Title: Identity and Integration
www.cultusjournal.com (for submission details)
Cultus Issue 3 (Oct. 2010), which features an interview with interculturalist Milton Bennett, will focus on Identity and Integration. In particular we are interested in contributions that focus
on how language creates or marks habitus and identity, and how language can foster integration (or otherwise) across cultures.
Cultus: the Journal of intercultural mediation and communication is an international refereed journal focussing on the role of culture in constructing, perceiving and translating reality. The Journal aims to develop an awareness of the interplay between language and culture in communication.
Managing diversity is now an issue, as an ever growing number of people are becoming increasingly involved in communicative interactions with others from different linguistic and cultural backgrounds: in business, education, media, tourism and also through immigration and political conflict. This Journal provides a stimulating forum, focussing on the experience of both practitioners and academics; their analysis of languages and cultures, and how the differences have been, or might be, managed.
The goal of this Journal is to promote research, education and training in communication by investigating language, languages, cultural models, conflict, mediation and interculturality. Furthermore, since translation is considered as mediation between cultures it will be included as a way of seeing cultural linguistics at work.
A fascinating feature of this Journal is constituted by a debate discussing a topic of relevant interest to those working in the field.:
Cultus 1: "Translation at Work". Interview between translation scholars Andrew Chesterman and Mona Baker, as well as articles by Anthony Pym, Federica Scarpa, Yamei Chen, David Limon and Eliana Terminiello
Cultus 2, "Training and Competencies" (Oct. 2009). Interview between Delia Chiaro and Geert Hofstede.
Issue 3, "Identity and Integration" (Oct. 2010). Interview between Patrick Boylan and Milton Bennett.
