CORE COURSE OPTIONS

Communication and Conflict: A Cross-Cultural Perspective
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
We live in paradoxical times: technology-driven globalization constantly reduces differences between cultures and online communication has become universal and omnipresent, but cultural and ethnic tensions appear to be on the rise. What is the role of communication in not just helping to resolve but sometimes also in acerbating such conflicts? Drawing on theory and methodology from diverse fields we examine cultural and related differences in communication, we investigate cultural misunderstandings and conflicts in two contrasting European contexts covering four distinct countries: Denmark, Sweden, the UK, and Ireland.

We draw on European theories of communication and hands-on activities, and examine the kinds of community and collaboration that are thriving due to online culture. The course also focuses on the controversy of surveillance, privacy, and the darknet – the dark side of the web.
