dec, 2015): Islamic Religiosity, Active Citizenship and Belonging. We  invite papers which address "the Muslim question" in pubIic policy debates, paying attention to the specific role of Islamic religiosity to performances of citizenship and belonging.

 

Day two (Tue 15th Dec, 2015): Cronulla Riots 10 Years On will mark the 10 year anniversary of the Cronulla riots by reflecting on just how significant the Cronulla Riots were, then and now, and whether -in a world preoccupied with the War on Terror- they remain a useful reference point for discussions of intercultural relations and multiculturalism in Australia.

 

Should you wish to present a paper, abstracts of 300 words should be emailed to Amelia.Johns@deakin.edu.au by July 31st, 2015.
