Downscaling Culture: Revisiting Intercultural Communication Conference

The Centre for Language and Communication Research at Cardiff, together with ESRC PhD International Partnering Scheme partners at the University of Delhi, are inviting abstracts for an interdisciplinary conference with the theme “Downscaling Culture: Revisiting Intercultural Communication” to be held in Cardiff in September.

Details of the conference are as follows:

All day, Thursday 18 September 2014 - Friday 19 September 2014

The Centre for Language and Communication Research at Cardiff University, in collaboration with the Department of Linguistics at the University of Delhi and the ESRC Doctoral Training Centre Wales, is hosting a conference on intercultural communication.

“With this conference we wish to update research on intercultural communication by broadening its empirical repository” say conference organisers Jaspal Singh, Argyro Kantara and Dorottya CserzƑ. “Correspondingly, researchers who haven’t worked with the concept of intercultural communication – or indeed who haven’t worked with ‘culture’ – are invited to take a fresh look at their work. A conference volume of selected papers is planned.”

Further information will be available in due course on the conference website.

Here are the details of the call for papers:

Deadline: Wednesday 30 April 2014

Abstracts for papers and posters are invited for the international conference “Downscaling Culture: Revisiting Intercultural Communication“.
