Commencing 2: Decluttering Concepts
Oct 12, 2020 Episode 16

"The more words you use, the less sense you make - how does that help anyone?" (Ecc 6:11). Apparently most intercultural researchers, theorists and trainers missed that wee verse. Intercultural competency. Cultural intelligence. Cultural humility. Constructive marginality. Intercultural sensitivity.  .  . 

This episode wanders into the swirling stream of concepts, hoping  to find out how all these can work together to give us some practical insights and tools to help us build strong mutual relationships across cultural divides. 

While a show on 'concepts' may seem a close rival to watching paint dry - this stuff actually matters - it shapes both how we encounter the stranger, and how these encounters shape us.
