Abstract

The recent turn in intercultural studies demonstrates an increasing concern with contingency, precarity and fractures over the search for reliable indicators of competence and measurable outcomes. In order to harness this potential emerging in the intercultural field, I aim to engage theoretically with the notion of otherness from a posthumanist perspective. Employing the notions of difference and becoming through biomythography and the ‘fusion of outsider identities’ I argue in this paper that rhizomatic subjectivities as sites of desire and becoming can shift the understanding of the intercultural beyond the binary self and other .
