We are pleased to announce the 3rd international conference EDUCATION, CULTURE AND SOCIETY. The conference is organised by academics and students of social sciences and humanities for academics and students of social sciences, art studies and humanities from all over the world; we warmly invite both young and experienced scholars.


The main topics are usually problems of contemporary education related to the cultural and social change. In the year 2016 we are focused additionally on the specialist in adult and higher education. We hope to create one section, which will be dedicated to the problems of adult education in the contemporary world and another one about the idea of the university and challenges in higher education. However, we especially invite transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary scholars as one of our aims is to avoid the sometimes unclear divisions between different branches and to promote knowledge above all boundaries.  


We invite all papers, yet especially those dealing with the following:

  • modern challenges of education, culture and society
  • problems in education related to the social and cultural change
  • issues in higher and adult education
  • the idea of the university in the modern world
  • academics and academic work in the contemporary times
