Course Description This course is designed to provide an overview of the field of intercultural communication as it relates to social inequalities, structured power differences, and diversity. It examines key elements of culture and intercultural communication in context of a social hierarchy of difference (e.g., religion, age, race, class, gender, sexuality, region, nationality, generation, disability). Students will learn about theories of intercultural communication and structured inequalities, social influences on cultural/ethnic identity, and political framings of intercultural communication behaviors. This course will enable students to examine and analyze communication issues and encounters involving elements such as culture, power, and social inequalities. Students will analyze the structural conditions that prevent, hinder, or exacerbate intercultural communication relations. This course assists students to understand and transform dominant relations of power and prejudice, e.g., sexism, heterosexism, class elitism, racism, ethnocentrism, and nationalism in communication.
