Les liens entre anthropologie et interculturalit� semblent � naturels � � premi�re vue. Mais ces liens en fait ne vont pas de soi. C'est pourquoi cet ouvrage se donne pour objectif d'examiner le recours de la didactique des langues et de l'interculturel � divers courants et conceptions de l'anthropologie. Pour tous les auteurs rassembl�s ici, il y a d'abord n�cessit� d'identifier, pour mieux les comprendre, les complexit�s de l'interculturalit� mais aussi de se positionner dans le champ d'une anthropologie plurielle voire �clat�e. Certains d'entre eux proposent l'anthropologie comme une approche didactique en soi au sein de la classe de langue, tandis que d'autres s'appuient sur ses concepts et outils pour mener leurs r�flexions sur des situations d'enseignement-apprentissage. Ce livre s'adresse aux chercheurs, enseignants et anthropologues qui souhaitent interroger et s'interroger sur les relations entre anthropologie(s) et didactique. The seemingly 'natural' link between anthropology and interculturality is not self-explanatory. For this reason, this book aims to review the use of various forms and understandings of anthropology in language and intercultural education. First of all, it is necessary on the one hand to clarify the notion of interculturality, and on the other hand, to position oneself in the complex and multifaceted field of anthropology. While some authors in the volume describe how they initiate anthropological practices in the language classroom, others explain how they apply theories, concepts and methods from anthropology to research learning and teaching. The volume will be of great value to (novice) researchers, teachers and anthropologists interested in the relationship between anthropology and language and intercultural education.

-A new edition of this definitive book, marking the 60th anniversary of the Speedmaster -Includes new features and additional historical information "The OMEGA Speedmaster Professional - the Moonwatch - has done things that no other timepiece has done and it has been worn in places that only a few human beings have been." - Captain Eugene Cernan, last man on the moon "It is an indescribable reference work and a true must-have for every Speedmaster collector." - Forbes There are very few timepieces in the world that deserve a definitive and comprehensive book. The OMEGA Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch is one of them. Initially designed for automobile racing teams and engineers, the Omega Speedmaster embarked on a very different trajectory when NASA chose it to accompany astronauts heading for the Moon in 1965. Its involvement in the space adventure has propelled the Moonwatch to the top of the list of celebrated timepieces. After years of research and observation, the authors present a complete panorama of the Moonwatch in a systematic work that is both technical and attractive, making it the unparalleled reference book for this legendary watch. This new edition, marking the 60th anniversary of the Speedmaster, has been enriched with numerous new features and additional historical information.

Negotiating Academic Literacies: Teaching and Learning Across Languages and Cultures is a cross-over volume in the literature between first and second language/literacy. This anthology of articles brings together different voices from a range of publications and fields and unites them in pursuit of an understanding of how academic ways of knowing are acquired. The editors preface the collection of readings with a conceptual framework that reconsiders the current debate about the nature of academic literacies. In this volume, the term academic literacies denotes multiple approaches to knowledge, including reading and writing critically. College classrooms have become sites where a number of languages and cultures intersect. This is the case not only for students who are in the process of acquiring English, but for all learners who find themselves in an academic situation that exposes them to a new set of expectations. This book is a contribution to the effort to discover ways of supporting learning across languages and cultures--and to transform views about what it means to teach and learn, to read and write, and to think and know. Unique to this volume is the inclusion of the perspectives of writers as well as those of teachers and researchers. Furthermore, the contributors reveal their own struggles and accomplishments as they themselves have attempted to negotiate academic literacies. The chronological ordering of articles provides a historical perspective, demonstrating ways in which issues related to teaching and learning across cultures have been addressed over time. The readings have consistency in terms of quality, depth, and passion; they raise important philosophical questions even as they consider practical classroom applications. The editors provide a series of questions that enable the reader to engage in a generative and exciting process of reflection and inquiry. This book is both a reference for teachers who work or plan to work with diverse learners, and a text for graduate-level courses, primarily in bilingual and ESL studies, composition studies, English education, and literacy studies.

