This collection of chapters broaches a diversity of concerns related to understanding and living in an intercultural world.
The Critical Issues: Interculturalism is an electronic collection of papers presented at the First Global Conference on Critical Issues in Interculturalism, held in Milan, Italy from 30 October to 1 November 2003. The conference was organised to explore the meaning and implications of interculturalism, from a practical and political perspective as well as in a theoretical sense. Truly global, the conference included participants from Brazil, Australia, Nepal, Singapore, Canada, USA (New York, Hawaii, California and Illinois), Europe (Belgium, Austria, Italy, Germany, Ireland and Finland), Israel, and Slovenia.
Topics were wide ranging: interculturalism and education; migrant workers; creativity (performance, art, film, music, literature); everyday life; memory; philosophy; religion and human rights; war and peace; ethnocentrism; travel; cultural hybridity; intercultural dialogue in Europe, the Americas and Asia.
