Maria Flora Mangano Profile

ProfilesMaria Flora Mangano, Italian scholar of intercultural and interdisciplinary dialogue, with a background in natural (Ph.D. in Biochemistry) and in social sciences (Ph.D. in Humanistic Intercultural Studies).

Maria Flora ManganoSince 2007, she has been lecturing on Communication of Scientific Research to young scientists drawn from different fields of study within the natural, social and human sciences of some Italian faculties. Since 2008, she has been invited professor of Dialogue among Cultures in an Italian philosophical and theological faculty (“St. Peter’s Philosophical-Theological Institute” of Viterbo). She is interested in dialogue as a space of relationship between, across and beyond cultures and disciplines.

Mangano, M.F. (2015). Dialogue, as a common ground between, across and beyond cultures and disciplines – A case study of transcultural and transdisciplinary communication lectures for graduate and undergraduate students. In N. Haydari & P. Holmes (Eds.), Case studies in intercultural dialogue (pp. 73-86). Dubuque, IA: Kendall Hunt.

as well as a book on the topic:
