KC 70 Verstehen by Raul Mora

Mora, R. A. (2015). Verstehen. Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, 70. Available from:

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.

LSLP Micro-Papers

The LSLP Micro-Papers are a series of conceptual, one-page papers intended to introduce key elements of literacy and how they fit within our frameworks. This series, edited by CID affiliated researcher Dr. Raúl A. Mora, drew inspiration from our Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue series. These micro-papers are authored by student researchers and other affiliated researchers from the Literacies in Second Languages Project at Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana in Medellín, Colombia, as a space to promote their research in the field of alternative and 21st century literacies.

We invite you to check out both the LSLP Micro-Papers and the Literacies in Second Languages Project website.
