Journal Culture, Language and Representation invites contributions
for Volume 4 to be published May 2007

The issue will be devoted to "Intercultural Communication"

Since the various migratory phenomena entered the logic of
globalization, awareness has been raised about how different social
groups engage in open communicative processes. The cultural component
of communication covers a wide range of areas ranging from what has
been termed "material culture", to identity politics, power
relations, the idea of diversity and difference, concepts of the
border, as well as various other dimensions of communicative
interaction. Thus, the academic community has explored the field of
intercultural communication in an attempt to tackle and understand
those aspects of the communicative processes deriving from but not
directly related to linguistic abilities and variables.

Submissions may engage in the theoretical or empirical discussion of:

- Comparative analysis of communicative interactions between cultures.
- The exploration and evaluation of intercultural situations in
divergent communicative contexts.
- The analysis of transcultural, intracultural, ultracultural,
metacultural, or acculturization processes.
- Educational proposals that adopt an intercultural communicative approach.
- The role of the intercultural mediators in social contexts (public
services, institutions, etc.)
- The role of the media and advertising in promoting or appropriating
elements of intercultural communication.
- The articulation of issues of intercultural communication in the
arts, literature, film, or any other field involving creative processes.
