The English Department, Humanities Faculty, University of Burgos will host a

the theme Culture and Society in the Age of Globalisation.

The aim of this conference is to bring together specialists and researchers from
different nations and fields of study in an effort to develop a truly international
and trans-disciplinary understanding of the multiple ways in which globalising
processes are impacting our world, lives and identities. The conference organisers
therefore welcome papers in all areas of learning and are open to a variety of
theoretical and methodological approaches; preferred, however, are presentations
which focus on the following areas:

the role of the media (broadly understood to include all forms of telecommunications,
the Internet and computers, print and televisual journalism, and all forms of visual

Globalisation, democracy and citizenship:
the nation state, the nation and transnational capital; nationalisms and global
disorder; global governance and citizenship; cultural regionalism vs. globalisation;
