Abstract:

This edited volume explores the educational significance of
intercultural experience. It offers a broader conception of
interculturality than commonly found in the area of foreign language
teaching. Contributors represent a diverse range of academic and
professional interests. The aim of the book is to encourage dialogue
and interchange across this range, and beyond, to stimulate thinking
about the educational value of intercultural experience.
