This course examines communication in intercultural contexts, and explores how communication is affected by divergent value systems, differing levels of technological adaptation, and unequal power configurations. We will focus on how style and word choice affect the ways that audiences in different cultures respond to arguments, and the rhetorical strategies for collaborative problem-solving to bridge cultural differences.
