2017 Humanities Conference Conference on Building a Global Community: The Past, the Present and the Future Location: Hefei World Foreign Language School, Hefei, China Date: May 13th-14th 2017 The Annual Conference on Global community intends to bring together scholars from all over the world to share knowledge on the interconnectivity that is bridging nations together. The influences of modern technology through telecommunications have facilitated a transfer of information and data rapidly across the globe. Through this information sharing and connectivity we have witnessed a global social interaction on a monumental scale as cultural boundaries are being eroded and are being redefined. Furthermore, as resources of the world are sparsely and widely distributed the inherent need to engage through commercial activities have pre-empted a global community to interact with one another based on a set of shared values and traditions. These traditions have enshrined the alignment of nations and leaderships along the same political thoughts and philosophies. Topics of interests: Technology, Culture, Economics and Politics. Abstracts of no more than 300 words and a current CV should be sent to email@example.com by February 28, 2017. Include presentation title, presenter's name, institutional affiliation, contact information.
