CONGRATULATION ON ALL ACCEPTED PAPERS: REVISION DEADLINE: AUGUST 25, 2016
INTERNATIONAL UNDERGRADUATE SYMPOSIUM ON HUMANITIES AND ARTS 2016 (INUSHARTS 2016)
In the last few decades, global interactions have become much more complex and fast-changing. Social, political, economic, and cultural issues have become more and more multidimensional and involved transnational engagement as a result of globalization, while there have been crises in nationalism and the loosening up of traditional national boundaries. Furthermore, the rapid advancement of information and communication technology is also responsible in transforming behavior, ways of thinking, and cultural productions nowadays.
Without repositioning themselves, the humanities and arts may suffer from stagnation, or even immobilized, as various cross-cultural and cross-sectoral phenomena are happening very fast. Therefore, the Center for Cultural and Societal Research (PPKB) of the Faculty of Humanities, Universitas Indonesia, organizes a special symposium that provides a rare opportunity for (senior) undergraduate students who are in the process of writing or finishing their final papers/thesis to present their ideas and insights regarding the current situation of their fields of study based on their visions and ongoing research. Supervisors are strongly encouraged to co-present with their advisees as corresponding author to help boost the spirit and motivation of their students.
The symposium will look at two major themes: Theme A: “Humanities and Arts across Disciplinary Boundaries” is designated for students learning philosophy, anthropology, archaeology, history, library and information science, religious studies, and arts, among others. Theme B: “New Imaginations in Language, Literature, and Arts,” is concerned with the study of literature, language, cultural studies, and area studies.
