The Arts and Humanities Research Division (AHRD) of the Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) has organized its first Annual International Conference on Humanities & Arts in a Global World which was held in Athens, Greece on 3-6 January 2014. In the past, the five research units of AHRD have organized 30 annual international conferences on history, philosophy, literature, linguistics, languages, as well as the visual and performing arts. This first annual international conference offered an opportunity for cross disciplinary presentations on all aspects of humanities, arts and related disciplines.
The meeting has organized sessions and, in addition, a number of cultural and educational activities such as an urban walk around Athens (which included the Acropolis), an additional dinner, a special one-day cruise to the Greek islands and a visit to Delphi. All areas of arts, humanities and related disciplines were considered, including papers on education.
Submission of abstracts was closed on 31 May 2013.
