Omschrijving This course introduces third year students in the M&M programme to the concept and associated techniques of diversity management. The focus is on linguistic and cultural diversity, as well as on the interplay of both in diversity management and intercultural communication, taking into account socio-economic considerations and relations of power. Throughout the course, we will explore examples of diversity management and how intercultural communication may take place in practice. These will include different types of workplace and various organisational situations.

Alongside academic reflection on diversity management as an object of study, using concepts, theories and notions from the field of intercultural communication, we will look for ways to apply this knowledge in a practical manner to contemporary issues that may be relevant in these domains.
