Confirmed speakers: Alex Gillespie, Ernestine Gordijn, Douglas Hollan, Nils Holtug,
Alba Montes Sánchez, Harriet Over, Olli Pyyhtinen, Philippe Rochat, Thomas Szanto and Kirsten Thisted.

The aim of the conference is to explore the interrelations between shared cultural context and interpersonal understanding from an interdisciplinary perspective. Some of the questions to be considered include: How do shared cultural contexts and in-group/out-group dynamics enable and influence different forms of interpersonal understanding? Conversely, what is the impact of interpersonal understanding on shared cultural contexts? In this regard, is there a specific role for empathy, sympathy, and/or mutual recognition? Furthermore, how do processes of stereotyping and typification contribute to our understanding of the interrelations between interpersonal understanding and shared cultural context?
