From Anthropology, we Insist In the Invitation to assume the knowledge of alterity as a possibility and not as anomaly. In a violent and excluding context with all the risk derived from modernity. And from the Communication, we center our

what is at stake is the capacity to give including dimension to public aspects.
Considering what happened on September 11/01 in New York as maximum expression of irruption of East

challenge the assumptions on which multiculturalism and interculture are based. In this context, media
act is a representation producers, a role in which they show their classifying as stigmatizing power under
the appearance of technological neutral mediating.
