Readings in Intercultural Communication: Volume I. The Intercultural Communication Workshop.
Hoopes, David S., Ed.
This book is a volume of readings on the theory and practice of the intercultural communication workshop (ICW). The ICW is defined as a short-term program (two and a half days) enabling people from different cultural backgrounds to explore together the nature of culture and communication. It was developed to improve communication among foreign and American students on college campuses. One goal is to help participants improve behavioral skills in intercultural communication and cross-cultural human relations. The volume contains 15 essays by a variety of authors. Topics include a perceptual approach to culture, problems of intercultural communication, the value of the ICW on campuses, goals and leadership in the ICW, the ICW as a learning environment, and research issues in evaluating the objectives of the ICW. Five of the essays describe workshop models, including those developed at the Universities of Pittsburgh, Minnesota, and Connecticut. A selected bibliography of 16 resources concludes the volume.
