In this talk we problematise a dialogical perspective for Interculturality. In doing so we present an innovative theoretical lens to (re)think assumptions, practices and theories associated with language and intercultural communication. The talk is timely given the calls within the filed for epistemological plurality and diversity in relation to issues of social justice. In addressing contemporary issues, the talk will be of interest to scholars and practitioners working within language education, intercultural communication and related fields.

Important: this event will take place over Zoom and is open to anyone interested in intercultural communication. You must register to participate. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
