The focus domains are chosen according to the main directions and contemporary challenges in the field of humanities and social sciences. Nevertheless, they are not mandatory; we assume that, following the submissions, the areas aforementioned will be drawn more accurately.
Our target is to crossbreed various types of academic discourse-staging, namely, frontal presentations, workshops, roundtables, and small-group discussions. The conference addresses the following categories of researchers: junior researchers, middle-career researchers, senior researchers, as well as academic project managers. We also welcome students who are beginning to pursue their MA or PhD degrees to participate; their research projects can be discussed within larger discussion groups and roundtables.
Within the broader frame of interdisciplinary approaches, our aim is to create a larger platform for academic debates and information exchange. Our initiative is to facilitate academic networking for young research teams and to encourage cross-institutional collaboration. While communicating the results of their individual inquiries, our guests will be able to find virtual partners for future projects.
The conference languages are the following: Romanian, English, and French.
