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!
