CALL FOR PAPERS – first communicate.

Jordan University College (JUCo), a Constituent College of the Saint Augustin University of Tanzania (SAUT), located in Morogoro Municipality (eastern Tanzania) have a pleasure to invite you to participate in the 1st Jordan International Conference with the main theme: Changes & Identity in a Globalising World. The conference will be held on 10th through 12th May 2019.

1. Introduction:

It can no longer be concealed that culture definitively emerged from the framework of tradition that shaped it for centuries. In front of our eyes, there are changes that will underlie the new identity. What will be this identity? Still local? Global? Another? There is certainly no one in the modern world who would know the answers to the above questions, in the philosophical, theological or economic aspect - to stop at mentioning some of the leading areas of culture. Instigated by the above curiosity, we encourage all those interested in these and similar problems - academics, researchers, professionals, and any other interested stakeholders to submit papers in a cyclical, hopefully, the conference in the following (examples) thematic blocks:

# Changes & Identity in Cultural context;

# Changes & Identity in Philosophical context;

# Changes & Identity in Religious and Theological context;

# Changes & Identity in Economical context;

# Changes & Identity in local community context case study example: Austria, Poland, Tanzania.
