Interculturality is a very difficult concept to define. A dictionary definition usually refers to it as something that takes place between cultures. So far so good! But the problematic part lies in having to inspect what we mean by ‘culture’. Merriem-Webster online dictionary includes a number of definitions from developing oneself through education to acquiring refined taste in fine arts and other intellectual pursuits to cultivating living organism in the sense of bacterial ‘culture’. It also takes culture to be the knowledge, attitudes, values and behaviour that a group of people share. Two American anthropologists compiled around 164 definitions of the word culture back in the 1950s, which indicates the highly contested nature of the term.
