Aim and Motivation

     When major concerns focus on global issues like fightings and wars, global warming and overpopulation, improving technologies and finding new resources, MAN seems to be forgotten on a secondary level of importance and concern. However though, all these 'global' issues arise from the fact that man is struggling to adapt to the rush and speedy process of life today, leaving HIM with wholes in its holistic existence and living. It is up to Social Sciences and Religions to prove that Man is not merely a wheel in a giant gearbox, dispensable and fundamentally changeable, but an important piece, integral and incorruptible in its essence, and therefore he must be treated by the future world per se.

     Modernity has gifted us with all sorts of amazing inventions, from sliced bread to self-driving cars, and the wonders of the internet and indoor plumbing. Unfortunately, the particular combination of all these modern wonders has also resulted in some fairly frightening trends in psychological and emotional problems. There are more than 200 classified forms of diagnosable mental illness. The most common psychological and emotional problems facing the world today are ones that you’re probably well aware of, but that also receive the smallest amount of attention in the media and among friends: egotism, narcissism, entitlement, depression, and dissatisfaction. Major Depression Disorder, a potentially crippling emotional disorder, is the leading cause of disability for working-age adults (18 to 44 years old) affecting 6.7 percent of the U.S. population annually. Other forms of chronic depression that occur without the spectacular crippling effect of acute depression affect about 1.5 percent of the U.S. population. Formerly called manic-depressive disorder, it is marked by very wide mood swings from episodes of nearly intoxicated and exaggerated energetic behavior to periods of marked depression and lethargy. Manic-depressive psychosis is often seen among relatively high functioning inpatients of psychiatric hospital facilities. Schizophrenia is most often diagnosed among the lowest functioning hospitalized group. Research suggests a possible relationship between mania and schizophrenic delusional potential. Bipolar disorder is one diagnostic category in which pharmacological treatment has been relatively successful.

       It is a trend nowadays to treat humans in a mechanic way and always find replacements for the things and issues seeming to keep him from detaching from his nature and evolve to a newer, better, unlike-any-other-seen stage, where feelings, emotions, beliefs, and others similar keep drawing Man from his around-the-corner future. Dialogo Conference summons all those of Social Sciences, Religions and beyond, who have something else to say about this vision of the 'future man', freed from emotions and 'humanly weaknesses', to interfere with ideas, questions, solutions or merely suggestions that society and human civilization should seize this project and save 'humanity' from becoming half what it already is and half..something else. On the other hand, those who are in favor of this becoming should emphasize the positive features and benefits we, as individuals, have from this 'social evolving', besides surviving in a newer environment.

"It is Better to perish as humans, than Surviving while losing humanity" ?!

Call for Papers

Dialogo special conference is dedicated in 2020 May to this particular focus, of the challenges man of 2020 has to face and deal with, in the areas of Psychology, Sociology, Pedagogy, and Religion. This conference has three sections to discuss issues related to our focus topic, and it can develop any kind of solutions or suggestions to them.

Section 1. Psychosocial challenges in today's society (PCTS)

It is important to recognize that psychosocial factors nowadays can influence the health and wellbeing of all people. These factors, which are linked to the way modern society is designed, organized and managed, can potentially lead to an increased level of living-related stress and a deterioration of any type of performance and of mental and physical health. Research carried out over the last several decades has identified those characteristics (‘psychosocial risk factors’) that may result in stress in workers for example, independently of individual dispositions, occupation or cultural background. Further, it is widely recognized that economic and technological developments across the world are creating changes in the pressures and demands on working people. Although some of these changes can be beneficial they can also have adverse effects leading to an increase in psychosocial hazards (or risk factors) which, in turn, can result in an increase in problems such as those encompassed by the use of the word ‘stress’.

Another possible face of this section could be provided by teenagers and their 'traditional'/common issues developed into a higher level of challenges nowadays. Adolescence is a particularly vulnerable period for people in relation to mental health problems and engagement in high-risk behaviors, including non-compliance with medical treatment, sexuality edification, building the future career, etc. The goal of this qualitative conference is to help the developing of an understanding of the psychosocial challenges as well as protective influences promoting socio-emotional coping in adolescents in order to inform mental health promotion and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) prevention programming for teenagers. And the motifs in this section could grow on for our discussions.

Section 2. Secular education and religious education (SERE)

This section explores how increasingly diverse and democratic societies reconcile issues of religion and secular education in public schooling, focusing on the American and European public school systems, but any other information is welcome. It addresses ongoing legal conflicts in education and religion and explores some recent US Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights decisions in this arena. In particular, it aims to discuss the issues involved in the relationship between secular and religious conceptions in public schooling as well as exploring the increasingly controversial themes of religious symbolism, religious curricula content, neutrality, and secularism in public schooling. The section concludes with discussion of issues related to the tendency of some domestic courts and national legislators to secularize the meaning of religious symbols and the application of principles of secularism to determine neutrality in the educational field, as well as building interreligious education for all students, civil or theologians, for preparing all for our modern pluri-diverse society.

Section 3. Diversity and multiculturalism (MAD)

Many people use the terms diversity and multiculturalism interchangeably, when in fact, there are major differences between the two. Diversity is defined as the differences between people. These differences can include race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, background, socioeconomic status, and much more. Diversity, when talking about it from the human resource management (HRM) perspective, tends to focus more on a set of policies to meet compliance standards.
Multiculturalism goes deeper than diversity by focusing on inclusiveness, understanding, and respect, and also by looking at unequal power in society.
