Following Janice’s call for opportunities where to present our group research work, please see a relevant call for papers listed below.
The Family & Consumer Sciences Research Journal is inviting submissions for a special issue with the theme of “Highlighting Cultural Diversity from a Global Perspective.” This special issue on cultural diversity broadly defined, is dedicated to understanding the accompanying social trends, new opportunities and challenges that are emerging in an increasingly interrelated world. This issue will also serve as a platform for an interdisciplinary exploration of the intersection of family and consumer science related fields with globalization. It aims to generate a discussion on how the interface between family and consumer sciences research can be beneficially applied to practice from a global perspective. Abstracts are due November 15, 2011.
Although not specifically related to the areas covered in the workshops so far, it could be interesting to look at the singularisation or disposition of items, and how these views alter within different cultures.
