About the research project

Cross-cultural communication has gained increasing prominence as communities and regions become more globally connected. Any analyses of our contemporary cultures are inadequate without taking into consideration their cross-cultural implications. This project promotes research that rigorously examines the interconnectedness of cultural phenomena across cultures, and contributes to the local and global communities that value multi-culturalism, diversity, and social inclusion. This research project is supported by academics with expertise on Asia and Europe, and will welcome candidates who are interested in one or more of the following areas:

  • language, translation, and cross-cultural communication
  • global gender and sexuality
  • transnational media and popular culture
  • literature and the environment
  • intercultural literature
