|Seminar content||Cross-cultural issues are an increasingly critical aspect of management in the global interdependent
economy, worldwide climate change cooperation, large scale natural disaster/pandemic responses, and
forestalling nuclear weapon proliferation. Moreover, domestic state populations are experiencing
greater multicultural integration, which is projected to grow in the coming decades due to
south-north migration. Management of these challenges will require intercultural competence to
mitigate cross-cultural antagonisms. To help attendees prepare for the future, this seminar will
survey the major theoretical perspectives currently used to research contemporary cross-cultural
topics from economic, sociological, psychological, and anthropological disciplines.
The initial class will provide an overview of culture, communication, and intercultural communication. Subsequent classes will be organized around a case study perspective. Lessons will begin with a short discussion period on a theoretical framework, followed by a critique of the methodology, and then move to group work designed to help students recognize, analyze and resolve contentious cross-cultural issues.
Provide a theoretical framework for recognizing and analyzing the effect of culture in cross-cultural management settings
