New Book on Intercultural Discourse

26. Sep. 2012

Prof. Gita Dharampal-Frick, Prof. Monika Kirloskar-Steinbach and Dr. Minou Friele have edited a new book on intercultural discourse. This volume is designed as an introductory work and discusses key terms and contested concepts from the field of interculturality.

“Intercultural Discourse-Key and Contested Concepts“ comprises various articles on key terms from the field of intercultural discourse such as multiculturalism, cosmopolitanism, tolerance, authenticity or difference. These concepts play a crucial role, both in scholarly debates on interculturality as well as in public debates of modern societies. In short contributions, the authors clarify these contested concepts both for scholars as well as for members of the lay public who are interested in intercultural communication and cooperation. Taking into consideration diverse social, political and historical contexts, the book aims to initiate debates on interculturality as well as interdisciplinarity.

The bi-lingual volume is edited by Prof. Gita Dharampal-Frick, Prof. Monika Kirloskar-Steinbach, and Dr. Minou Friele and published by Karl Alber in 2012. It brings together international authors who have made salient contributions to intercultural debates. 

Prof. Gita Dharampal-Frick is coordinator of the Cluster’s research projects A5 “Nationising the Dynasty”, B1 “Satire”, B8 “Rethinking Gender” and C2 “Large Dams”. She is Head of the Department of History at the South Asia Institute at Heidelberg University.

There is a discount available for those interested in purchasing the book. For details, please contact Prof. Gita Dharampal-Frick
