Philosophers’ Café: Is Cultural Conflict Inevitable?

March 10, 2021 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

The rise and speed with which globalization has spread across the world has increasingly brought different ethnic and cultural groups into greater contact than ever before. Wars, famine and climate change have also increased the numbers of refugees, migrants and asylum seekers which, in turn, has led to increased cultural conflict as well as renewed nationalism and ethnocentrism. But is conflict unavoidable? Are multicultural societies still possible or is integration and assimilation the goal again for most societies? Is globalization of the future only an economic and neo-liberal construct or can it be positively applied to culture? Please join us Wednesday, March 10 to discuss these important issues. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. David Coury (German and Humanities, UWGB).
