Exploring Multiculturalism and Interculturality
Issued: Wed, 08 Nov 2017 14:04:00 GMT
Dr. Claire Bynner, Research Associate in Public Service Reform, recently attended the 2017 Universitas 21 Early Career Researcher Workshop, hosted by the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in Santiago, Chile. The theme was 'Interculturality and Multiculturalism: The Challenges for Changing Societies.' The delegates represented a series of disciplines, ranging from neuroscience to engineering, health and care services, sociology, psychology, and linguistics. As a way of sharing the rich conversations from this workshop, Dr. Bynner and Dr Lavinia Hirsu are planning a workshop for early career researchers on multiculturalism and interculturality to shape a future research agenda. The workshop will share some of the key themes and conversations from Chile and connect researchers with local stakeholders. The event is scheduled for Tuesday 16 January, 2:30-4:30 p.m. Further information will be available shortly. If you are an early career researcher (within 8 years from earning your PhD) and have an interest in these themes, please come along to the event.
