The Forum 2016 focuses on the topic “Work/labor”, considered from different points of view: in the economic perspective, as a function of the productive processes; in the cultural perspective, as a function of a specific way to conceive such processes; finally as human labor: the worker beyond the work.
“The work and the city” refers to the general frame of the debate if by “city/citizenship”. Meaning the whole of the relations between the subjects and the spaces they inhabit (also the work spaces), their potentialities of recognition, rights, values, histories, memories, identities, communities.
All interested are invited to present their own proposals within the suggested fields of discussion, or to present different topics/panels (within the given general theme) bringing their own local experiences, views and inputs from different scientific fields in a transdisciplinary perspective (economics, social sciences, history, psychology, arts, cultural studies, political science).
The present call is addressed to young adults aged 18 to 35, without distinction as to nationality.
The Forum works will be conducted both in Italian and in English; simultaneous translation from/to both languages will be provided.
Those who are interested in taking part to the Forum must apply by filling and submitting the online form available on the organization’s website (www.castellodiduinopoesia.org). For submissions’ deadlines, please check the following paragraphs.
Those interested may apply either as speakers or as auditors.
While filling the application form, those who are interested in applying as speakers must provide a title and an abstract for the paper that, if selected, they’ll have to eventually develop, in order to present it on the Forum. Thus they must fill all the form’s fields, including n. 15 (paper’s title) and n. 16 (paper’s abstract).
Given the high amount of requests received so far from speakers who need a visa, and given the need to allow them to have the documents required for the visa application process as soon as possible,the deadline to submit the application form (for all speakers, no matter if they need to apply for a visa or not) is anticipated to Sunday, July 3, 2016, within 11.59 pm (CET). The organizers don’t guarantee that later applications will be taken into consideration. The organization will disclose the selection’s results by July 18, 2016.
At the same time, the organization doesn’t guarantee that visa-related documents might be provided to applicant speakers before the selection’s results are disclosed.
The selection of speakers will be based upon the assessment of the abstracts (quality level, originality, adherence to the Forum’s theme), the applicants’ profiles, the available budget. Therefore the organization will accept a number of participants based on the actual financial availability, thus reserving the right of rejecting exceeding requests.
Selected speakers are strongly advised to purchase travel tickets on their own, as the organizers don’t guarantee they’ll be able to do so themselves.
However, the organization will contribute to the travel expenditure the speakers will have to bear, upon presentation of the travel documents (flight, train, bus tickets, boarding passes, etc.) by the speakers themselves. The amount of the reimbursement won’t exceed 90% of the expenditure, neither it will exceed, in any case, 400 € per person.
