Why is Cross-Cultural Conversation (CCC) Crucial in Our Time: A New Way of Learning, a free IRAS Webinar
Dr. Anindita Balslev begins her presentation with the title question, focusing on national and international concerns. She outlines why the question is important for individuals and public policy. She frames her argument in terms of personal identity that all thinking persons must answer for themselves, pointing out that one’s answer is crucial for mental health and cultural understanding. She addresses the crisis in our time regarding the unequal distribution of technology and accessibility to emerging possibilities for individuals, communities, and nations. She then points out that collaboration for meeting the many issues we face depends on a cross-cultural conversation if we avoid sinking back into new forms of tribalism. And finally, she sums up her position with the claim that science and religion – and the dialogue between the advocates for each – must be at the heart of this cross-cultural conversation if we are to derive full benefits of the emerging technologies for the well-being of all people on the planet.
