COMM 2232 Topics in Intercultural Communication (Summer: 3 )
This course will explore the challenges individuals and institutions often face when they attempt to communicate across cultural barriers, with particular emphasis on obstacles posed by ideological constructions of difference such as race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, and sexuality. We will cultivate a critical perspective on relevant conflicts and controversies using the theoretical resources offered by the field of media and cultural studies. Our aim is to foster both greater understanding of potential impediments to humane cross-cultural communication, and more sophisticated strategies of intervention.
