Conference Theme and Streams

Conference Theme: "Power"

Power as a commodity has challenged the minds of social scientists and philosophers while its exercise has always fascinated historians. From classical thinkers' works such as Aristotle's Politka or Machiavelli's Il Principe through modern figures who manipulate power in the media, like Silvio Berlusconi or Rupert Murdoch, to the vast networks that support major heads of state, power has been a necessity to some or like an aphrodisiac to others. The dynamics of power and its associations with wealth and status now shape the contemporary world more visibly than ever. It is a research challenge to all fields of the social sciences to offer some explanation of its magnetism and its mechanisms. We expect this theme to excite a number of stimulating research paths, and look forward to their outcomes as we gather in Osaka in 2015.

The organizers encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of inter/disciplinary and theoretical perspectives. Submissions are organized into the following thematic streams:

Streams:
Anthropology, Archaeology, Cultural Studies and Humanities
Cognitive and Behavioral Sciences
Computational Social Science
Cultural and Media Studies
Economics and Management
Education and Social Welfare
Demography, Human Geography and Population Studies
Ethnicity, Difference, Identity
Globalization and Internationalization
Immigration, Refugees, Race, Nation
Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Gender
International Relations and Human Rights
Journalism and Communications
Linguistics
Natural, Environmental and Health Sciences
Politics, Philosophy, Ethics, Consciousness
Politics, Public Policy, Law and Criminology
Psychology and Social Psychology
Research Methodologies, Quantitative and Qualitative
Social History
Social Work
Sociology
Sustainability
Teaching and Learning
Technology and Applied Sciences
Urban Studies

Conference Theme and Streams

Conference Theme: "Integrated Practices: Creating Experiences to Enhance Learning"
Educators face continually shifting demands from all directions: students, administrators, and society. With some of these demands, teachers and learners may feel greater isolation and pressure. These trends may be seen in the disaggregation of the university or in frequent testing of discrete outcomes for analysis and accountability purposes. In the face of these developments, it is more important than ever to reflect on learning as experience, and to bring theory, research, and craft to bear on creating those experiences.

Dewey wrote that, "the central problem of education based on experience is to select the kind of present experiences that live fruitfully and creatively in future experiences". So, how does research in second language acquisition and teacher expertise tell us which experiences live on in communication? How do learning theories direct us to view the connections between experiences? And, how can application of technology both become normalized and create vivid experiences?

Finally, we need personal and professional integration. Coming together to share best practices in these twinned conferences is a chance to share and develop ways to better integrate our institutions, teachers, and most of all the experiences of the learners in a coherent practice of education.

The organizers encourage submissions that approach the unifying subject of the conference theme from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of inter/disciplinary and theoretical perspectives. Submissions will be organized into the following streams:

Streams
Alternative assessment
Anxiety and Motivation
Bilingualism
Blended learning
Constructivist approaches
Conversation analysis
Cross-Cultural Communication
Design
First language acquisition
Gaming and Simulation
Individual differences
Innovative language teaching and learning methodologies
Interactional competence

15th International Conference on Diversity in Organizations, Communities and Nations

THE FIFTHTEENTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DIVERSITY IN ORGANIZATIONS, COMMUNITIES, AND NATIONS

Hong Kong SAR, China
University of Hong Kong
15-17 July 2015

Dear Delegate,

Proposals for paper presentations, workshops, posters, or colloquia are invited for the Fifteenth International Conference on Diversity in Organizations, Communities, and Nations being held at the University of Hong Kong, in Hong Kong SAR, China from 15-17 July 2015. We welcome proposals from a variety of disciplines and perspectives that will contribute to the conference discourse. We also encourage faculty and research students to submit joint proposals for paper presentations or colloquia

The International Advisory Board is also pleased to announce the Call For Submissions to the peer-reviewed Diversity in Organizations, Communities, and Nations Collection of Journals. Proposals are invited that address issues of diversity through one of the following categories:

Theme 1: Identity and Belonging
Theme 2: Education and Learning in a World of Differences
Theme 3: Organizational Diversity
Theme 4: Community Diversity and Governance

In addition to the annual themes, the conference will address the special focus - Affirming Diversity for Social and Educational Justice - through keynote speakers, garden sessions, workshops, and parallel sessions that examine the following topic:

AFFIRMING DIVERSITY FOR SOCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL JUSTICE
Modern diasporic movements of populations both across and within countries impact upon social diversity at multiple levels of scale. Responses to social change due to difference, whether related to culture, language, gender, race/ethnicity, class, ability, or sexual orientation can be conservative and at times detrimentally reactionary in nature. This conference focus, whilst acknowledging the challenges of diversity to local communities, seeks to disrupt discourses and narratives that can be seen to enable or accept inequity, and examine the potential benefits of diversity to all members of society. This conference focus thus explores the various ways global issues impact upon local contexts. Questions addressed will include:

- How can changes to a country's demographic profile as a result of global population movements be viewed as adding value to a society's social and cultural resources?
- How can the inclusion of diverse learners enhance the learning of all across educational contexts?
- How can inclusive leadership for marginalized groups enhance organizational capacity-building?

Presenters may also choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed Diversity Collection of Journals. If you are unable to attend the conference, you may still become a member of the community and submit your article for peer review and possible publication, upload an online presentation, and enjoy subscriber access to the journal.

Proposals for in-person presentations should be submitted by 7 MAY 2015 (title and short abstract). Proposals submitted after this day will be accommodated in non-themed sessions at the conference or are eligible for community membership registrations (no attendance at conference required with community membership presentations).

Conference Theme and Streams

Conference Theme: "Integrated Practices: Creating Experiences to Enhance Learning"
Educators face continually shifting demands from all directions: students, administrators, and society. With some of these demands, teachers and learners may feel greater isolation and pressure. These trends may be seen in the disaggregation of the university or in frequent testing of discrete outcomes for analysis and accountability purposes. In the face of these developments, it is more important than ever to reflect on learning as experience, and to bring theory, research, and craft to bear on creating those experiences.

Dewey wrote that, "the central problem of education based on experience is to select the kind of present experiences that live fruitfully and creatively in future experiences". So, how does research in second language acquisition and teacher expertise tell us which experiences live on in communication? How do learning theories direct us to view the connections between experiences? And, how can application of technology both become normalized and create vivid experiences?

Finally, we need personal and professional integration. Coming together to share best practices in these twinned conferences is a chance to share and develop ways to better integrate our institutions, teachers, and most of all the experiences of the learners in a coherent practice of education.
