The Predicament of Intercultural Dialogue

in Cultural Sociology, Vol. 6, Issue 1, pp. 27-44

This article examines the flexibility of the concept of intercultural dialogue with regard to the challenges posed by an increasing multicultural European Union. A European culture has been born out of the 1989 collapse of the Cold war and globalisation which has made the EU vulnerable. The author argues that the concepts of culture, identity and difference are essential in framing intercultural dialogue in the post Cold war globalised context.

Perspectives on Cultural Diversity

Meinhof, U. H. and A. Triandafyllidou (eds.). Transcultural Europe: Cultural Policy in a Changing Europe

This article is from a book which tries to answer the questions of the issues that cultural policy-makers are facing and how cultural policy can respond to cultural and social realities at metropolitan, national and European levels. An interdisciplinary research team explores the evolution of cultural policy and suggests new theoretical approaches. Using the examples of Berlin, London, Paris, Rome, Ljubljana, Vienna and Belgrade, the researchers question the relations between cultural diversity, cultural policy and immigration.

Differing Diversities

Cultural diversity, in all its forms, is posing a profound challenge to traditional formulations of cultural policy, and to our understanding of the public interests served by this policy. In most countries the artistic and cultural landscape has not evolved to reflect the realities of a changed social landscape. This rift threatens to undermine the legitimacy of cultural institutions and the public policy that supports them.

Interculturalism in Contemporary Theatre

In: Intercultural Performance reader, Patrice Parvis (ed.)

"In this essay, the semiologist and theatre historian Erika Fischer-Lichte, Professor at the University of Mayence, provides an overview of cultural exchanges in theatre. She retraces the origins of these practices, making reference to their principal point of axis since Goethe’s notion of Weltliteratur, then focuses on the appropriation of forms and myths, originally from the West, by African and Japanese artists.

Intercultural Dialogue: Creating the New

Paper at the Arts and Local Government Conference (24-27 June 2007)

This paper explores the strengths and weaknesses of multiculturalism. It also advocates ‘third spaces’ where people can exchange about difference and how immigration should be viewed as an asset by cities. ‘Policy implications will be drawn on ways to facilitate the public presence of diverse groups and reflect this in the local economy, valorise multiple identities in new professional roles, spread intercultural literacy and competence in institutions and develop intercultural criteria for selecting, funding and evaluating projects.’ (p.1)

Rethinking the Social Impact of the Arts

International Journal of Cultural Policy, 13 (2), 135-51

"The paper presents a critical discussion of the current debate over the social impacts of the arts in the UK. It argues that the accepted understanding of the terms of the debate is rooted in a number of assumptions and beliefs that are rarely questioned.
