Fall for 2006-2007
No faculty information available
People often evoke the concept of culture in order to explain their own and/or others’ actions. All too often, otherness is produced, re-produced and claimed to be ‘real.’ How ‘real’ are such cultural groupings and what are the consequences in business, education, politics, and our everyday lives?

Intercultural Communication is the theoretical study of the discursive production of cultural difference. This course covers a broad range of readings and has two main objectives: 1. to critique intercultural communication on a theoretical and academic level; and 2. to synthesize the newly gained understanding, allowing students to apply the learned notions in their everyday lives.
