e-Laboratory Multilingualism and Multiculturalism in Digital World[edit | edit source]

Challenges from 2014 to 2019[edit | edit source]

The E-Lab Multiculturalism and Multilingualism in Digital World (CulturalLab) aims to investigate different possibilities to represent, preserve and exchange local cultures and local languages in digital world. The perspective of complex systems is fruitful for the understanding of the experience that we propose in CulturalLab. Through CulturaLab we aim to foster Cultural and Linguistic Diversity in an academic program, understanding that the beginning of XXI century in Brazil is a historical moment, where important affirmative action policies approved in education create an optimum moment to develop programs that treasure diversity of cultural and linguistic expressions (cf. Brazilian Federal Laws 10.639/03, 11.645/08 and 12.711/12). This proposal is anchored in an international network in South hemisphere with nine higher education institutions in seven countries that use Portuguese language as academic language, which will be used to strengthen the creation, production, archiving and distribution of access to cultural and academic knowledge in a perspective of critical epistemology towards cultural studies, based on the theory of Self Organization proposed by Michel Debrun. Due to historical factors and to academic tradition, Portuguese Speaking countries in post-colonial situation do not have an established discussion on multicultural and multilingual values. This project aims to install in Portuguese speaking academic set a debate on critical epistemology through creation of assets that shall seed the debate on cultural studies and epistemological criticism in Portuguese language. For that we shall 1) create a research group to promote critical epistemological reflection, what might allow the integration of local cultures in the construction of knowledge in academic environment; 2) exchange information and create collaborative knowledge through digital culture among partner universities; 3) to form individuals to be able to integrate local values and local world vision in academic practices; and 4) promote the paradigm of the knowledge society through digital culture. This E-Lab aims to be the first example in Portuguese language to meet cross-country cultural and linguistic diversity in top research in humanities.
