This volume is dedicated to questions arising in linguistic, sociological and anthropological analyses of intercultural encounters. It aims at presenting new theoretical and methodological aspects of Intercultural Communication, focusing on issues such as ideology and hegemonial attitudes, communicative genres and culture specific repertoires of genres, the theory of contextualization and nonverbal (prosodic, gestural, mimic) contextualization cues. The collected articles, which share an interactive view of language, focus on the methodological possibilities of explanatory analyses of intercultural communication. They address the question of how participants in inter-cultural communication (re)construct cultural differences and cultural identities.
Empirical analyses go hand-in-hand with the discussion of methodological and theoretical aspects of interculturality and the relationship of language and culture.

Table of Contents
“These articles are carefully edited and well-researched contributions to the field. Anyone interested in doing further work in this area would be well advised to consult this book.”
“This volume has certainly opened new avenues of future research on intercultural communication. [...] with both theoretical and empirical approaches going hand in hand, this is an innovative and in many ways thought-provoking collection of papers and would surely be embraced by scholars and students of anthropology, sociology, cultural psychology and (interpretive) sociolinguistics.”
