Cíle předmětu
The aim of the course is to provide basic understanding of the practices of intercultural communication from a broad linguistic perspective. The course will address problems of communication in professional (work-related/business) contexts, as well as less formal interpersonal interactions (romance, international travel). We will discuss the relevant phenomena from the points of view of the face/politeness theory and the theory of cultural scripts, probing the different cultural worldviews that various communities have on the basis of on their different languages.
Výstupy z učení
After passing this course, students will be able to:
- identify some of the typical problems in intercultural communication and understand their causes;
- describe the causes of miscommunication using relevant theoretical frameworks;
- overcome some of these problems or suggest solutions for dealing with them.
  • The course will have two main segments:
  • 1) Intercultural communication from the point of view of linguistics (the operation of pragmatic principles, face, miscommunication, academic styles) 2) Introduction to basic concepts and models of intercultural communication (a short history of research in the field, cultural differences and value dimensions, as well as a variety of other practical and theoretical approaches).
  • The following topics will be covered:
  • 1. Language and culture, the sign and semiosis. 2. Language, worldview, relativity and cultural identity. 3. Face. Interpersonal politeness and power. 4. Institutional communication. 5. Business communication. 6. Bridging miscommunication. 7. Intercultural communication and stereotyping. 8. Cultural scripts and language - Wierzbicka's approach to "Anglo" culture. 9. Humour, mockery and cross-cultural issues. 10. Intercultural communication at work. 11. Global multiculturalism, intercultural romance. 12. Case studies (current research).
