The first Compass online conference aims to help break academic boundaries - 
within and between disciplines, between theory and practice, approaches and 
methodologies - by providing a space for multi and cross disciplinary review on 
the theme of Breaking Down Barriers.

Abstracts are invited for survey/review papers from the disciplines of History, 
Literature, Philosophy, Religion, Geography, Linguistics, Sociology, and Social 
Psychology.   In particular, we welcome papers that explore the issues of 
Paradigms | Borders |  The Environment | Communication | Justice and Human Rights
