Interdisciplinary Research Foundation is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the upcoming Online International Conference ‘Time, Space and Mobility’. The conference is addressed to academics, researchers and professionals with a particular interest related to the conference topic. We invite proposals from various disciplines including philosophy, history, sociology, anthropology, culture studies, literature and architecture. The language of the conference is English.
