The debate about colour naming in 19th century German philology
The Debate about Colour Naming in 19th Century German Philology is comprised of eleven essays illustrating the intensity of interest in colour naming and categorisation that arose in nineteenth century Germany.

Bob Elsen, Ignace Pollet, Patrick Develtere Compass for intercultural partnerships
a thought provoking book to deploy the integration of cultures as a source of welfare and tolerance in a glocalising world

a disturbing love
Plagues of locusts, drought and ebola. In Africa homosexuals are getting the blame for everything. It's open season. Homosexuality is called 'un-African', 'in direct conflict with its own distinctive culture', a 'western disease'. What's the motivation behind those leaders who are fighting to keep their continent 'morally pure'? There's another story. More and more African gays and lesbians are coming out of the closet. Equal rights activism has become a reality and a passionate debate is raging....

New multicultural identities in Europe
religion and ethnicity in secular societies

Qué tienen en común un montón de leyendas, el color verde y una de las ciudades más bonitas de España?

Aquí la holandesa Marielle...
