Editor: SAGE

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Derived from the best-selling Handbook of International and Intercultural Communication, Second Edition, this economically priced paperback version contains only the chapters dealing with cross-cultural and intercultural communication. Cross-Cultural and Intercultural Communication provides an extensive overview of cross-cultural variations in communication and expands upon the Handbook by viewing intercultural communication in terms of intergroup communication. Intercultural communication is a relatively new area of research in the communication discipline but has made tremendous progress in recent years. The book maintains that understanding cross-cultural communication is a prerequisite to understanding intercultural communication. Part One of the book discusses cross-cultural communication—the comparison of communication across cultures—and Part Two examines intercultural communication—the communication between people from different cultures. Each part begins with an introduction, includes a chapter on theory, and ends with a chapter on issues.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

However, due to its complexity, many problems remain unanswered and need to be addressed. This book seeks to conceptualize intercultural communication competence from diverse perspectives, explore its re-conceptualization in globalization, and investigate its development in cultural contexts and interaction scenarios. A group of leading international scholars in different academic disciplines join to map out a comprehensive picture, providing an in-depth and up-to-date work on intercultural communication competence. The book adopts an interdisciplinary approach and enhances readers’ understanding on the concept of intercultural communication competence. It is a useful source for educators, researchers, students and professionals.

Editor: Palgrave Macmillan

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Drawing on interdisciplinary theoretical perspectives, this book critically examines intercultural theory and its interrelations with globalisation, education and dialogue in multicultural societies. Applying the ethics of Emmanuel Levinas, the author repositions intercultural communication within a new paradigm that challenges static interpretations of self and other, and suggests future directions for the development of a post-methodological framework based on the decentring of the researcher. This innovative work will provide researchers and language teachers with the critical tools needed to challenge instrumentalist approaches to communication in a diverse global context, characterised by conflict and fear of the other and fresh insights to scholars of education, applied linguistics and sociology.
