Images, Discourses, and Representations at the Art Museum: Intercultural Openings
Palpacuer-Lee, Christelle
Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language and Literacy (CERCLL) (NJ3), Paper presented at the Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language and Literacy (CERCLL) Intercultural Competence Conference (ICC) (Aug 2010)
This article focuses on the ways world language teachers individually and collectively negotiate intercultural encounters and symbolic competence while abroad, at the art museum. In this empirical study, I locate, describe and analyze emerging third places by examining the teachers' discourse, in interaction at the museum. The data consists of a tape-recorded group discussion, participants' diaries, lesson plans and follow-up interviews. The research methodology adopts an interpretive framework, relying on post-structuralist methods of discourse analysis (Kramsch & Whiteside, 2008). This project is also tied to current research in study abroad and intercultural education (Alred & Byram, 2002; Kramsch, 2008, 2010; Kinginger, 2004, 2008, 2010) and in museum education (Knutson, 2002; Leinhardt & Knutson, 2004). Key to the transcription notation is appended. (Contains 5 tables.) [This paper was published in: Proceedings of Intercultural Competence Conference August, 2010, Vol. 1, pp. 304-334.]
