Title: Culture in Communication. Analyses of intercultural situations.
Edited By: Aldo Di Luzio
Franca Orletti
Susanne Günthner
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond NS 81
Description:

This volume is dedicated to questions arising in linguistic, sociological and anthropological analyses of intercultural encounters. It aims at presenting new theoretical and methodological aspects of Intercultural
Communication, focusing on issues such as ideology and hegemonial attitudes, communicative genres and culture specific repertoires of genres, the theory of contextualization and nonverbal (prosodic, gestural, mimic) contextualization cues. The collected articles, which share an interactive view of language, focus on the methodological possibilities of explanatory analyses of intercultural communication. They address the question how participants in inter-cultural communication (re)construct cultural differences and cultural identities.
Empirical analyses go hand-in-hand with the discussion of methodological and theoretical aspects of interculturality and the relationship of language and culture.
