                      Backgrounds and Aims

                      With the accelerating process of globalizing in these years, the cultures of people around the planet tend to merge together. On the other hand,the claim of protecting culture variety and culture identity emerges against the background of globalization. In both West and East countries, the cultural consciousness and self-identity of ethnic groups become a focus in social scientific circle. These items are also tightly related with the protection of traditions and intangible culture heritages, in which Asia abounds in experiences.

                      In order to explore and investigate systematically these experiences, Centre of social & cultural anthropology study, CASS together with the Research Centre of Ethnological and Anthropological Theories & Methods, "985 Project" of Minzu University of China initiate the international Workshop on Culture Identity and Culture Protection: the Asian Practice.
