Cross-cultural research is one of the most popular areas of the humanities. It effectively produces reliable knowledge about oneself and the world as a whole. Scholarly perspectives of this trend are associated with increasing mobility, changes in the information exchange patterns, growth of cultural diffusions, and dynamics of glocalization and transcultural processes. The comprehension of these phenomena determines the subject of the journal's issue. It intends to present the research directed to clear up various processes of rapprochement and delimitation of cultures in various spheres of life.
Today, perhaps, no one has any doubts that the world is driven by intercultural contacts. Interactions and borrowings enrich the world; collisions regenerate it; convergence of meanings and alliances of "the Different" develop it. It was always like this. However, the history of cross-cultural relations, unlike the history of art, technology, economics, and politics has not been written yet. There are numerous gaps in understanding of the current world, which is spontaneous and unstabledespite the successes of cross-cultural engineering. Thus the researcher (whatever the sphere of intercultural contacts one is interested in) is doomed to novelty, because even limited cross-cultural discourse leads the researcher to two types of valuable discoveries: 1) Identification of similarities, knowledge, and skills transferred and adapted, or derived from experience of different nations worked out in different places and at different times, i.e., the orderly, claiming universality knowledge; 2) Detection of differences and discrepancies in everyday practices and understanding of the world, which allows one not only to comprehend better "the Other" and to infer its cultural specifics but also to learn something new about oneself.
Taking into account the inter-discipline character of the problemsstated, the theoreticians (philosophers, culturologists, historians, psychologists, orientalists, religious scholars, anthropologists), practitioners (experts in intercultural management, administrators of multinational regions and international projects), and other authors representing social and humanist scholarly spheres are invited for cooperation. Researchers who are attracted by heuristic possibilities of cross-cultural research, inspired by the interactivity of modern knowledge, by possibilities of integration between scientific, artistic, religious, and philosophical perspectives, by opportunities of synthesis of Western and Eastern worldviews, are welcome.
Of particular interestare works dedicated to:
- history and theory of intercultural interactions;
- methodology of transcultural analytics;
- identification of new forms of identity;
- intercultural communication;
- identification of ethnosophistic specifications;
- juxtaposition of cultural codes of the West and the East;
- philosophical and culturologicalcomparativistics;
- problems of glocal synthesis, i.e., studies highlighting the problems of the transformation of cultural orientations, meanings, values, and needs.

Selected materials are supposed to be presented under three categories: history, theory, and current practice.

Deadline is 01.11.2018
