Postdigital Intercultures

Stefano Pasta, Davide Zoletto

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This contribution introduces the topic of this special issue (Postdigital Intercultures) as an interdisciplinary field of research and intervention in which pedagogical-intercultural and media-educational reflection intertwine. Through a systemic approach, this enables a better understanding of the innovations that are currently emerging in social phenomena and educational processes. After briefly reconstructing the historical connections between media, technology and migration, the contribution explores, on the one hand, the ways in which the contemporary rethinking of media education impacts on intercultural reflection and, on the other hand, those with which the importance of the interweaving with digital media has emerged in intercultural pedagogical research. The contribution then dwells on how unprecedented scenarios of research and intervention have emerged from the intersection of these processes and dimensions and call for a broadening of our traditional “research imaginary” also in the field of pedagogy. The contribution concludes with the identification of some research trajectories that have hybridised the pedagogical-intercultural and media-educational perspectives within the Italian context with the presentation of the articles featured in the special issue.
