Researching interculturally: Conceptual and methodological issues
Friday 24 November | October Gallery, Central London (map)
Research is very often an intercultural encounter. For students and scholars of Arts and Humanities subjects, researching interculturally requires a critical and creative understanding of the contested concept of culture, the ‘inter-’ aspects of cultural encounters and researchers’ own positions. This workshop will focus on the core conceptual and methodological issues of researching interculturally and is designed to create a space for thinking through and about interculturality both critically and creatively.
The workshop consists of four parts:
- Thinking interculturally through art;
- A conversation with a panel of speakers from a range of fields such as sociology, art education, applied linguistics, language and intercultural studies and literature and culture;
- Group discussion;
- Discussion and summary.
The workshop is coordinated by
- Professor Zhu Hua (Birkbeck, University of London)
- Dr Bojana Petric (Birkbeck, University of London)
- Dr Alessia Cogo (Goldsmiths, University of London)
- Professor Maria Roth-Lauret (University of Sussex).
