Inhaltsangabe:Introduction: The transfer of business activities across nations is growing at a rapid rate. The emergence of market economies in Latin America and Asia, the collapse of communism in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, and the emerging democracy in Africa have led, among other things, not only to increased global trade, international, multinational and transnational business, but also to an increased demand for international workforce since firms must employ people who possess international business skills in order to remain competitive in the global marketplace. How often does it happen that we meet someone doing business in the United States after representing his/her company in Asia, Middle East or Europe? How often do we meet someone obtaining an international degree abroad before doing business in China, France or Scandinavia? How often do companies require international experiences, mobility, and flexibility? The soft skills of intercultural competence and open-mindedness to cultural diversity are taught by universities around the world. But what happens with our own cultural identity while doing business worldwide? What happens if we conduct business in Japan but with an Italian colleague who lived in São Paulo for many years? Are we just applying intercultural competence or are we developing a universal business culture - apart from our own national culture? How does an international workforce communicate; is it adapting the communication style of the host-country, of a majority culture; or is it developing a communication style which is unique in international business? Are we speaking the same language at the end? Is the understanding of cultural diversity becoming less substantial and more implicit? If companies and organizations require the indispensable and vague defined soft skills of intercultural competence, could these skills be seen as an approach towards a universal business culture, likewise a universal business communication? Purpose of the Present Thesis: The purpose of the present thesis is to examine if and to which extent cultures converge in an international business environment and if intercultural competence has a bearing on it. Therefore, theoretical and practical insights in the subject of culture, its implicit and explicit differences, as well as its measurements will be provided. Due to the fact that communication - as a major cultural attribute - is the most obvious level on which cultural [...]

This book looks at the movements of immigrants and refugees and the challenges they face as they cross cultural boundaries and strive to build a new life in an unfamiliar place. It focuses on the psychological dynamic underpinning of their adaptation process, how their internal conditions change over time, the role of their ethnic and personal backgrounds, and of the conditions of the host environment affecting the process. Addressing these and related issues, the author presents a comprehensive theory, or a "big picture,"of the cross-cultural adaptation phenomenon.

From high-level business negotiations to casual conversations among friends, every interpersonal interaction is shaped by cultural norms and expectations. Seldom is this more clearly brought to light than in encounters between people from different cultural backgrounds, when dissimilar communication practices may lead to frustration and misunderstanding. This thought-provoking text presents a new framework for understanding the impact of culture on communication and for helping students build intercultural communication competence. With illustrative examples from around the globe, the book shows that verbal and nonverbal communication involves much more than transmitting a particular message--it also reflects each participant's self-image, group identifications and values, and privacy and relational needs. Readers learn to move effectively and appropriately through a wide range of transcultural situations by combining culture-specific knowledge with mindful listening and communication skills. Throughout, helpful tables and charts and easy-to-follow guidelines for putting concepts into practice enhance the book's utility for students.

"This Reader is a scholarly tour de force, as it offers an intelligent and comprehensive coverage of the highly multidisciplinary field of Intercultural Communication without falling into the twin traps of essentialism or relativism. No researcher in applied linguistics will want to miss Zhu Hua's brilliant concluding chapter that surveys various research designs and data collection techniques, and discusses the strengths and weaknesses of each approach. The study questions and activities featured in each chapter together with suggestions for further reading make this Reader an invaluable resource for undergraduate and graduate seminars alike." Claire Kramsch, University of California, Berkeley, USA "This volume covers all the key topics, both basic conceptual and theoretical questions and a broad range of empirical issues and perspectives related to different settings and different parts of the world. It is really global in its coverage. This book will give readers a good grasp of the field as it is being developed throughout the world." Karen Risager, Roskilde University, Denmark This reader covers the two interconnected areas of Language and Intercultural Communication, increasingly studied together. Language is key to understanding culture, and culture is an essential part of studying language. Divided into six parts, the Reader covers: Theories of language and intercultural communication; Cultural dimensions of language in use; Communication patterns across cultures; Teaching and learning cultural variations of language use; Interculturality; and Intercultural Communication in professional contexts. With 22 varied readings from eminent authorities in the field as well as cutting edge material from new researchers, the Reader explores the breadth and depth of the subject as well as providing a valuable overview for both student and scholar. Each reading has been carefully selected to both showcase the best thinking and latest research, and to reflect the international nature of the field. Each part begins with a clear and comprehensive introduction, and is enhanced by discussion questions, suggested activities and far-reaching further reading sections. There is a final section offering advice on how to perform research in this area. This is an essential text for all students and researchers in the area of language and intercultural communication.

This handbook takes a multi-disciplinary approach to offer a current state-of-art survey of intercultural communication (IC) studies. The chapters aim for conceptual comprehension, theoretical clarity and empirical understanding with good practical implications. Attention is mostly on face to face communication and networked communication facilitated by digital technologies, much less on technically reproduced mass communication. Contributions cover both cross cultural communication (implicit or explicit comparative works on communication practices across cultures) and intercultural communication (works on communication involving parties of diverse cultural backgrounds). Topics include generally histories of IC research, theoretical perspectives, non-western theories, and cultural communication; specifically communication styles, emotions, interpersonal relationships, ethnocentrism, stereotypes, cultural learning, cross cultural adaptation, and cross border messages;and particular context of conflicts, social change, aging, business, health, and new media. Although the book is prepared for graduate students and academicians, intercultural communication practitioners will also find something useful here.
