Course aim

To introduce students to the interpretation and application of intercultural communication in social and professional contexts. Students will develop their understanding of linguistic and cultural diversity, including that of Aboriginal and other Indigenous peoples, and explore its implications for intercultural communication in the contemporary world.

Course content

The course introduces students to intercultural communication in the contemporary world, focusing on multiple and diverse audiences, mobilities and globalisation, cultural symbols and values, language and categories, hard and soft borders, and interpretations of intercultural sites. Drawing on a wide range of actual, virtual, national and international examples, including those reflecting the experience of Aboriginal and other Indigenous peoples, students develop their intercultural awareness and apply this in their own written, verbal and visual communication. Students  research, report and present on sites of intercultural communication that are relevant to their particular experience and professional interests.
