Doha- The Community College of Qatar (CCQ) is set to launch its fourth Humanities Conference 2017 under the theme of “A Nation in Transition”, to be held on 29-30 March.

This year’s conference will feature high-level keynote speakers from around the world, bringing together approximately forty scholars from sixteen countries to explore the various challenges and successes of transition that peoples and nations have encountered and continue to encounter, through topics such as education, gender roles, tradition, social media, government, technology, globalization, and economics.

The two-day event will tackle the ambitious pursuit of many countries towards transition, among them the State of Qatar, with its National Vision 2030 and its four pillars; human, social, economic and environmental development.

The Community College of Qatar’s first Humanities Conference was launched in 2013 with the title, “Seeing Life, Life as Seen: Constructing Reality” to promote scholarly dialogue and exchange and contribute to the existing body of knowledge within the humanities and social sciences fields. (QNA)
