At the 3rd Island Dynamics Conference, representatives from academia, government,
business, and the third sector will explore island issues, past and present, worldwide.
Although the conference will include talks on all aspects of maritime and island
studies, this year’s conference theme is islands of culture and practice. The conference
is hosted by Eastern Mediterranean University’s Center for Cyprus Studies.
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?
Alan Jabbour, Owe Ronström, Stephen A. Royle, and Adam Grydehøj will act as keynote
Call for papers.
The deadline for abstracts has now passed. However, abstracts will still be accepted

title), please send it to convenor Adam Grydehøj at firstname.lastname@example.org.
