logos

An open seminar hosted by the CGE, CLLEAR, TNS and MEXSU entitled ‘Perspectives on intercultural communication and intercultural communicative competence’ will take place on Wednesday 11th November 2015 from 5:00-6:30pm at Avenue Campus, Building 65, Lecture Theatre C. In this panel discussion, Professor Marion Demossier, Dr Will Baker and Dr Karin Zotzmann from Modern Languages at the University of Southampton will each discuss their own approach to these notions, after which they will join in discussion with the audience. All welcome!

Here is a further description of the context of this seminar:

In our age of superdiversity and unprecedented mobility (both actual and virtual, and temporary and permanent), communication across language and cultural boundaries has become the norm for many of us. Intercultural communication has therefore become a practical necessity in a wide range of settings around the globe, and as a result, intercultural communication and intercultural communicative competence have become key areas of theorisation and research within applied and socio-linguistics.
