07 SES 08 B, Collaborative Roundtable on Intercultural Professionalism as Researchers
We, as convenors of Network 7, want to continue in this special network session our longlasting conversation on our own intercultural professionalism as researchers in the field of Social Justice and Intercultural Education. Intercultural professionalism is informed but an ethical and political stance. It is relational and value-based. We would like to have an exchange with netwotk 7 participants on this topic. During this sessions we want to have a dialogue on questions such as:
- Why do you research what you are researching?
- Is this and how influenced by, connected to your historically and culturally situated selves?
- Is this and how influenced by the current socio-cultural context you are working in?
- What is the personal aim of your research?
- What important choices you made are you proud of?
- What important choices do you regret?
We were inspired to start this dialogue by the book edited by Carl. A Grant (1999) on multicultural research in which he presents the views and perspectives of 18 distinguished researchers and scholars on what guides them during their research and writing in the eara of equity, social justice and power.
Our conversation is two decades later, situated in Europe and focused on intercultural education and social justice. After a short introduction we'll engage in our horizontally organized exchange.
