Conceptual and methodological issues
24 November 2017
Research is very often an intercultural encounter. For students and scholars of Arts and Humanities subjects, researching interculturally requires a critical and creative understanding of the contested concept of culture, the ‘inter-’ aspects of cultural encounters and researchers’ own positions. This workshop will focus on the core conceptual and methodological issues of researching interculturally and is designed to create a space for thinking through and about interculturality both critically and creatively.

Contemporary research involves working across many different cultural boundaries. These boundaries are ethnic, disciplinary, professional, industrial, workplace and community-based. Each of these domains has its own cultures, discourses and practices. The successful twenty-first century researcher must develop the intercultural knowledge and skills to operate sensitively in this complex research arena (Manathunga 2009:175).
The workshop is coordinated by Professor Zhu Hua (Birkbeck College, University of London), Dr Bojana Petric (Birkbeck College, University of London), Dr Alessia Cogo (Goldsmiths College, University of London) and Professor Maria Roth-Lauret (University of Sussex).
Funding for this event is provided by the Consortium for Humanities and the Arts South-East England (CHASE).
