Course Description: This course is taught by UC Davis Associate Professor, Bo Feng. The course examines the role of culture in shaping the ways in which we communicate with and relate to others. Culture can be broadly defined as a system of taken-for-granted assumptions about the world that influences how we think, feel, and act. This course introduces major theories and concepts of intercultural communication from a variety of perspectives, and looks at many of the different processes that make up cultural differences, and examines how these theories and concepts can guide us to communicate competently in intercultural communication settings. Students engage in critical discussions about the role of culture and communication in (re)constructing the collective human reality. Issues of identity, power, and control, as well as ways of transcending cultural and ethnic differences are discussed. No textbook is required for the course. Readings will be distributed to the class. Assessment: three take-home essays, final exam, and group project.
