Intercultural Occurrences: Diversity and Alterity is the second volume of the series Cultures, Contexts, Identities of the Intercultural Studies Research Institute of the Debrecen Reformed Theological University (DRTU). The series aims, in the first place, at presenting the latest results of literary and cultural scholarship, thus offering both the experienced researchers and the young experts a possibility to share their findings. We trust that a supportive space promoting the work of researchers from diverse fields will foster professional discussion and contribute to reinforcing the border-spanning contacts of professional workshops. The essays encompass the revised and expanded versions of the papers delivered at the 1st Networks Conference, organized by the Department of Languages and Literatures of Partium Christian University and the Intercultural Studies Research Institute of DRTU on 29 November 2019 in Oradea. The conference aimed to examine the notions of otherness and alterity as they relate to the conception of the other and as self-conception in the mesh of inter- and transculturality. Contributions were invited that evolved around otherness inassimilable by the self as it denotes radical alterity and renounces cultural narcissism, notions and metaphors of travel, identity, and cultural hybridity in constituting alterity or counteracting it, transcendence as alterity, the diasporic postcolonial surfacing in the vortex of gender, race, ethnicity, and class, as well as alterity expressed in narratives and language. It was evident in the course of the editing process that each thematic unit of the volume would represent a realm that could be conceived as an independent group of the extensive problem-conglomerate in connection with the above-mentioned notions.
