Dear UNeECC Colleagues,
On behalf of the organizing committee, we are pleased to announce the 4th Transatlantic Dialogue
Creating human bonds through Cultural Diplomacy
When: May 24th -26th / 27th ’17
Where: Campus Esch Belval & Neumünster Abbey Luxembourg
The Transatlantic Dialogue conference series on global citizens, held in Luxembourg since 2008, explore the significance of culture / liberal education for fostering global citizenship from both US and European perspectives.
More than ever before, cultural diplomacy has a vital role to play in international relations, enabling us to appreciate and promote points of intersectionality and common bonds. Bridging differences begins with approaching others with the will to acknowledge and understand their and our own cultural identities and ‘othernesses’. Universities have a key role to play in this regard and presenters will offer multiple perspectives on how this can be achieved.
