Abstract. Human mobility is a building block in the historical development. Migrants act as a cultural bond in the exchange of ideas and achievements that shape and re-shape cultural identities throughout history. Whether peaceful or a fruit of conflicts, human migration has led to new inspirations and innovations, while in the same time has caused deterioration and destruction.
We invite proposals that enable to delineate the perception of migration in different cultural and disciplinary contexts by studying the political, social, cultural and psychological effects of this phenomenon as reflected in literature, art, history and philosophy. We encourage also papers that accentuate on the influence of this phenomenon in strengthening social cohesion and creating multicultural values in human society, but also the adverse impact of the recurring cultural transfer on receiving societies.
