Intercultural Communication and Media
15 ECTS credits
This course maps out contemporary globalization processes, such as media flows, travel, and migration, and expands upon key communication issues such as reflexivity, adaptability, and dialogue. The course is interdisciplinary, combining e g semiotics, hermeneutics, media theory, and cultural anthropology. During the course the students implement their skills in a small-scale problem-oriented communication project. The project can be carried out as an independent research task, or as an internship project in collaboration with a relevant industry or organization, resulting in an analytical and creative report. The project must be anchored in an intercultural context or problem area, dealing with for example the implementation of international media products or formats; development or evaluation of intercultural communication strategies; global audience analysis; or tasks related to communication for development. The course combines campus based meetings and online learning resources.
