Meeting Description:

The expanding umbrella of intercultural rhetoric comprises studies of cross-cultural text analysis and studies of interactions, in which writers and speakers with a variety of linguistic, cultural and social backgrounds negotiate speaking and writing in a multitude of settings, e.g., classroom, business, industry and health care. Challenges for researchers and teachers are many. This conference seeks to discuss the comprehensiveness of research to study these complex situations, keeping in mind the importance of translating research into practice in ESL, EFL, ESP and ELF settings.