This book argues that intercultural communication generates a 'third space', between people, languages and cultures. It has a particularly important role to play in third level education. But those who teach about it need to be more aware of language, especially (but not only) in the context of Europe, which is characterised both by creative linguistic and cultural diversity and by obstacles to communication. The world is undergoing rapid and profound transformation. Internationalisation of the global economy, the communications revolution, and increased mobility have exponentially increased the scale of encounters between people and cultures. This has a far reaching transformative impact on the identities and values they carry. The chapters were first presented at colloquia of the Thematic Network in Languages at Antwerp and Boulogne in 1998 and 1999. They contain a wealth of reflection and good ideas, and identify a number of practical imperatives: ethical, political and institutional. The book presents a series of challenges, and invites the reader to consider how changes might be implemented in different contexts, so as to strengthen the ability of higher education to contribute to the successful development of a multi-cultural and multilingual Europe.

What can we learn from children traversing the liminal and transient time-space of migration? How do migrant children and their caretakers navigate educational systems in Europe today? How is it to be captive in an inner city classroom? How do children’s body language and verbal dominant languages interface? How does a child become mediator between their family and the educational institutions? This anthropologically grounded study, integrated by ethnographic film excerpts and based on a culturally-reflexive approach to the use of media in the research practices, explores the transcultural experience of migrant children between 6 and 13 years, by closely analysing the particular codes, rhythms and practices of educational systems in Ireland and France. The children’s experiences are represented in both the film sequences and the written text, in the form of their personal, shared viewpoints about cultural diversity, biographical accounts and social practices in the family and at school. These are experiences which they have worked through, from a time preceding migration and to the present. The film captures the sensibilities of migrant children and invites the reader/viewer to embark on these somewhat uneven paths.

In Understanding Global Cultures, Fifth Edition, authors Martin J. Gannon and Rajnandini Pillai present the cultural metaphor—any activity, phenomenon, or institution with which the members of a given culture identify emotionally or cognitively—as a method for understanding the cultural mindsets of individual nations, clusters of nations, and even continents. The book shows how metaphors are guidelines to help outsiders quickly understand what members of a culture consider important. The fully updated Fifth Edition includes 31 nation-specific chapters, including a new Part XI on popular music as cultural metaphors, two completely new chapters on Vietnam and Argentina, revisions to all retained chapters, and a more explicit linkage between each cultural metaphor and current economic and business developments in each nation.

Advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students and researchers in international business, international management and cross-cultural management, and all concerned with the transfer of knowledge in the global economy. It will also be a valuable source of concepts and ideas to cross-cultural trainers and to various categories of practitioners within knowledge management and international human resource management. This book forges a break with the concept of culture that has dominated management thinking, education, and research for several decades. Culture, rather than being presented as a source of difference and antagonism, is presented as a form of organisational knowledge that can be converted into a resource for underpinning core competence. This perspective based on extensive research into the operations of four major international corporations, challenges traditional thinking by contending that cross-cultural management is a form of knowledge management. Key to this text are the four global case companies contrasting experiences, presented as insightful case studies about rarely observed aspects of firms cross-cultural communication behaviour.

Dans quelle mesure une etude comparee des pratiques et representations des langues chez des acteurs scolaires (enseignants, eleves, parents d'eleves et representants institutionnels) permet-elle d'identifier les facteurs relatifs a l'introduction ou non a l'ecole de la langue dite nationale - le creole a base lexicale francaise ? A quel point est-il pertinent de l'introduire dans le systeme educatif anglophone de petits Etats-nations en developpement comme la Dominique et Sainte-Lucie - caracterises par une dynamique sociale et culturelle ou conflit et contact de langues (anglais, creoles, chinois, francais, espagnol, hindi, garifuna et/ou kokoy) rythment la vie quotidienne des locuteurs ? Comment l'ecole peut-elle favoriser un meilleur apprentissage du vivre ensemble ? Pour mener a bien cette recherche-action, l'etude s'inscrit dans une approche experimentale de type hypothetico-deductive. Elle propose des pistes de reflexion pour ameliorer le partenariat langue officielle / langue nationale dans un contexte scolaire caracterise par des pratiques bi-plurilingues."
