[Conference] 2024 SIETAR Europa Congress 

June 4th-5th, 2024: Pre-Congress workshops
June 5th-8th, 2024: Main Congress

IÉSEG School of Management in Lille Campus

IÉSEG School of Management is proud to host the 2024 SIETAR Europa congress at its Lille campus.

The 2024 SIETAR Europa Congress wants to explore how the Intercultural Field connects and expands from its origins in academic traditions around anthropology, linguistics, psychology, and ethnography towards new solutions for problems that are emerging.

The Congress will give space for difficult conversations that address the roots of divisions, animosities, and violence. Participants will learn from each other practical ways in which we can advance communication, co-creation, and constructive dialogue; together.

THEME: “Systems, The Ecosystem of Interculturalism”

From neuroscience to anti-racist justice, from migration studies to critical history: new voices, paradigms and perspectives begin to have significant influence on how we make sense of interculturalism. Our 2024 Congress wants to explore these systemic dependencies and place interculturalism into a paradigm that looks ahead by acknowledging its past and that shapes its future with intention – together.

Join us at IÉSEG School of Management for a chance to meet with like-minded interculturalists, educators and researchers in the beautiful French city of Lille.
