Japan Intercultural Institute:

Intercultural Seminar

Date: Sunday, July 25th, 2004 Time: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Joseph Shaules: Rikkyo University

This half-day seminar, sponsored by JII (Japan Intercultural Institute), The Rikkyo University Graduate School for Intercultural Communication, and OUP (Oxford University Press), will present an overview of fundamental concepts which underlie the theory and practice of intercultural education. It is intended for language teachers and other interculturalists who have an interest in intercultural communication, cultural difference and cultural learning, but who may not have extensive training in this area. It provides an introduction to intercultural theory and serves as a foundation for later more specialized training. The seminar will be interactive, and participants will be expected to share their insights and experiences. Seminar materials will be presented in English, with discussion in both English and Japanese. The seminar will be divided into two halves:

  1. The roots of intercultural conflict.
  2. Understanding intercultural learning experiences.
