KC55 Stereotypes Translated into Greek

Key Concepts in ICDContinuing translations of Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, today I am posting KC#55: Stereotypes, which Anastacia Kurylo wrote for publication in English in 2015, and which Eleftherios Margaritis and Anastasia Karakitsou have now translated into Greek.

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.

KC55 Stereotypes_GreekKurylo, A. (2018). Stereotypes [Greek]. (E. Margaritis & A. Karakitsou, trans). Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, 55. Available from:
https://centerforinterculturaldialogue.files.wordpress.com/2018/12/kc55-stereotypes_greek.pdf

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.

Fiction Celebrates Common Humanity

Applied ICDEmre, M. (1 November 2018).  This library has new books by major authors, but they can’t be read until 2114. New York Times

The Future Library is a work of art that will take an astonishing 100 years to complete:

“In a small clearing in the forests of Nordmarka, one hour outside the city limits of Oslo [Norway], a thousand spruce trees are growing. They will grow for the next 96 years, until 2114, when they will be felled, pulped, pressed and dyed to serve as the paper supply for the Scottish artist Katie Paterson’s Future Library: an anthology of 100 previously unpublished books written by some of the 21st century’s most celebrated writers. There will be one book for every year the trees will have grown, each a donation from a writer chosen by the Future Library’s board of trustees — a gift from the literary gatekeepers of the present to the readers of the future.”

How is this relevant to intercultural dialogue?

“Turkish novelist Elif Shefak [who provided the fourth manuscript in the project]…describes writing a novel for the Future Library as ‘a secular act of faith’ in a world that seems to have gone mad, a world that violently accentuates the differences between people instead of celebrating their common humanity. ‘When you write a book,’ she says, ‘you have the faith that it will reach out to someone else, to someone who is different from you and it will connect us. That you will be able to transcend the boundaries of the self, that was given to you at birth, that you will be able to touch someone else’s reality.'”

Eleftherios Margaritis Profile

ProfilesEleftherios Margaritis was born in Athens, Greece, but he comes from the island of Lesvos. He has an MA in European Societies & European Integration from the Department of Sociology at the University of Aegean (2018), and a BA in Philosophy & Education from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2014).

Eleftherios MargaritisHe attended the Padagogische Hochschule Freiburg (Germany) as part in the Erasmus exchange program, where he experienced first-hand the potential of intercultural communication. Later he finished his obligatory military service in Greece with distinction by helping register migrants in 2015, where he experienced the difficulty of intercultural communication with traumatized people. Later, even while working as a manager for Enterprise Car Rental, he continued helping by contributing to research projects like View(points) storytelling project, and by cooperating with UNHCR for the transfer of the vulnerable. The situation on his island makes him feel sad and happy at the same time: sad because of the tragic journey of these traumatized people, yet happy he has had the opportunity to help them in person.

As an undergraduate, he majored in Education, learning multicultural/intercultural content. His Master’s thesis was about migration, specifically intercultural education in Greece and its European dimension. Currently he attends two seminars, one through the University of Thessaly on the Teaching of Greek as a Foreign Language, and another through the Kapodistrian University of Athens on Inclusive Education. He now lives in Norrkoping, Sweden, where he is considering pursuing a PhD at Linkoping University through the Department of Ethnic and Migration Studies.
