Friendship Patterns in Multi-Cultural Group: International Communication at the Personal Level.
Chu, Godwin C.
This paper examines the process of interpersonal communication across cultural boundaries, through a combination of the cross-cultural approach (from international communication research) and the interpersonal approach (from sociological research). The paper presents data on friendship patterns in a multi-cultural group. The experimenter observed forty-two scholars from Latin America, Asia, Middle East, Africa and East Europe who lived and studied together over a nine month period at a private west coast university. The dynamic process of their informal communication and group functioning is described and discussed. (Author/LG)
