This course will examine skills for avoiding misunderstandings in intercultural settings. To develop an understanding of how culture affects the communication process, we will trace the role of historical, political, and religious factors in creating intercultural misunderstandings. Classes will include lots of personal stories interspersed with theory and discussion.
