Although not restricted to such focus, it particularly intends to examine the dimensions that favour the interaction of regional spheres: from ways or landscapes as a convergence of diversity - "routes to roots", "the shortest distance between myriads of distinct traditions", a collective of regional identities - to vectors like media, science, language, literature, music, cinema, and many others. Discussions involving historical perspectives as well as the articulation of historical and geographic concepts (time, event, history; place, space, landscape) are welcomed and encouraged.
And finally, it also has the objective of reflecting on the real or imagined boundaries that shape regional cultures and identities in a world of increasing mobility of people and ideas.
Abstracts must be submitted to Fernando Kuhn (swocean[at]hotmail.com) until April 30, 2012.
