Bridges of Understanding

Perspectives on Intercultural Communication

Edited by: Peter Nynas, Iben Jensen, Oyvind Dahl

Intercultural communication is a complex phenomenon and deserves a cross-disciplinary study in order to shed some light on the processes. In this book, researchers with different backgrounds and experiences seek answers to the following questions: From a variety of approaches, what can we learn about constructing new bridges of understanding? How can the insight be utilized in everyday intercultural encounters? Bridges of Understanding came about as the result of a meeting between a group of Nordic researchers at the annual conference of The Nordic Network for Intercultural Communication (NIC) in Kristiansand (Norway) in November 2004.
