Cross-Cultural Communication (COMM02)
16th May 2020
‘Cross-cultural communication is a process of creating and sharing meaning among people from different cultural backgrounds using a variety of means’ (The SAGE Encyclopedia of Communication Research Methods, 2017). Drawing on a broad range of critical tools and theoretical perspectives – literary theory, cultural studies, anthropology, media studies, film studies, and the digital humanities – we will apply these methods and concepts to a wide variety of cultural texts and media forms (including literature, journalism, photography, film, television, music, and digital media). In particular, we will examine the ways in which individuals tend to define themselves with and against ‘others’, and consider the implications of this psychosocial and political dynamic. In so doing, this course will provide students with theoretical and practical frameworks through which to explore and understand cross-cultural issues in the contemporary world.
