Culture, Values and Justice Conference 2014

This conference creates and facilitates new research openings as well as new cooperation in the interdisciplinary field of comparative cultural studies by bringing together scholars from altogether 14 different countries and universities worldwide to discuss and debate on a range of topics related to culture, values and justice. The themes of the conference draw increased international attention, as the issues of cultural encounters are increasingly addressed in terms of values and justice. This trend is related to growing awareness of the universal social problems, including uneven income distribution, increasing health gaps between rich and poor, constant gender inequality, and the ideological roots of environmental problems. These are among the issues being discussed in this conference.

The keynote speaker is Professor Kisor Chakrabarti (USA), a distinguished expert in classical Indian philosophy and comparative cultural studies.

The program of the conference can be found here.

The conference is organized by Faculty of Philosophy and the Intercultural Phenomena in Time (IPIT)research team, in cooperation with The Society for Indian Philosophy and Religion and Institute of Cross Cultural Studies and Academic Exchange.

The conference is open for public.
