Ongoing globalization processes are affecting all parts of economy and our social life. Transnational and intercultural cooperation is becoming more and more important. This has impacts for organisational structures, work profiles and individual biographies. Internationalisation does not only become a stronger normative for companies, but also for individuals. New demands, new chances and new challenges for identity construction arise with the processes of social change in the 21st century. That’s why our conference is focussing on the interplay of work, globalization and identity.

The conference has an innovative design, as it is embedded in the curriculum of the Master of Sciences in Business Psychology. To provide opportunities of learning by research is a core value of the University of Bremen. During the last two semesters, our Master students have done intensive research within the area of "work, globalization and identity". They are now presenting their final works within the conference and discuss it with a selected range of senior researchers from all over the world. An effective networking and exchange of different intercultural perspectives is not only a theoretical demand, but put into practice by our conference. The conference will be an open space for interdisciplinary discussions. In order to strengthen the idea of intercultural communication, different projects will be intensively discussed in small research groups and plenary sessions. Insights presented by our guests regarding their own research projects complete the program.

On behalf of the University of Bremen, we are proud and glad to welcome the following guests to our conference:

  • Prof. Dr. Ingrid Zakrisson, Midsweden University (Sweden)
  • Prof. Dr. Ulrika Danielsson, Midsweden University (Sweden)
  • Dr. Niels Sandholm Larsen, University College Metropol, Copenhagen (Denmark)
  • Prof. Dr. Didier Raffin, Université Strasbourg (France)

We also want to send a warm welcome to our Master students. Their dedicated and intensive work set the ground for the upcoming event.

We are looking forward to an inspiring joint conference, full of intensive discussions, a share of perspectives and intercultural experiences.
