Maria 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).
Since 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. Her approach to research and teaching is transcultural and transdisciplinary, and, in this perspective, the space of relationship is mediated by the philosophy of dialogue.
She participated in the National Communication Association Summer Conference on Intercultural Dialogue ’09 and, since then, she had shared this approach in several contributions related to the Center for Intercultural Dialogue network. They include:
• a chapter in a volume edited by the CID scholars: 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.), Intercultural case studies (pp. 73-86). Dubuque, IA: Kendall Hunt.
• two guest posts for the CID website: in 2013 (Example of dialogue among cultures) and in 2014 (A space of relationship among dialogues and cultures),
• Case Study #2: Reconciliation for the series Constructing Intercultural Dialogues in 2017, and
• translations of multiple Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue into Italian.
