Intercultural Communication - ICOM821

Lectures and tutorials in this unit are organised around key issues in intercultural communication such as identity, power, globalisation, culture transition, taboo, and intercultural communication problems. Selected readings introduce key theories in the field and identify areas where intercultural communication takes place (business, multicultural communities, politics). In class, we draw upon current affairs in exploring particular settings in which intercultural skills are of vital importance. The unit reader presents a collection of key texts but there is strong emphasis on practical work where strategies of successful intercultural communication in interpersonal and international situations are being assessed.
