Cultus: the Journal of Intercultural Mediation and Communication is an
international refereed journal focusing on the role of culture in
constructing, perceiving and translating reality. The Journal aims to
develop an awareness of the interplay between language and culture in
communication. The goal of this Journal is to promote research, education
and training in communication by investigating language, languages,
cultural models, conflict, mediation and interculturality. Furthermore,
since translation is considered as mediation between cultures it will be
included as a way of seeing cultural linguistics at work.
A fascinating feature of this Journal is constituted by a debate discussing
a topic of relevant interest to those working in the field.:
Cultus 1: 'Translation at Work' (Nov. 2008). Interview between translation
scholars Andrew Chesterman and Mona Baker,
Cultus 2, 'Training and Competencies' (Nov. 2009). Interview between Delia
Chiaro and Geert Hofstede.
Cultus 3, 'Identity and Integration' (Nov. 2010). Interview between
Patrick Boylan and Milton Bennett.
