KC19 Multiculturalism Translated into Greek

Key Concepts in ICDContinuing translations of Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, today I am posting KC#19: Multiculturalism, which Polina Golovátina-Mora and Raúl Alberto Mora wrote for publication in English in 2014, and which Anastasia Karakitsou  has 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.

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.

CID Poster #10: Multiculturalism vs. Social Cohesion

CID PostersThis is a bonus poster, designed by Linda J. de Wit even though she has completed her time as CID intern. This is the second poster to use the Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue as the source. The content here combines KC19: Multiculturalism with KC79: Social Cohesion.

CID Poster #10: Multiculturalism vs Social CohesionJust in case anyone wants to cite this poster, the following would be the recommended format:

Center for Intercultural Dialogue. (2017). Multiculturalism vs. Social Cohesion. CID Posters, 10. Available from:
https://centerforinterculturaldialogue.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/multiculturalism-social-cohesion.png

As with other series, if you wish to contribute an original contribution, please send an email before starting any work to receive approval, to minimize inadvertent duplication, and to learn about technical requirements. As is the case with other CID Publications, posters should be created initially in English. Given that translations of the Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue have received so many views, anyone who wishes to translate their own poster into another language (or two) is invited to provide that as well. If you want to volunteer to translate someone else’s poster into a language in which you are fluent, send in a note before starting, to receive approval and to confirm no one else is working on the same one.

https://centerforinterculturaldialogue.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/key-concept-multiculturalism.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.

Susana Martínez Guillem

RESEARCHER PROFILE

Susana Martínez Guillem (Ph.D., University of Colorado-Boulder) is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication and Journalism at the University of New Mexico, USA. She is also affiliate faculty at the Latin American and Iberian Institute, and the European Studies Program at UNM.

Dr. Martínez Guillem’s work focuses on the interactions between cultural practices and social processes. More specifically, she is interested in exploring how particular understandings of notions such as “immigration,” “(anti)racism,” “tolerance” or “multiculturalism” both reflect and help to (re)create our material conditions. She is currently working on different projects examining how beliefs and practices related to these contemporary keywords are embedded in practices such as law making, public television programming, and social movements. Currently, she is exploring these dynamics as they unfold in the contexts of the European Union and Spain. Her goal is to expand the locus of this research in order to explore (dis)similarities across the Western world, as well as how these compare to non-Western realities.

Dr. Martínez Guillem is convinced that the best scholarship comes out of grappling with productive tensions among different methods, theories and disciplines. In her research, she draw from the Discourse Studies as well as the Cultural Studies traditions, together with scholarship on race, ethnicity and whiteness across the humanities and the social sciences. She finds these theoretical and practical intersections necessary as she tries to develop a research agenda that aims at approaching complex phenomena in a holistic way.
