Leeds-Hurwitz, Wendy
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v76 n3 p262-81 Aug 1990
Argues that the intercultural communication field evolved from research performed at the United States Department of State's Foreign Service Institute between 1946 and 1956. Notes that the work of the Institute's linguists and anthropologists triggered research on nonverbal communication in social interaction. Argues that an understanding of intercultural communication's history will increase the field's future usefulness. (SG)
