Call for Papers: 3rd Island Dynamics Conference
Famagusta, North Cyprus, 14-18 May 2013

The 3rd Island Dynamics Conference is an interdisciplinary academic 
conference exploring island and maritime issues worldwide. Previous Island 
Dynamics Conferences have featured presentations by researchers from a 
variety of disciplines, ranging from Business Studies to Sociology, 
Political Science to Media & Communication, Economics to Anthropology.

Abstracts are welcome on any island or maritime topic, but we particularly 
encourage presentations concerning the conference theme, “Islands of Culture 
and Practice”: Islands are often home to unique artistic, social, economic, 
and political traditions. They both preserve traditions that have been lost 
on the mainland and function as meeting places for traditions, the mingling 
of which result in new traditional forms. We can even speak of archipelagos 
of culture and practice, where traditions flourish in dispersed geographical 
areas. How do traditions develop in such circumstances, and what can island 
and mainland communities tell us about one another?

Keynote speakers are Philip Hayward, Alan Jabbour, Owe Ronström, and Stephen 
A. Royle. This Island Dynamics event is a collaboration of Eastern 
Mediterranean University’s Center for Cyprus Studies, the Institute for 
Anthropological Research’s Center for Island Studies, and the University of 
the Highlands & Islands’ Centre for Nordic Studies.

The deadline for abstracts is 1 December 2012. Submit an abstract early to 
take advantage of early registration rates, which also end on 1 December.
