Intercultural communication – for all, for good. An open-to-all seminar and discussion event FREE - REFRESHMENTS PROVIDED - ALL WELCOME! Thursday, November 7th 2019, 17.00 – 19.00 Armstrong Building, Room 3.38, Newcastle University This free seminar and discussion event will showcase recent work by Newcastle university academics in the field of intercultural communication. The Applied Linguistics and Communication Section in the School of Education, Communication and Language sciences have an international reputation for excellence in this emerging field of interest in the social sciences, and we want to share it with a wider public. Our work addresses questions that are at the forefront of current concerns about who we are and how we can get along with each other in a changing world. We ask things like: What is culture, and cultural difference? How can these important but complex ideas be approached, understood and researched? How does culture affect how people talk to each other in different contexts – like work, study, or health care?What is intercultural communication? How can it be made better? How does understanding and improving it relate to questions about who we are and where we belong? This event will inform you about what we’ve been up to and how it is making a difference. We’ll showcase a wide range of our activities, many of which have been supported by the Economic and Social Research Council and other top national and international funders. We hope you’ll come along with your own questions and ideas to get conversations going! Part of the ESRC’s 2019 Festival of Social Science
