      Cultus: the Journal of intercultural mediation and communication

      First Call for abstracts

      "Training for a transcultural world"

      30th November 2011: call for abstracts
      15th March 2012: full papers

      ISSUE 5 (2012) will focus on "Training for a transcultural world". We are particularly interested in contributions focussing on research, models, strategies and also practical exercises which either break new ground on classic linguacultural divides, or reach beyond static, stereotypical `cultural differences' and focus on the `in betweenness' of living, translating, working or studying across cultures, which are themselves dynamically evolving.
      In either case, "Training for a Transcultural World" will aim to help those living among and between constantly shifting linguacultural realities to act, communicate, translate, and in general, interact more effectively.
