In this book we wish to find a new way of talking about, connecting and operationalising the third space, narratives, positioning, and interculturality. Our purpose is to shake established views in what we consider to be an urgent quest for dealing with prejudice.

We therefore seek to draw attention to the following:

How Centre structures and large culture boundaries are sources of prejudice

How deCentred intercultural threads address prejudice by dissolving these boundaries

How, in everyday small culture formation on the go, the cultural and the intercultural are observable and become indistinguishable

How agency, personal and grand narratives, discourses, and positioning become visible in unexpected ways

How we researchers also bring competing narratives in making sense of the intercultural

How third spaces are discordant and uncomfortable places in which all of us must struggle to achieve interculturality

This book is therefore a journey of discovery with each chapter building on the previous ones. While throughout there are particular empirical events (interviews, reconstructed ethnographic accounts and research diary entries) with their own detailed analyses and insights, they connect back to discussion in previous chapters.
