9781412927444: Intercultural Communication: Globalization and Social Justice

Intercultural Communication: Globalization and Social Justice, by Kathryn Sorrells, introduces students to the complex relationships, structures, and contexts that shape intercultural communication in the new millennium. This book examines intercultural communication within the geopolitical, economic, and cultural context of globalization and offers a dynamic and complex understanding of culture to address the the many challenges we face today―from discrimination, racial profiling, and ethnic conflict to wealth disparities locally and globally. This book takes a social justice approach and provides a framework to create a more fair and equitable world through communication.

About the Author:

Kathryn Sorrells is Professor of Communication Studies at California State University, Northridge (CSUN), and is currently serving as Department Chair. She teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in intercultural communication, critical pedagogy, performance, cultural studies, and feminist theory. She combines critical/cultural studies and postcolonial perspectives to explore issues of culture, race, gender, class, and sexuality. Kathryn grew up in Georgia; has lived in different regions of the United States; has studied and worked in Brazil, Japan, Turkey and China; and has traveled extensively in Asia, Europe, and parts of Latin America. The critical, social justice approach she uses to study and practice intercultural communication is informed by her experiences growing up in the South during the tumultuous and transformative civil rights movement and her subsequent participation in the antiwar; women’s; lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT); and labor and immigrant rights movements. Kathryn has published a variety of articles related to intercultural communication, globalization, and social justice and is co-editor along with Sachi Sekimoto of Globalizing Intercultural Communication: A Reader (Sage, 2015). She has been instrumental in organizing a campus-wide initiative on Civil Discourse and Social Change at CSUN aimed at developing students’ capacities for civic engagement and social justice. Kathryn is a recipient of numerous national, state, and local community service awards for founding and directing Communicating Common Ground, an innovative service learning project that provided students opportunities to develop creative alternatives to intercultural conflict. Additionally, Kathryn has experience as a consultant and trainer for nonprofit, profit and educational organizations in the areas of intercultural communication and multicultural learning.

 

Review:

."..It was a pleasure to read and teach from a book on intercultural communication that takes into account contemporary and historical forces and contexts of globalization and issues of social justice....My students loved the book. They were inspired to engage in self-reflection and critical analysis, finding Sorrells' prose clear and examples compelling"--Robbin Crabtree (04/02/2012)

Kathryn Sorrells provides readers with new ways of enacting intercultural communication in the context of globalization. Her writing embodies the spirit of 'praxis'-a process of critical analysis, reflection, and action-that transcends the traditional approach to communicating across cultures. Sorrells' contribution is enormous and indispensable if the field of intercultural communication is to remain relevant and meaningful in the lives of our students.--Sachi Sekimoto (04/23/2012)

Teaching from an intercultural textbook that utilizes a critical, social justice perspective, and one that is grounded in the reality of globalization is so refreshing. Students relate very well to the contemporary examples Sorrells utilizes and to the organization of this text, which is very intuitive in its design, differing greatly from earlier textbooks in that aspect. One distinct advantage of the textbook is the clarity of the writing without any compromises on the complexity of the concepts and arguments. I love teaching from it because it raises the level of discussion sparked in the classroom and because the intercultural praxis model motivates students to apply what they are learning. It is a text that reframes conversations in the field in ways that just make sense! I enthusiastically recommend it.--Sheena Malhotra (04/23/2012)

Sorrells provides a valuable foundation for a full understanding of contemporary issues...The approaches used in this text will keep readers engaged and reflective throughout the text. Intercultural Communication: Globalization and Social Justice addresses pertinent issues and is certainly an important and valuable addition to the field.--Wendy V. Chug (02/13/2013)

"I've been waiting for this text for a long time and I haven t found another text that takes on intercultural communication in a global, engaged way."--Alexa M. Dare (09/30/2011)"

Thank you for your amazing book, 'Intercultural Communication:
Globalization and Social Justice, ' which I finally finished reading this week - cover to cover. Your book gave me much-needed perspective and guidance as I communicate with my associates in Africa, India and Mexico, trying to complete my global documentary film this summer.--Alexis Krasilovsky (07/14/2012)

"I've been waiting for this text for a long time and I haven't found another text that takes on intercultural communication in a global, engaged way."--Alexa M. Dare (09/30/2011)

One of the best parts of using this textbook is that Kathryn does not shy away from tackling the real issues that impact students, their lives and their livelihoods today. ... she is also so thorough and diligent in her presentation of material that she manages to make the complex issues easier to understand and connect with - both for my students and me.--Hengameh Rabizadeh (04/23/2012)
