Perception and communication in intercultural spaces

Lily A. Arasaratnam

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Perception and Communication in Intercultural Spaces explores the ways in which cultural values and beliefs influence communication. It captures intercultural communication in everyday contexts by introducing the concept of intercultural spaces. The book does not prescribe 'ten easy steps' to effective intercultural communication; rather, it discusses the what and the why of intercultural issues in the hope that the readers can adapt their understanding to suit their own contexts, given that the specific ways intercultural issues unfold are as varied as the contexts in which the readers may find themselves. The book includes a discussion of theoretical frameworks in the areas of culture, cognition, and communication, as well as the practical application of these frameworks with the use of conversations, critical incidents, and short stories.
