The workshop is part of a joint research project by the Universität Potsdam, Germany, and the Universidad de Costa Rica, Cost Rica, with financial support from the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft).

Introduction

This event is both a self-standing, international conference, and, at the same time, the second of two joint meetings by scholars from Germany, Costa Rica, and Honduras in order to further develop the combined research efforts. The first meeting took place in San José, Costa Rica, in late 2012.

The discussed project “Convivencia en la diferencia” seeks to analyze and better understand the intricate notion of conviviality in difference, most likely one of the most urgent issues of contemporary societies in Central America and the Caribbean in the 21st century. This is especially true as these (like all) societies are facing the challenges of a new phase of accelerated globalization, in which matters of peaceful conviviality in difference have come to a crucial point.

The conference aims at further developing an international research project that explores the cultural dimensions implied in the notion of conviviality. This will be done on three levels: theoretical framing, (trans)disciplinary methodology, and, finally, spatiotemporal specification of the phenomena to be studied.

The workshop was organized by the Centro de Investigaciones Históricas de América Central (CIHAC), Universidad de Costa Rica

Researchers from different universities of Costa Rica, Honduras, and Germany met during a two-day workshop (11/30-12/01/2012) in San José, Costa Rica, to outline the roadmap for a joint international research project to be financed by the DFG (German Research Foundation). The workshop was both of strategical and academic nature, with several presentations of individual and group research activities by different participants.

With several internal deadlines to further specify the character of the research project “Convivencia en la diferencia”, the workshop participants agreed on the terms for the second meeting, this time in Potsdam, Germany, to be held from July 4, to July 6, 2013.

Introduction (in Spanish, longer Version)

El taller procurará analizar la problemática de la convivencia en la diferencia, temática que es probablemente uno de los desafíos más profundos que se presenta a las sociedades Centroamericanas y del Caribe del siglo XXI. Si bien, puede argumentarse que la convivencia es un eterno problema de la condición humana, omnipresente a lo largo de la historia e igualmente sin soluciones definitivas; no obstante, sigue siendo vigente, más aún hoy cuando se vive una nueva fase de globalización acelerada, donde este tema no se puede dejar de plantear ya que de sus posibilidades de solución dependerá, en gran parte, la supervivencia de la especie humana.
