The dynamic world that we live in thrives on a multi and intercultural plasticity. As we inhabit complex and ever-changing societies, we need to recognize the multilayered meanings of movement, exchange and communication, as well as the particularities of social, political, economic, and cultural relationships, while enhancing our human abilities of understanding the other and her/his identity.
Reaching towards this goal, the Centre for Intercultural Studies works to provide theoretical and practical spaces for dialogue and multiple recognition. Consequently, this International Conference on Interculturalism and Multiculturalism (ICIM 2019) aims to create a wide-ranging space for the debate of ideas, concerns and work methods on the contemporary intercultural journey. This approach to the diversity and to the transits implied in the concept of ‘intercultural’ opens new paths to examine the motivations, characteristics and conventions of cultural interactions in their perpetual movement, devoid of spatial or temporal borders, in a dangerous but stimulating indefinition of limits.
With a sound eleven year-old record of international conferences and publications, the Centre for Intercultural Studies has got the venue, the know-how, a recognized academic tradition in the field, an active team, and the will to attract researchers from all over the world to Porto, Europe’s best destination.

A selection of papers actually presented at the Conference will be considered for a peer-reviewed international publication with ISBN.
