- Publisher's Summary
- "Politics of Interculturality" fulfills the need for a thorough and critical evaluation of the notion of interculturality. Taking institutional and educational discourses on the 'intercultural' as its main focus, the volume captures vigorous debates currently underway across four continents - the Americas, Europe, Asia and Oceania. The volume's prominent and emerging scholars all agree that change is needed in the way interculturality is used and conceived, especially at a time when the 'Other' is an increasing issue of social concerns and political debates. The authors break with tradition by teasing out the hidden assumptions and implications of interculturality - making explicit the implicit presence of the tired old notion of 'culture'. They also look to establish new ways of engaging with interculturality. The book will be of substantial interest to a wide range of readers who are interested in international communication, education, migration studies, critical race studies, cultural studies, anthropology, linguistics and business. Undergraduates and novice researchers will also find invaluable advice on how to research politics of interculturality.
