In the course, different theoretical and methodological frameworks are compared and practical implications emerging from different research traditions on intercultural communication are discussed. The course literature presents intercultural and cross-cultural pragmatics with a critical perspective that focuses on issues of power and dominance in a multicultural and multilingual society.

The skills developed in this course are useful for anyone with an interest for intercultural and cross-cultural communication, as well for those who meet speakers of Swedish as a second language in their profession, especially in schools and educational institutions, but also in other administrative institutions and social organizations.
