TC0003: Dr Damian Spiteri – The road to intercultural education – Book review.
Multicultural education and its processes of intercultural engagement are considered by some as one of the main steps toward “integration” but there are many barriers that students, lecturers and society have to overcome in order to successfully tackle those obstacles (or even have the agenda made acceptable to significant parts of society).
Dr Damian Spiteri from the University of York is about to publish a book called ‘Multiculturalism, Higher Education and Intercultural Communication’.
Dr Spiteri met with Astehmari Batekun and explained the rationale behind his research which is grounded in his work with Black students from Africa who were asylum seekers and the local population of typically White European Maltese students. We had a very insightful reasoning on many critical issues and factors connected to the idea of intercultural multiculturalism.

TC0001: ‘African Spirituality’? Justice and Racism with CSI Peter – Part 1
This is the launch episode of The Context , a show for the exploration of social and political events respecting and opening up “the context”; systemic racism – local, national & global. With deeper knowledge we may replace racism with justice, if indeed that is the right thing to do. Astehmari caught up with CSI Peter an independent “crime scene investigator” of racism.
We had a great reasoning on the importance of the Word, in particular we explored revising the term ‘African Spirituality’, the root meaning of the word justice and how racism connects to the flow.
