6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


“The concept of culture is notoriously difficult to manage, yet central to those working in intercultural communication. The webinar aims to cover some of the more recent developments in the academic field, and discuss how we can:

  • avoid oversimplifications and reductive stances,
  • take into account the possible impact of national differences alongside professional and other cultures,
  • remain attentive to the way people negotiate meanings and norms in their interactions (negotiated culture)

Finally, we will discuss how this can be translated into training or coaching sessions, which are practice-driven and move beyond the focus on differences to examine the identity and power-issues often underlying the concept of culture.”

Dr Alex Frame is associate professor in Communication Science at the Languages and Communication Faculty of the University of Burgundy (Dijon, France), where he runs the MA course in Intercultural Management (ICM). Born in Britain, he graduated from the University of Oxford in 1998, before settling in France and completing his PhD in Communication Science at the University of Burgundy, in 2008. He is a member of the TIL (“Texte, Image, Langage”) research group (EA 4182), where he specialises in intercultural communication, organisational communication, and comparative cross-cultural communication studies.
