Transforming Education Research into Classroom Practices: The dual perspective of interculturality, Cultural studies and innovation in teacher education and in school. What is expected of a ‘good’ interculturalist in education? In English language teaching intercultural competence has a prominent role and is undergoing continuous debate and exploration. The discursive approach to intercultural learning implied in the concept interculturality (Dervin & Risager, 2015) needs further exploration in teacher education and in school. This presentation unfolds a Cultural studies approach to intercultural encounters and interculturality based on critical intercultural communication and critical media literacy (Svarstad, 2016, 2018). It offers practical examples of teaching sequences in teacher education as well as examples of student teachers’ innovative approaches to ‘tomorrow’s good interculturalists’ in school.
