Kulturen im Dialog III – Culture in Dialogo III – Cultures in Dialogue III

Drittes JungakademikerInnen-Forum in Südtirol- Terzo Forum per Neolaureati in Alto Adige- Third Forum for Young Graduates in South Tyrol


Edited By Annemarie Profanter

JungakademikerInnen unterschiedlicher Fachgebiete haben sich mit der Idee, den interdisziplinären sowie interkulturellen wissenschaftlichen Dialog zu fördern, ans Werk gemacht und setzen sich in ihren Beiträgen mit internationalen Fragen beziehungsweise regionalen Themen auseinander. Um den Dialog auch über Sprachgrenzen hinweg anzuregen, sind alle Beiträge mit je einem italienischen, deutschen und englischsprachigen Abstract versehen. Der deskriptive Anspruch dieses Sammelwerks besteht darin, verschiedene Teilaspekte des Phänomens einer multikulturellen Gesellschaft in Südtirol aufzuzeigen. Der konstruktive Anspruch dieses Werks fußt auf einem übergeordneten Ziel: dem Schaffen von Momenten der Begegnung, des intersubjektiven und interdisziplinären Dialogs und erfordert die theoretische Fundierung von praktischen Formen dialogischer Problemanalyse und -bewältigung.
Con l’idea di promuovere il dialogo interdisciplinare come anche quello scientifico interculturale neolaureati di diverse facoltà si sono dati da fare e trattano nelle loro opere questioni internazionali ossia temi regionali. Per promuovere il dialogo anche oltre le barriere linguistiche i contributi si presentano con abstract in lingua inglese, tedesca e italiana. La pretesa descrittiva di questa raccolta di temi sta nel esplicare diversi aspetti del fenomeno di una società multiculturale in Alto Adige. La pretesa costruttiva di questa opera si basa su di un fine superiore: il creare di momenti d’incontro, di un dialogo intersoggettivo e interdisciplinare e richiede una base teorica di forme pratiche di analisi e soluzione dialogica di problemi.
In an aim to promote an interdisciplinary and intercultural scientific dialog young graduates of diverse disciplines have tackled the task of intensive investigation into «cultures in dialogue» as it relates to issues of international as well as regional relevance. In an attempt to motivate dialogue across language barriers all contributions provide abstracts in the three languages: German, Italian and English. The descriptive part of the collected edition provides an overview of diverse aspects of the phenomenon of a multicultural society in South Tyrol. The constructive aspect of the volume pursues the following goal: it creates moments of encounter, of intersubjective as well as interdisciplinary dialogue and lays the basis for a theoretical foundation of practical forms of dialogic problem analysis and problem solving.

The world is changing rapidly and cultures are being forced to evolve in order to keep pace with contemporary global needs. In Europe, migration issues have been on the forefront of the political agenda for the last decade. Thus, the rapid growth of immigrant populations as part of the civil society in all European countries was not a result of a stately and ongoing process of expansion. It emerged as one facet of migration flows challenging the borders of the Union due to international conflicts, African migration to Europe and the collapse of the Soviet Union. These developments are having a profound effect on the functioning of European welfare states.

Historically Italy has been a crossroad of cultural interaction for the last three thousand years. Throughout history and in contemporary times this area has hosted numerous populations. The societal and social reality in Italy is undergoing far-reaching changes due to this migration phenomenon. Until the end of the eighties of the last century Italy was primarily an emigration country. Yet from the nineties a rapid transition from a country of emigration to one of immigration took place. Immigration is a non-linear, complex process, which occurs in all parts of the Italian peninsula and is reflected, on the one hand, by a growing population of immigrants, and on the other hand, the diversity of countries of origin of those immigrants. Thus the numbers of immigrants increased from approx. 650,000 in 1992 (Istat...
