In our ever-evolving global landscape, the intersections of diverse cultures emerge as formidable agents, intricately shaping the dynamics of knowledge, identity and transnational cultural exchange. The conference on “Cultural Crossroads: Mapping Diaspora, Transnational Flows and the Fluidity of Knowledge”, stands as an intellectual melting pot, devoted to the profound exploration of the nuanced relationships forged at the crossroads of varied cultural intersections across the globe, with a deliberate focus on the Arab-Kerala connections woven by the convergence of transnational flow of knowledge and culture.

Our collective endeavor is to navigate through an intellectual landscape where the mixture of diverse cultures is not merely a confluence but a complex interplay of historical legacies, contemporary realities, and future trajectories. We seek to investigate the transformative potential embedded in these cross-cultural intersections, recognizing them as fertile grounds for the generation of new insights and the evolution of novel perspectives
