About the Course

This course provides an introduction to the interdisciplinary concept of “intercultural communication” and how this is approached from a linguistic perspective. You will study basic theoretical, analytical and critical perspectives on the role of language in intercultural communication, while also focusing on the connections language has to cognition, culture and identity. You will also gain insight into different communicative strategies, and how these can be designed to conform to different cultures and fields of activity.
