Abstract:

This book explores the idea of 'intercultural competence', which, despite its
current popularity across various discourses, has remained a vague and
oscillating concept. Interculture lacks a universal definition and
'competence' is not only a cognitive construct but also includes
psychological traits such as attitudes, affective aspects and constructions
of identity.

The essays in this volume approach the complexity of the concept from a
number of different angles. These include theoretical models for defining
the concept of 'intercultural competence', outlining paths for future
research; application of the concept in the teaching and learning of
foreign languages, cultures and literatures; exploration of institutional
and sociocultural influences on mediating intercultural competence; and
analysis of the concept's impact on such diverse contexts as international
business, religious constructs and notions of selfhood and identity.

The volume develops a broad range of perspectives on intercultural
competence, providing stimulating new ideas, reflections and models around
this important concept.
