KC39 Otherness and the Other(s) Translated into Portuguese

Key Concepts in ICDContinuing translations of Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, today I am posting KC#39: Otherness and the Other(s), which Peter Praxmarer wrote for publication in English in 2014, and which Filipa Subtil has now translated into Portuguese.

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.

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.

On May 3, 2012, I gave a talk entitled “The history of intercultural communication in the United States” to the Grupo de Estudos em Comunicação, Ciência e Tecnologia, which is part of the Instituto Ciências Sociais da Universidade de Lisboa, in Lisbon, Portugal.

Prof. José Luis Garcia directs this group, and so was my official host, although I owe thanks to Dr. Filipa Gonçalves Subtil for organizing the event as well as an excellent dinner afterwards. As a result of the seminar, I had the chance to talk with other scholars there, including Dr. Alexandra Dias Santos (also affiliated with the University of Lisbon), Dr. Carla Ganito (of the Catholic University of Lisbon), and Dr. Rosário Durão, the editor of Connexions: International Professional Communications Journal.

And since we spent the weekend in Lisbon, there was also time to do some sightseeing, including the Discoveries Monument shown below, documenting the 500th anniversary of Prince Henry the Navigator.
