Key Concept #39: Otherness Translated into Italian

Continuing with translations of the Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, today I am posting  KC#39: Otherness and The Other(s), originally written by Peter Praxmarer for publication in English in 2014, now translated with the help of Paola Giorgis into Italian. While translating, he has taken the opportunity to slightly revise and update the original English version as well. As always, all Key Concepts are available as free PDFs; just click on the thumbnail to download. Lists of Key Concepts organized chronologically by publication date and number, alphabetically by concept, and by languages into which they have been translated, are available, as is a page of acknowledgments with the names of all authors, translators, and reviewers.

KC39 Otherness_ItalianPraxmarer, P. (2016). L’Alterità e gli Altri. Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, 39. (P. Praxmarer & P. Giorgis, trans.). Available from:

To see which other concepts have been translated into which languages, see the main publications page. The goal of the project is to expand the concepts available to discussions of intercultural dialogue beyond those who are fluent in English. If you are interested in translating one of the Key Concepts, please contact me for approval first because dozens are currently in process. As always, if there is a concept you think should be written up as one of the Key Concepts, whether in English or any other language, propose it. If you are new to CID, please provide a brief resume. This opportunity is open to masters students and above, on the assumption that some familiarity with academic conventions generally, and discussion of intercultural dialogue specifically, are useful.
