EGENIS seminar: "Intercultural dialogue and learning across difference in traditional fishing communities using the partial overlaps methodology" Charbel El-hani (University Federal da Bahia)

Egenis seminar series

I will describe the partial overlaps methodology as an approach to deal with ontological, epistemological, ethical and political issues related to knowledge integration, by taking a via media between overly optimistic and pessimistic views on the possibility of integrating different knowledge systems. A central topic will be how learning may take place through partial overlaps, both when there is overlap between knowledge systems and when they diverge from each other. I will illustrate both the partial overlaps methodology and some mutual learning process from fieldwork in artisanal fishing traditional communities from Northeast Brazil.
