Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics is a series of introductory level textbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, primarily designed for those beginning postgraduate studies, or taking an introductory MA course as well as advanced undergraduates. Titles in the series are also ideal for language professionals returning to academic study. The books take an innovative 'practice to theory' approach, with a 'back-to-front' structure. This leads the reader from real-world problems and issues, through a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns, before finally relating these practical issues to theoretical foundations. Additional features include tasks with commentaries, a glossary of key terms, and an annotated further reading section. Exploring Intercultural Communication investigates the role of language in intercultural communication, paying particular attention to the interplay between cultural diversity and language practice. This book brings together current or emerging strands and themes in the field by examining how intercultural communication permeates our everyday life, what we can do to achieve effective and appropriate intercultural communication, and why we study language, culture and identity together. The focus is on interactions between people from various cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and regards intercultural communication as a process of negotiating meaning, cultural identities, and – above all – differences between ourselves and others. Including global examples from a range of genres, this book is an essential read for students taking language and intercultural communication modules within Applied Linguistics, TESOL, Education or Communication Studies courses.

Given the recent growth of Somali-speaking families in American schools, it is important for educators to understand how Somali families and community members experience school processes to integrate feedback and develop an appreciation for their differing perspectives. The dual perspective of Somali liaisons, with fluency in school processes and Somali culture, is also uniquely important, as they act as cultural and linguistic brokers to facilitate shared meaning in high-stakes home-school communication such as in the special education referral process. Since there is a lack of peer-reviewed studies regarding Somali experiences during special education referral communications with schools, this study aims to address this issue by exploring how Somali parent, community members, and liaisons experience the special education referral process for Somali children. Additionally, this study seeks viewpoints of Somali community members and liaisons regarding culturally responsive communication practices that schools can utilize to enhance mutual understanding. A cross-cultural communication framework is used to analyze concepts such as cultural meaning and responsive communication. Somali interviews and school communication protocols are analyzed in this qualitative study via open-coding for themes. Results suggest that there may be discrepant cultural meaning systems regarding disability and special education between the Somali community and American schools. They also suggest that the congruence of meaning systems may mediate emotional experiences for Somali families and highlight issues of differential power during the special education referral process. Lastly, data suggest several ways that schools might enhance cultural responsivity by adjusting communication practices during the special education referral process; however, this does not address the underlying issue of class-based discrimination at play.

Our contemporary world is increasingly characterized by transnational lives and cross-border connections that span various facets of human life. In light of these developments, schooling needs to be cognizant of shifts in sociocultural, political, economic, and other aspects of life. Schools are expected to prepare students for success and life in the future. Such preparation cannot be oblivious of how forces of globalization, such as increased intercultural contact, continue to contour our daily life. One area where diversity is becoming the norm is the classroom. How might a classroom serve as a space that prepares students for life in a changing and diverse world? What are some resources that could enhance classroom-based teaching and learning? The aim of this study was threefold. Firstly, it sought to respond to calls (see Agar, 1994; Bauman, 1998; Blommaert, 2010; Blommaert & Rampton, 2011; Canagarajah, 2013; Fairclough, 2006; Morrell, 2008; Scollon & Scollon, 2004; Sharifian & Jamarani, 2013) for investigating literacy in contexts characterized by diversity and mobility by spotlighting stories about selves and places that are often marginalized. Secondly, it sought to explore how students’ out-of-classroom experiences serve as rich resources in class-based intercultural literacy activities across geospatial difference. Thirdly, this study attempted to investigate how implicit and explicit sociocultural practices intersect with meaning sharing, seen through language use by students who took part in the Alaska-Kenya, asynchronous, classroom-based, online, intercultural collaboration. This collaboration which was based on a writing exchange between middle school students in two seemingly different contexts (Nairobi, Kenya; and Aleknagik, Alaska), exemplifies classroom interactions where meaning sharing and meaning making traverse geospatial and cultural boundaries. Students addressed issues that mattered deeply to them by using digital tools, and tapping into their experiences and cultural epistemologies. They took up various roles; ambassadors of self and place, narrators, inquirers, observers, critics, cultural practitioners, and as authentic audience members for each other. Through the concept of supralocalization, this study accounts for how they engaged in pragmatic, audience-oriented strategies. Notably, the selves and places represented by the students in their online exchange are variously marginalized. On the one hand, the Aleknagik students are Yup’ik and like other Alaskan Natives, their traditional practices are silenced and abnormalized in an Alaskan context characterized by intruding western practices (Ayunerak et al., 2014; Bates & Oleksa, 2008; Oleksa, 2006). On the other hand, the Kenyan students inhabit the cosmopolitan, multiethnic, multicultural city of Nairobi yet, their ways of speaking and out-of-class experiences are peripheralized in classroom spaces. Moreover, Kenyan experiences are peripheralized on a global scale as emanating from a third-world country (McLaren, 1998; Thiong’o, 1986/1991). Further, Alaska-Kenya intercultural interactions were complicated by locally-specific meanings that were not always taken up by a beyond-local interlocutor (that is, frame clashes (Agar, 1994)), and by presuppositions that students brought to those interactions (Gumperz, 1986). This present study, which relies on Vygotsky’s (1978) sociocultural learning theories and utilizes ethnography of communication (Hymes, 1972), explored these disconnects in communication through a geosemiotic discourse analysis (Scollon & Scollon, 2003) of archival data and post project reflection data. The study spotlighted the role of education in a pluralistic world by considering complexities of communicating across cultural and geospatial difference, and by making visible communicative strategies. It also exemplified an immersive, student-centered, inclusive-classroom model (Goswami, 1986) that offers opportunities for meaning sharing across difference. It is ironic that in a highly connected world, projects that emphasize connections between people in Kenya and Alaska are rare. Findings from this study have implications for pedagogy, resourcing classrooms, and for extending understandings of transcultural literacy practices in our contemporary globalizing world.

Studies of intercultural communication in applied linguistics initially focused on miscommunication, mainly between native and non-native speakers of English. The advent of the twenty-first century has witnessed, however, a revolution in the contexts and contents of intercultural communication; technological advances such as chat rooms, emails, personal weblogs, Facebook, Twitter, mobile text messaging on the one hand, and the accelerated pace of people's international mobility on the other have given a new meaning to the term 'intercultural communication'. Given the remarkable growth in the prevalence of intercultural communication among people from many cultural backgrounds, and across many contexts and channels, conceptual divides such as 'native/non-native' are now almost irrelevant. This has caused the power attached to English and native speaker-like English to lose much of its automatic domination. Such developments have provided new opportunities, as well as challenges, for the study of intercultural communication and its increasingly complex nature. This book showcases recent studies in the field in a multitude of contexts to enable a collective effort towards advancements in the area.
