Intercultural Ethics: Questions of Methods in Language and Intercultural Communication
Phipps, Alison
Language and Intercultural Communication, v13 n1 p10-26 2013
This paper explores how questions of ethics and questions of method are intertwined and unavoidable in any serious study of language and intercultural communication. It argues that the focus on difference and solution orientations to intercultural conflict has been a fundamental driver for theory, data collection and methods in the field. These approaches, the paper argues, have created a considerable consciousness raising industry, with methods, trainings and "critical incidents", which ultimately focus intellectual energy in areas which may be productive in terms of courses and publications but which have a problematic basis in their ethical terrain.
