Cultural Identity and Multiculturalism on Film (Canada)

Intercultural Pedagogyi am… Films about cultural identity, multiculturalism, and integration, available for free from Toronto Metropolitan University, Canada.

Graduate students from across Canada were invited to submit proposals to be part of an exciting opportunity to capture their individual expressions of identity and belonging or not belonging in a three-minute film. Through a competitive selection process, 28 students were selected to receive professional mentorship and support to produce an engaging short film of their unique story. Most of them had little or no filmmaking experience but got busy inside their pandemic bubbles for six months. These short films together weave a tapestry of Canadian identity today. Project led by Toronto Metropolitan University professor Anna Triandafyllidou, the Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) in Migration and Integration, and by Gemini award-winning filmmaker and scholar Cyrus Sundar Singh.

Development, Interculturality & Power

Resources in ICD“ width=Chichizola Ramirez, B. E. (2022). Development, interculturality and power: Translating an NGO-led development intervention in the Peruvian Andes. New York, NY: Peter Lang.

Interculturality involves a dialogue among diverse cultures and the redistribution of power, and in countries such as Peru has most often been discussed alongside intercultural bilingual education (IBE). In this book, Chichizola moves interculturality away from its educational context to explore its practice in the complex negotiation of social development projects. The book provides the reader with a close look at the internal negotiations among scientists, development experts and Quechua communities from London to Peru. Using Actor-Network Theory as an ethnographic approach, the book invites us to reflect on the need to re-politicise the discourse around interculturality.

KC105 AcculturationKamali-Chirani, F. (2022). Acculturation. Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, 105. Available from: https://centerforinterculturaldialogue.files.wordpress.com/2022/07/kc105-acculturation.pdf

The Center for Intercultural Dialogue publishes a series of short briefs describing Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue. Different people, working in different countries and disciplines, use different vocabulary to describe their interests, yet these terms overlap. Our goal is to provide some of the assumptions and history attached to each concept for those unfamiliar with it. As there are other concepts you would like to see included, send an email to the series editor, Wendy Leeds-Hurwitz. If there are concepts you would like to prepare, provide a brief explanation of why you think the concept is central to the study of intercultural dialogue, and why you are the obvious person to write up that concept.
