Toward an Organizational Framework for Cross-Cultural Communication.
Goodyear, F. H.; West, Alan
In advancing an overall organizational pattern for the field of cross-cultural communication, it seems logical to divide the cross-cultural studies into the two major categories of international and intercultural. Four major types of communication can be classed as international: diplomatic and international political communication, American overseas commercial and recreational communication, American overseas religious and humanitarian communication, and communication of foreign nationals in the United States. Intercultural communication can be broken into the following five major divisions: culture studies, language studies, interethnic communication, minority rhetorics, and intragroup communication. A number of studies are described which have been conducted on each of the topics listed under the international and intercultural categories. (JM)
