The 2017 workshop for U21 Early Career Researchers (ECRs) will be on the theme of “Interculturality and Multiculturalism: the challenges for changing societies”.

We are pleased to open nominations for the 2017 ECR workshop. The theme for the workshop will be “Interculturality and Multiculturalism: the challenges for changing societies” and will run from 4 to 6 October 2017, hosted by the Pontificia Universidad de Católica de Chile in Santiago, Chile.

There are at least two major social contexts that bring about challenges regarding interculturality and multiculturalism in changing societies: human migration and intergroup relations involving indigenous - non-indigenous communities.

The ECR workshop will address these concepts by stimulating discussion among participants and distinguished keynote speakers as well as academics that have developed research on these issues from diverse disciplines such as Philosophy, Social Psychology, Economy, History and Anthropology. In addition, there will be the opportunity for participants to learn about specific methodological tools involving quantitative and qualitative approaches and the opportunity to present their research via poster or Pecha Kucha presentations.

Further information about the workshop can be found in the outline programme attached below.


It is expected that each institution will conduct an internal selection process to identify the most appropriate candidates for attendance.

Delegates should have gained their doctorate within the last eight years and be employed by a U21 university in a research-related capacity.

Each university may nominate seven early career researchers: four guaranteed and three reserve nominees (who will be offered a place at a later date if spaces are available).  Please contact Christina Mellor (Christina.mellor@universitas21.com) for information on who is running the selection process at your university.

The deadline for the Secretariat to receive nominations is 5 May 2017.

Dr Christina Mellor, Researcher Engagement Manager
