Anticus Multicultural Association, in conjunction with its partners in Romania, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan.
The conference will take place between October 1st and October 31st, 2021.
We are committed to standing against COVID-19 by expanding this conference to Central Asia. After the last event held in the virtual space, this time, we are bringing in a series of hybrid sessions streamed from Romania, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan. The participants may choose either In-Person Presentation or Virtual Presentation through Zoom online video conferencing. The full article will be published and indexed in the AKECH Journal.
The theme of our conference is „The Road Back to Normality.” We aim to promote interactions, motivate discussions, and encourage collaborations among the global community on subjects relevant to the recovery of the indigenous languages, traditions, and cultures.
We organize the Kurultai in the spirit of communion, as we live imperative times. International scholars, independent researchers, artists, and activists should fear the potential disappearance of cultures, languages, traditions, and memories. They should engage in shared dialogues towards generating a world-changing impact and a better future. The future should be rooted in a better understanding of history and a multitudinous cultural present.
At AKECH 2021, we agree that many problems affecting cultural heritage require insights and problem-solving skills from many disciplines, perspectives, and practices. We realize that no overall theme can accommodate the great variety of interests around the issues relating to endangered cultural heritage.
Therefore, we invite contributions that address current cultural heritage issues from a great variety of disciplines in the arts, humanities, and sciences. We encourage the lovers of literature, language, anthropology, psychology, history, biology, human geography, film studies, art, computer science, political science, physics, and all other areas of study, to feel welcome in attending this conference and in submitting a seminar proposal or a paper.
While the plenary sessions will be held in English, panels accept either English, Romanian, Tatar, or its related Central Asian languages.
We welcome proposals for (1) entire panels and (2) individual papers.
