The cultural theorist Raymond Williams (1976) once described ‘culture’ as one of the most complex words in the English language, and hence one of the most difficult to define. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the idea of culture was defined in opposition to nature as a range of social, political, ethical, religious, philosophical and technical values. A number of thinkers and philosophers such as Hegel deemed cultural forms that were close to nature as being inferior to those that were linked more closely to the human spirit. The world is apparently becoming a smaller place because of instantaneous transactions and communications, increased and faster travel, and technological innovation.
Near about 150 delegates are Expected to attend the same from different part of the country and abroad. We are diligently working on bringing the most knowledgeable researchers from all over the world, as well as leaders in the industry to explore these important topics.
