For a Critical Evaluation
Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches Internationales
5.–6.2.2001 — Paris (France)
  The stark contrast between liberalism and nationalism has been questionned in the 90's by several authors (Yael Tamir, Will Kymlicka, David Miller, Jocelyne Couture et al.) who have persuasively argued that both terms can be conjoined. The conference follows in the wake of these various attempts which have renewed our approach to nationalism.
  By liberal nationalism, we mean the defense of a national identification which defines membership in a nation as the sharing of an encompassing culture. Thus, liberal nationalism should not be confused with "civic nationalism".
  Liberal nationalism faces a real challenge. Contested by those who think that nationalism is necessarily illiberal, it has to overcome an inherent tension. Indeed, it seeks a principle of unity which is "thicker" than citizenship while remaining liberal i.e. recognizing the rights of minority cultures. To explore the various facets of liberal nationalism, we will organize the conference around four interrelated themes which will be approached from two perspectives (political philosophy and political sociology).

- Philosophical basis
- What principles of unity?
- Recognition of diversity
- Tentative models
Ethnologie – Xenologie – Interkulturelle Philosophie
Internationales und interdisziplinäres Symposion
Interdisziplinäre Arbeitsgruppe für philosophische Grundlagenprobleme, Universität Gesamthochschule Kassel
Academia Scientiarum et Artium Europaea
22.–24.2.2001 — Kassel (Deutschland)
Im Zuge der ökonomischen Globalisierung zeichnet sich in der jüngsten Zeit eine Tendenz zur "Kulturalisierung" sozio-politischer Probleme ab. Die theoretischen Debatten über Prozesse von Selbst- und Fremdzuschreibung kultureller Identitäten knüpft an die traditionellen Problemfelder ethnologischer Methoden an, wobei dem Begriff des Verstehens eine Schlüsselrolle zukommt. Doch was heute angesichts der erneut zunehmenden ethnischen und kulturellen Konflikte darüber hinaus gefordert werden muß, ist eine grundsätzliche Analyse und strukturelle Auseinandersetzung mit Formen und Strategien interkultureller Verständigung. In der Konferenz sollen gerade jene Wissenschaften zu einem gemeinsamen Diskurs zusammengeführt werden, die sich in besonderer Weise mit Problemen der Interkulturalität auseinandersetzten, um die grundlegenden Möglichkeiten und Grenzen sowie die Aufgaben und Perspektiven kulturellen Verstehens und kultureller Verständigung gemeinsam zu erörtern.

Humanities Research Centre
National Library of Australia
Australasian and Pacific Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (APSECS)
26.–28.3.2001 — Canberra (Australia)
The conference invites its participants to rethink the idea, scope and influence of the exotic in the long eighteenth century (1680s - 1830s). The term 'exotic' can be construed broadly. Papers can therefore address topics related to the 'exotic' in a non-geographical sense, as well as those which traverse exoticism's more familiar associations with far-flung geographical, imperial and Oriental domains.
