Call For Papers

“Different doesn't mean wrong; it just means different.” The implications of the Diversity & Differentness issues are great and they extend to any field of social concern, psychological, religious, political, and beyond. Diversity is generally understood to encompass race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, age, and political and religious beliefs. And while in the past it has focused on strengthening inter-cultural tolerance, currently new ideas about diversity and inclusion have developed, shifting the focus towards enriching human learning and experience, so-called ‘unity in diversity.’ Nowadays movements strive to legalize more and more issues that were previously banned from public display or engagement, while now more than ever they are promoted, fought for, and socially imposed. A new kind of 'generations conflict' emerges from this fact, 'liberals' pro-actively engage social impositions of differentness, while 'traditionalists' stand for a more conservative approach. There seems to be no way of objectively and absolutely prove one way is 'correct' while the other should be regarded as 'wrong', but each path is urged to explain its validity.

Well, for a start, don’t get me wrong! It is not up to us to be the ‘judge, jury, and executioner’ for any of these peculiar, strange, or rather unique kinds of envisioning life and living that have emerged lately. Instead, it is with certainty ours to get aware of them all and their thinking, get acquainted with any of their motivational existence so that we can develop newly, right way of “dealing” with them.

Do we need to rethink society? Do they fit in along with the rest of it? How can we influence the social view to help with the coexistence of these elements, traditional and differentness? Should we consider differentness as 'out of the ordinary' or just another emerging pattern? It is all about being 'original' or merely 'odd'?
