Conference – Diachronic Interculturality

Among studies in interculturality, perspectives taking into account the historical construction conditions of cultural otherness are still rare. However, if the temporal dimension is taken into account new fields of analysis are opened up that help better define the concept of interculturality. The conference focusses on this field in order to strengthen the connection between this largely cultural-studies-oriented research field and aesthetic and genuinely literary studies questions.

 

 

 

The conference report was published in Cornejo, Renata: Diachrone Interkulturalität, Tagung der Universität Luxemburg, 17. – 19. November 2016. In: Cornejo, Renata und Antoic Thomas u. a.

Whilst there are numerous literary studies on migration literature and transculturally oriented contemporary literature, analyses taking into account the historical construction conditions of cultural otherness are still rare. However, the term ‘interculturality’ only seems to reach its full potential once the temporal dimension is included. This three-day conference (17-19/11/2016) therefore aims to (further) develop the diachronic and historical examination of interculturality phenomena and to better define interculturality – still all too frequently an undifferentiated concept. Furthermore, it aims strengthening the connection between this largely cultural-studies-oriented research field and aesthetic and genuinely literary studies questions. This conference, organised as part of the ‘Diachronic Interculturality’ research project, will take place at the University of Luxembourg with the support of the Key Area MIS.
