AbstractThe encounter of peoples is a phenomenon that characterizes the history of social interaction and is fundamental to understand the process of cultural development and the construction of a sense of identity and otherness. In this panel we present papers that aim to shed some light in different situations of cultural meeting and how individuals and communities dealt with it, giving examples on how social identity and otherness can be shaped by religious and cultural practices.
