Sobre os Autores / About the Authors

Introdução / Introduction

           This book Comunicação, Representações e Práticas Interculturais: Uma Perspectiva Global / Intercultural Communication, Representations and Practices: A Global Approach is the result of the works presented at the II International Conference on Intercultural Studies, organized by the Centre for Intercultural Studies (CEI) of the Polytechnic Institute of Porto’s School of Accounting and Management (ISCAP), in May 2011.

In December 2008, the Center for Intercultural Studies warily hosted its I International Conference on Intercultural Studies. The outcome largely surpassed the organization’s boldest expectations. Nearly one hundred delegates met at Iscap for a one-day conference. But CEI’s dedicated team of lecturers, researchers, trainees, and students seems not to have learned its lesson. In May 2011, nearly 3 hundred delegates gathered again at ISCAP for a 3 day conference. More than 2 hundred papers, 3 plenary sessions, 30 countries, 5 continents, and 2 book launches made up the Program of the II International Conference on Intercultural Studies, and still we did not have the time for a proper social program.

And now we finally see the outcome of such bold venture, with the publication of Comunicação, Representações e Práticas Interculturais: Uma Perspectiva Global / Intercultural Communication, Representations and Practices: A Global Approach. This multilingual CD-ROM edition collects 47 essays by authors from Portugal, China, Finland, Turkey, Canada, Brazil, Iran, Spain, Italy, Slovenia, Argentina, Romania, Lithuania, Japan, Australia, Ireland, the United States of America, and France. These essays are organized in five thematic sections on: Intercultural Communication; Intercultural Representations; Intercultural Practices of Everyday Live; Intercultural Travels and Narratives; Intercultural Thought and Comparative Law.

“Intercultural Studies” is an intentionally imprecise concept, such is the uniqueness and variety of its potential meaning. The term ‘intercultural’ can be interpreted in countless ways and because of this, it has become fashionable. ‘Intercultural’ is often taken to suggest a gathering of scholars, whose origins are more or less exotic, discussing controversial subjects, preferably bearing peculiar names and dressed to match. But in these pages, the ‘intercultural’ is understood as a movement, transit, travel, as a dynamic between cultures. The contemporary intercultural journey is a global journey, a circumnavigation at the speed of light. This approach to the ‘intercultural’ underwrites all the comings and goings, the transmission and reception of information implicit in the dialogue, in the diversity and in the movement that ‘inter’ suggests. This is why we examine the motivations, characteristics and implications of cultural interactions in their perpetual progress, devoid of spatial or temporal borders, in a dangerous but stimulating indefinition of limits.

In this way we cross the first great border to intercultural transit – the frontier created by the concept of culture itself – avoiding the commonplace notion of the intercultural as simply ‘us’ versus ‘them’, and steering clear of the fundamental error of an ‘interculturality’ that ignores the diversity and dynamism contained in its own definition. Conferences and books like these generate an interdisciplinary dialogue between fields that have traditionally ignored each other, because the work developed by CEI is also intercultural at its source and subjects, not only in the objects that are examined. Because we do not fear the alterity that, after all, we propose to study. 

The 3 days of the Conference and the many hundred pages of this book function as a sort of third space, to quote from Homi Bhabha. A third space for hybridity, subversion, transgression, blasphemy, even heresy, sometimes. Hybridity – and cultural translation, which Bhabha regards as a synonym for hybridity – is politically subversive. Hybridity is the space where all binary divisions and antagonisms, typical for modernist political concepts, including the old opposition between theory and practice, research and politics, do not work anymore. They do not work here either.

Both the Conference and the book there engendered are places where the ‘overlapping of cultures’ occurs, which is the characteristic of a site of cultural translation. Translation can be viewed as a reinterpretation, as a constant repositioning of signs within existing orders. Instead of arbitrary attributions of meaning, here, context-dependent interpretations are made, which disintegrate previously fixed assumptions and, in their continual creation of uncertainties, produce new hypothesis, theories and explanations.

The sort of cultural translation that takes place in these pages wishes to function as a “return of the excluded”, to quote from the American feminist Judith Butler, pushing limits, bringing about social change and opening new spaces for emancipation. Because, for Bhabha, as well as for the Portuguese sociologist Boaventura de Sousa Santos, the potential for change is located at the peripheries. Peripheries marked by hybridity, where the ‘new arrivals’ (‘new arrivals’ or ‘excluded’ like the Portuguese polytechnics, like this yet so young Centre for Intercultural Studies, like this very book and so many of its contributors) are able to use subversion to undermine the strategies of the powerful, regardless of whom they might be. And I truly believe that we have successfully done so.

Em Maio de 2011, o Centro de Estudos Interculturais (CEI) do Instituto de Contabilidade e Administração do Instituto Politécnico do Porto (ISCAP-IPP), organizou aquela que viria a ser a sua mais importante conferência até ao presente: o II Congresso Internacional de Estudos Interculturais. Este grande evento contou com a participação de mais de duzentos oradores vindos dos quatro cantos do mundo para partilhar os seus conhecimentos e experiências de investigação científica. Este livro traz a público algumas das apresentações feitas durante esse evento. É uma forma de materializar toda a experiência aí trocada, algo que acredito que tenha sido muito especial não só para os membros do CEI, mas também para todos aqueles que tiveram a oportunidade de estar presentes.

Infelizmente, nessa data eu ainda não integrava a equipa do CEI, por tal não participei no Congresso. Não obstante, graças à atribuição da bolsa de integração na investigação do SantanderTotta/Instituto Politécnico do Porto, tive a oportunidade de participar na publicação deste livro, na qualidade de co-editora. Posso assim afirmar que esta foi uma experiência profundamente enriquecedora, tanto a nível académico e profissional, como pessoal.
