Researching Digital Interculturality
An interdisciplinary project strengthening intercultural communication scholarship
As cultural boundaries blur and virtual and physical spaces merge, interculturality and digitalization mould our everyday world. We’re convinced that these dual concepts should be viewed together, as they are frequently deeply entangled in various contexts. This is what our research project ReDICo is dedicated to: Researching Digital Interculturality Co-operatively. Our vision is of a scholarly Intercultural Communication, informed by the perspectives of a critical and culturally-aware interdisciplinary Internet Studies. ReDICo also seeks to be an inclusive and environmentally-conscious research network, connecting academics and non-academics world-wide via our platform on the Glocal Campus, “Digital Interculturality Research Hub“, and a number of co-hosted virtual conferences (E-Co-Conferences). We therefore don’t just study Digital Interculturality, we also actually do it!

We hope that you all had a good start into the new year! In the ReDICo team, we are already working at full speed on various tasks that we are now tackling in what is already the third project year and, thus, the second half of the project.
There’s snow on the ground here in Germany, the evenings are dark, and it’s time to look back at what we did in 2022. Maybe with your involvement? We would also like to look towards the brighter evenings that are coming and what’s planned for next year.
Winter is coming, and we are looking back on an inspiring conference summer. This year our first big conference “Lifewide Learning – Transformations and New Connections in Postdigital Societies” took place in the Dornburg Castles near Jena. For those who want to take a little trip back in time, we have created a short film in which we talk to participants.
