Description
INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION BETWEEN CHINESE & OTHER CULTURES
This course helps undergraduate students to develop an understanding of the cultural dimensions of communication specifically between those with a Chinese ethnicity or heritage and those from other cultures. Through lectures, film (clip) viewing, and discussions, students will be trained to understand interpersonal interactions based on expected Chinese culture norms, and be able to appreciate how cross-culture miscommunication may arise in concrete context. Upon completion of the course, students will (1) be able to critically analyze a communicative event with a cross­culture perspective, (2) develop communicative competence while performing in Chinese or English by understanding the target culture norms, and (3) develop better awareness towards issues of globalization in relation to one's evolving cultural and ethnic identity, and have a heightened awareness and sensitivity towards people with diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
