The intercultural rhetoric arc encompasses studies of cross-cultural text as sites of interactions in which writers and speakers with various linguistic, cultural, and social backgrounds negotiate communication in a multitude of settings-- the classroom, business, industry, and health care, to name a few.
This conference seeks to integrate current discussions of intercultural competence in language education into intercultural rhetoric and discourse research and application in ESL, EFL, ESP, ELF, and foreign language teaching settings. Researchers and teachers of second/foreign languages as well as scholars in Second Language Acquisition, Communication, Composition, Multicultural Education, among others, are encouraged to participate.
This year’s conference also celebrates the memory of professor Daniel C. Nützel, who died in April 2013 at the age of 50. Nützel was associate professor of German, the Hoyt-Reichmann Scholar of German-American Studies and director of the Max Kade German-American Center at IUPUI.
Sponsored by the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI, Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis, the Max Kade German-American Center at IUPUI, the International Center for Intercultural Communication, and the Department of World Languages and Cultures.
