Find a recent situation in which a conflict related
Find a recent situation in which a conflict related to cultural differences occurred. You can find the situation by asking a friend if they have had any experiences, looking into the news/media for an example, or relating a personal experience you witnessed. In a total of 500-750 words, write out the details of the conflict as communicated by the source of the story.
- Based on your research in intercultural communication, explain why you think the conflict arose (reference at least one source from the textbook and/or scholarly articles on intercultural conflict to back up your recommendations).
- Explain the role of mass media and/or new media in shaping the conflict (e.g., Is one communicator responding to a negative, stereotyped view of the other?). Explain the connections between the communication behaviors of each individual in this conflict scenario and their differing worldviews.
- Write out a consultation (250-500 words from the total), outlining what the communicators in the conflict scenario need to know or do to best handle the conflict. Be specific in your recommendations and justify them with scholarly evidence (when you justify, explain what ethical considerations should be taken into account when handling the situation described in the case study). Two academic sources are required for the consultation.
Two to three academic sources are required for the consultation.
