A conference entitled “The Condition of Contradiction: Implications for Globalization, Identity & Culture” is calling for paper proposals. The event will take place in Madrid, Spain, on the 13th and 14th of April 2018. It is organised by the Saint Louis University and hosted by its Madrid campus.
The conference theme revolves around the contradictions of modern world, for example the contrast between global economy but limited personal mobility.

- Protest Politics
- Contradictions in New Media: Theory and Practice
- Activism & Quests for Social Justice
- Journalism: Its Defenders and Impersonators
Paper abstracts must be submitted by January 8th 2018.
