CFP Conference: Changes and Challenges in Glocalizing Russia and Northeast Asia

Deadline: August 2, 2013

Call for Papers: Changes and Challenges in Glocalizing Russia and
Northeast Asia
October 18-19, 2013

Institute of Russian Studies, Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, Seoul,

In the age of glocalization, we cross borders in our daily life. Those
borders are not only borderlines between countries, but also social,
glocalized society. For examples of these borders, one can find
borderlines between central and regional authorities, towns,
countryside, immigrants and natives, as well as borderlines between
different social, political, cultural, and religious groups. How did
the process of globalization break down these various borders within
Russia and also among various countries of Northeast Asia? To what
extent did the glocalization become everyday experiences for local
communities in these regions? What are the changes in social,
political, economic and cultural phenomena that have appeared in these
regions during the process of glocalization? What are the tensions and
conflicts that glocalization has promoted in these regions? By
identifying the problems and effects of glocalization in this
conference, we hope that this conference will contribute to raising
mutual understanding of these regions and also promoting close future
ties among countries in these regions. Some examples of possible
topics for presentation in the conference include but are NOT limited
to the following possible topics:

-Place and identity
-Memory and glocalism
-Cultural diversity, multiculturalism
-Everyday experiences
-Local mass media/communication
-Integration of local market into global market
-Global migrations
