About TRInCo 2018

With great happiness and delight The Trincomalee Campus of the Eastern University Sri Lanka announces its third international conference TRInCo 2018 on the theme Glocalization: Unleashing Potential, Harnessing Opportunities and Embracing Change scheduled on 16th and 17th of August 2018 at The Trincomalee Campus premises.

The Trincomalee Campus is situated in a prime geopolitical location making it pivotal for globalisation fostering multi-ethnic, multicultural, and multi-religious way of life pointing towards an economic boom. This factor is not only true to Trincomalee but to all geographical territories where the world has already been turned into a global village.  But globalisation in many ways was seen as Americanisation and thus glocalization has become the current trend with unleashing potentials and harnessing opportunities.

After the era of thermodynamics, the era of information technology started in 1854 with the laying of the transatlantic cables and concluded in 2000 paving way to genome sciences termed as Post-metaphysical era and at this juncture globalisation is no exception for any nation but glocalization is the need of the hour and embracing the change in progress unleashes innumerable potentials through harnessing opportunities.

Globalization has not only been the theme in academia but in industrialization too for some time where globalization represented the Greater Tradition or the Meta Culture or the Universals and the Local, vernacular, small cultures have been represented as the Little Traditions or the Particulars.  Theoretically Universals are made up of Particulars and without Particulars there won’t be any Universals.  Therefore, one could conclude that the Particular is more important than the Universal and therefore, all these days both the academics and others have been voicing to save the local or the particular from the bulldozing globalization.  When Capitalism and Globalization have been going hand in hand, Post-metaphysical era projects a new turn where Global structures and isms are being localized.  Language, Commerce, Science, and Fine Arts are undergoing a sea change by becoming validated as here and now rather than having their universal appeals. In this era of genetic engineering this factor of localizing the globalized factors is a conduit that no one can escape.

It has included Scientific Dialog and Undergraduate Research forum.
