Dr. Egea presented her paper “Alter-Mondialization and Global Marketing of Local Multiculturalism: Some Ethico-Political Issues”.
Dr. Egea: “In this presentation, I draw on the precedent set by Benetton’s multicultural, multiracial campaigns, and on Michel Serres’s texts to explore some limits and consequences of the trend toward the global commodification of culture supported by advertising, and to pose a few questions”.
The theme of AERA 2015 Annual Meeting was "Toward Justice: Culture, Language, and Heritage in Education Research and Praxis". Dr. Egea presented her paper “Kazakhstan: The Challenge of Multilingualism and Multiliteracy”. In this paper Dr. Egea described and discussed how Kazakhstan faced the challenge of its multilingual, multicultural, and multiliteracy identity.
Dalmira Kulmaganbetova finds this conference interesting and useful: “I have gained valuable experiences in presenting in front of big audience. These conferences are the basement for the further researches and good start for young scholars who are looking for a job or just experiencing themselves”.
