Descrizione
Our Voices: Essays in Culture, Ethnicity, and Communication examines intercultural communication through an array of cultural and personal perspectives, with each of its contributors writing a first-person account of his or her experiences in the real world. While most readers are collections of scholarly essays that describe intercultural communication, Our Voices presents short, student-oriented readings chosen with an eye toward engaging the reader. Collectively, the readings tackle the key areas of communication-rhetoric, mass communication, and interpersonal communication-using a uniquely expansive and humanist perspective that provides a voice to otherwise marginalized members of society. Praised by students for its abundance of short, first-person narratives, Our Voices traverses topics as diverse as queer identity, racial discourse in the United States, "survival mechanisms " in Jamaican speech, and codes of communication in nontraditional families. NEW TO THIS EDITION: *New essays on the Obama presidency, Osage naming rituals, Muslim feminist perspectives, South Asian Indian women in the workplace, class identity, and the Haitian tragedy in a global context *Expanded treatment of Arab Americans and the Muslim world *Reworked coverage of 9/11 to accommodate our most current understanding and scholarship Empowering and educating students in equal measure, Our Voices is an ideal reader for any intercultural communication course.
