ICA 2010 Pre-conference on Intercultural Dialogue

June 22, 2010, Singapore

Sponsored by the Language and Social Interaction Division

and the Intercultural Division of ICA

Scholars throughout the world who study issues related to
intercultural communication often use a variety of terms and
terminology that are specific to a particular geographic area and
disciplinary history. In order to cross cultural boundaries and
dialogue about these issues, it is essential that we understand one
another’s terms. In this preconference, we will examine real
intercultural communication encounters in an effort to establish and
define the key terms that international scholars use to understand
these dialogues.

Participants are asked to submit at least one key term and definition
posted to the wiki site:
http://interculturaldialogue.wikispaces.com/Key+terms by January 15,
2010. In addition, please email a copy of your posting to
eyho at usfca.edu. NOTE: DO NOT submit your term to the regular ICA
submission site. You will be notified by February 15, 2010 if you have
been accepted. These terms and definitions will be used as part of the
pre-conference discussions.

This day-long preconference serves as a follow-up and continuation of
the 2009 NCA Summer Conference on Intercultural Dialogue held in
Istanbul, Turkey. All are invited to participate. Technology
permitting, electronic participation may be an option for those who
cannot make the trip to Singapore.

Registration: $100 USD and includes lunch.
