The conference will be held at Gregynog Hall.

This residential conference centre is situated near Newtown in mid Wales. It is set in beautiful landscaped gardens and extensive grounds. The conference will bring together scholars and practitioners working in the broad areas of multiculturalism and cultural difference, across a wide range of disciplines, social and cultural texts and practices.

Plenary Speakers:

Papers are invited from people working in the areas of critical and cultural theory, cultural studies, religious studies, literature, the arts, media studies, film studies, political theory, sociology, social policy, the built environment and other relevant fields.

We will discuss cutting edge research that addresses the various ways in which multiculturalism has been theorized and how it works in practice in the social, political and cultural spheres. Papers that deal with multiculturalism from historical perspectives are also welcome.

Prospective speakers are invited to submit a 500 word proposal along with a short CV to the conference organizers at: multiculturalism@cf.ac.uk.
