"Re-imagining the Tower of Babel" Languages, Cultures, Cultural Diplomacy & World Peace.

The Transatlantic Dialogue conference series on global citizens, held in Luxembourg since 2008, explores the significance of culture and liberal education for fostering global citizenship from both US and European perspectives.

The 2020 edition of Transatlantic Dialogue aims to explore the complexities of human communication and develop our skills at engaging with them. By channeling discussion around three main areas of focus, it will encourage participants to reflect on our contemporary patterns of communication and the way they shape, hinder, and enable more meaningful relationships. Taking the lead from the historical, literary and spiritual layers of representation and interpretation of culture supplied by the powerful image of the Tower of Babel, these three focus areas are:

  • Languages & cultures
  • The practice of cultural diplomacy
  • The pursuit of peace. We are seeking program proposals for the 5th TAD and hope you will consider presenting at this conference.

There are two programme formats: programme sessions (75’) and round table discussions (60’).

Relating your session to the conference theme of Languages and Cultures, Cultural Diplomacy, & Peace.

Contact US: Dr. Maureen E. Wilson
Contact EU & worldwide: Dr. Wim Coudenys

Due date: Tuesday, October 1st 2019
