A number of researchers, trainers and educators in intercultural communication acknowledge that the most popular models and theories of the field are insufficient – even unsuitable – to describe or explain our practical multicultural experiences today. This collection of articles offers new insights and critical evaluations of, intercultural communication theory and research. Authors from a variety of disciplines discuss, for example, methodological concerns; Chinese exceptionalism; micro and macro level interactions; ways to teach and study perceptions and self-awareness; and also provide new constructions for understanding communication and culture and their relationship.
