The Interculturalism project is an opportunity to share your knowledge and experiences in basically all fields that are part of everyday life experiences of interfaces of individuals and cultures and during major social and cultural changes of individuals’ life such as personal or forced migration, war, .
Interculturalism aims at discussing a very prominent and important aspect of modern life. In modern era individuals are almost constantly on the move whether they are migrant, tourists, expatriates, students and so on. Mobility of individuals creates interesting contacts between people, cultures, countries, policies, values, ideas, arts and even in a very intimate level, identities. In this project we aim to exhibit the field of this interchange in different levels and areas.
Interculturalism engages in creative and innovative inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary research dialogues which seek to explore the meaning and implications of interculturalism, from both a practical, political perspective and also in a more strictly theoretical sense.
Interculturalism is an Inter-disciplinary where we aim to discuss the topic via different disciplines and experiences. Discussing the topic of interculturalism from only one point of view or one perspective risks losing a rich, depth and sustainability debate options. Therefore, our project aims to bring together individuals who work in different fields where interculturalism occurs, and academics from different disciplines who discuss the topic from different, yet related angles.
The project will critically engage with a number of core themes:
• contemporary rediscoveries and redefinitions of culture
• developments of new terms
• cultural boundaries, peoples and nations
• cultural formations
• politicising culture
• art and cultural representations
• crossing cultural boundaries
• Fear of the other
Related themes will also be identified for development and exploration. Out of our deliberations it is anticipated that a series of related cross context research projects will develop.
Who Should Get Involved?
Interculturalism is open to all individuals who during their work (policymakers, nurses, doctors, teachers, social workers and others) face problems of cultures brought together. The project is open to academics who are interested in discussing relevant topics. Individuals from all disciplines are warmly invited to participate in this project.
The aim of Interculturalism project is to bring to a better understanding of the field of interchange of cultures from different point of views and different angles.
