CALL FOR PAPERS ISISA – 14th ‘Islands of the World’ Conference 2016: Niss(i)ology and Utopia: back to the roots of Island Studies 23-27 May 2016 Mytilini, Lesvos Island, Greece The “International Small Islands Studies Association”, ISISA announces the 14 th International Conference “Niss(i)ology and Utopia: back to the roots of Island Studies” organized by the University of the Aegean on Lesvos Island, Greece on 23 - 27 May 2016 (isisa2016.aegean.gr). We wish to attract different types of interests on topics concerning islands, but also to focus more specifically on some of the issues involved in living and producing on islands. We hope to do so by exchanging experiences and reflections, especially related to the real and symbolic geography of islands, developing conceptual frameworks that can be used to build common approaches for our ‘world of islands’, facing global climate and economic challenges on a local scale, and discussing ways forward for development without destroying fragile island societies, cultures and habitats. The conference will be structured around three major topics: •

Integrated Management of islands: islands are by definition ideal laboratories for conceptualizing, planning and implementing integrated approaches. Here, environmental, economic and social aspects of management and policies will be explored. Indicative themes include:     

Environmental management of islands Biodiversity Protected areas and islands Islands as socio-ecological systems: resilience and vulnerability Climate change and islands

• Island Identity - Niss(i)ology and Utopia: the experience of islands and on islands is interwoven with culture, production, nature, landscape and history. Here, identity issues, but also branding opportunities and strategies will be discussed in order to cope with island culture and specificities to generate national, regional or international competitiveness. At the same time, islands have always been associated with “utopias” and “dystopias”. Indicative themes include:     



Island branding Island identities: “tradition” and “globalization” Islands as utopias “Islomania” and “islophobia” Reading, writing and islands: representations of islands in art and culture

Attractiveness and Accessibility of islands: focusing on overcoming or facing isolation, while discussing what makes islands more or less attractive as places for

living or working on. Here, the discussion will focus on how to create an “alternative” attractiveness compared to that of “core areas”, based on the ‘quality of island life’. Indicative themes include:    

Living on islands: economy and quality of life Accessibility of islands Archipelagoes and islands Tourism and Islands
