USIA Intercultural Communication Course: 1977 Proceedings.
Prosser, Michael H., Ed.
Described as a statement of progress, intended to provide reflective recall for those involved and to illustrate the scope and context of the program, this document presents a collection of abstracts and working papers submitted by seventeen officers of the United States Information Agency (USIA) who took a six week intercultural course offered by the USIA. Reflected in these papers are the following themes: (1) key definitions and models of communication theory and culture theory; (2) the pervasive influence of such key underlying issues as the principle of similarities and differences and the effect which control, conflict, technology, cultural stability and change, and cultural imperialism and dependency might have on intercultural communication; (3) specific communication and cultural components and variables; and (4) linkages that have practical applicability. In addition, an essay review of books utilized in the USIA course, selected book reviews by course participants, an evaluation of the course, and biographies of the course participants are included in this document.
