INVITATION TO PARTICIPATION
Online International and Interdisciplinary Conference, February 9-11, 2022
The conference is open to public with registration for free of charge until February 6, 2022. The REGISTRATION / CONFIRMATION OF PARTICIPANTS / SPEAKERS / CO-CHAIRS link is available at https://bandungspirit.org/
The Covid-19 pandemic allows us the state the following points:
1) We are living in a crisis of civilisation provoked or accelerated by the pandemic and the climate change, crisis that may be seen as a transition from capitalist mode of production-based towards another; the new one is however unknown in advance.
2) Asia plays an important if not leading role towards a new global civilisation;
3) There is a risk that the rise of Asia leads to a planetary catastrophe since it is based on a model of growth created and developed by the West based on economism, productivism, consumerism, materialism, patriarchy, model denounced as the root problem.
So, how does this “crisis of civilisation” manifest in different fields and different localities? In what way the pandemic affects peoples, societies, nations, states? How do they manage the pandemic? Do Asian countries perform better than others? Does the pandemic constitute a point of “bifurcation” (Immanuel Wallerstein), a moment of “delinking” (Samir Amin), towards a “global rebalancing” or a “global restructuring” (Manoranjan Mohanty)? What “status quo” and what “transformation” following the pandemic? Are there signs of changes towards a new global post-capitalist, post-productivist, post-consummerist, post-materialist, post-patriarcal civilisation?
It is to answer those questions that the conference is organised. More than 130 papers will be presented and discussed in 7 Plenary Sessions and 30 Parallel Sessions with presenters from diverse countries of the world, from Japan at the far east to Canada at the far west, including Russia, Korea, China, Indonesia, India, Palestine, Lebanon, Greece, Serbia, Hungary, Poland, Austria, Italy, France, Brazil, Bolivia, Cuba, U.S.A…. and other countries.
