Intercultural Communication


"Intercultural communication" and "cross-cultural communication" are interchangeable terms in referring to the field of studies covered in this course. We will start with a critical examination of Geert Hofstede's cultural dimensions theory and then explore theories of verbal and non-verbal cues, space and time, tastes and smells, and shame and politeness from multidisciplinary angles and by using varied case studies in intercultural settings. Finally, we will tackle intercultural dynamics through the lens of foods as well as the people who produce and consume them. The readings cover case studies of different world regions across various cultural, linguistic, and ethnic groups. This course aims to provide analytical tools to understand and navigate cultural difference and to develop critical skills of intercultural competence.
