Frontiers of Diversity: Explorations in Contemporary Pluralism

By Avery Plaw | Go to book overview

Welcome to aCritical IssuesProject
Frontiers of Diversity is part of the Critical Issues: Pluralism project. This inter- and multi-disciplinary research project aims to explore the theme of 'pluralism' and the challenges it is posing across the world today. Pluralism has unleashed a reaction of paradigm consolidation in political, economic, social and cultural areas that are having a major impact on all aspects of our lives. The project will examine counter-pluralist trends, for example, globalisation, and both the meetings and the publication series will give people a chance to interact with others working in differing disciplines and professions who are exploring related ideas and areasThe project will develop a focus on a number of core themes:
pluralism in political contexts
pluralism in social and economic contexts
how major trends in dominant economies affect the many weaker economies.
pluralism and religion - and the question of the possibility of a religiously plural society
pluralism in literature - with reference to recent trends in literary criticism
pluralism in medicine - with reference to developments in medicine and medical practice and the growth in alternative systems of medicine and therapy
Knowledge Pluralism
Ecological Pluralism
Managerial Pluralism
Designing Pluralism

A significant sub-theme of the project is Managing Pluralism. The significance of this theme is the special importance given to finding ways to manage processes, structures and processes differently. The theme is both timely and significant as tendencies to pull in different directions are causing tremendous frustrations amongst policy makers, administrators and recipients. There is a cry for “doing things differently” but there is an intellectual vacuum that the conference is intending to fill, namely, how to do things differently in the light of existence of pluralism.
