Inter-Cultural Dialogues from a horizontal perspective

Intercultural dialogues not only mean analyzing social problems from different cultural perspectives by bringing together a diverse range of social scientists but also radically changing the traditional structure of knowledge production that has been disproportionately centered on the scientific point of view. Social Sciences are bound to move paradigms, but what should be its new model? The era of horizontal dialogues is coming to decolonize knowledge production.    

This podcast brings out ideas presented in this session of “At the Cutting Edges of Knowledge Production: Borders and Black Holes in Academic Dialogue”, an international conference held by CALAS, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), and The Bielefeld University in late 2021.
