Interkulturelle Kommunikation

Author: Dagmar Kumbier
Publisher:
ISBN: 3499620960
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Intercultural communication

Die kommunikative Brücke zwischen uns und anderen wackelt bedenklich, wenn wir kulturelle Unterschiede nicht kennen und berücksichtigen. Interkulturelle Kommunikation setzt sich zum Ziel, die Differenzen zu erkunden, die sprachliche Äußerungen einbetten und den Transfer von sachlichen Inhalten manchmal schwierig machen. Die für den einen Partner "normale" Rede- und Verhaltenspraxis stößt beim anderen auf Unverständnis oder tiefes Misstrauen wenn Spielregeln seiner Kultur verletzt werden. Dieser Sammelband zeigt an Beiträgen und Beispielen aus unterschiedlichen Praxisfeldern (Familie, Kinder, Politik, Wirtschaft), wie Schwierigkeiten der Interkulturellen Kommunikation analysiert und gelöst werden können. Dabei soll inhaltlich, methodisch und mit Blick auf die unterschiedlichen Kulturen ein weiter Bogen gespannt werden.

Genre: Social Science

We offer these texts bundled together at a discount for your students. Neuliep, Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach, Fourth Edition In this fully updated Fourth Edition of Intercultural Communication, author James W. Neuliep provides a clear contextual model (visually depicted by a series of concentric circles) for examining communication within cultural, microcultural, environmental, sociorelational, and perceptual contexts. Beginning with the broadest context—the cultural component of the model—the book progresses chapter by chapter through the model, to the most specific traits of communication, verbal and nonverbal messages. Each chapter focuses on one context and explores the combination of factors within that context, including setting, situation, and circumstances. Highlighting values, ethnicity, physical geography, and attitudes, the book examines means of interaction, including body language, eye contact, and the exchange of words, as well as the stages of relationships, cross-cultural management, intercultural conflict, and culture shock. Jandt, An Introduction to Intercultural Communication: Identities in a Global Community, Sixth Edition Packed with thought-provoking examples, photos, vignettes, quotes, cases, and stories that spark students’ interest and challenge them to reassess existing viewpoints, the Sixth Edition of An Introduction to Intercultural Communication prepares today’s readers to successfully navigate our increasingly global community. Using a historical framework that places current topics in context, author Fred E. Jandt integrates media as a variable in advancing issues and ideas, offers full chapter on women, family, and children and retains his non-biased presentation of all cultures and ethnic groups.
