Witteborn, S. (2021). Migración. (Trans. D. M. Ordóñez). Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, 16. Available from: https://centerforinterculturaldialogue.files.wordpress.com/2021/03/kc16-migration_spanish.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.

Harvard U: Postdocs in Migration and the Humanities (USA)

PostdocsPostdoctoral Fellowships in connection with the Center’s Andrew W. Mellon Foundation seminar on the topic of migration and the humanities for 2021-22, Mahindra Humanities Center, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA. Deadline: November 6, 2020.

Migration plays as critical a role in the moral imagination of the humanities as it does in shaping the activist vision of humanitarianism and human rights. Too often, the humanities are summoned merely as witnesses whose primary aesthetic and moral values lie in their illustrative powers of empathy and evocation. Yet the intellectual formation of the humanities—their very conception of the nature of meaning, knowledge, and morals—is deeply resonant with the displacement of values and the revision of norms that shape narratives of migrant lives.

MHC welcomes applications from scholars in all fields whose work innovatively engages with migration and the humanities. In addition to pursuing their own research projects, fellows will be core participants in the bi-weekly seminar meetings for both academic terms of the fellowship. Other participants will include faculty and graduate students from Harvard and other universities in the region, and occasional visiting speakers.

Ilse Herath-Schugsties Profile

ProfilesIlse Herath-Schugsties is a Psychologist (Friedrich Alexander Universität, Erlangen, Germany) and Psychoanalytical Psychotherapist (Alfred Adler Institut, DGIP) who focuses on Children and Youth.

Ilse Herath-Schugsties

Herath-Schugsties spent her whole working life in Munich. After working in a Social Psychiatric Ambulance and ten years at a Children’s Home for Remedial Education as psychologist and manager, she moved to an institution of Educational Guidance and Counseling in a socially disadvantaged district where she cooperated with different educational institutions, e.g. crèches, kindergartens or schools for more than 25 years.

The rate of migrants is especially high in this part of the city. Very often they are refugees and their families, in part traumatised by war, with different residence status. Due to this it is not unusual to have children from up to thirty different nations in kindergartens and schools, and classes without native speaking Germans. Herath-Schugsties started a successful project in cooperation with some kindergartens to empower the migrant parents, e.g. by reflecting cultural differences in bringing up children and in family life.

Through individual psychological counselling and open courses for intercultural dialogue she spread information using handouts or visual material as the basis, encouraging confidence in intercultural learning and communication to help them adapt to a different way of living.
Media and communication have been important “ingredients” for this project as well as in the rest of her work. Although retired she still works as case supervisor or speaks at parents’ evenings for those multicultural crèches and kindergartens .
