The 26th Nordic Intercultural Communication (NIC) Conference

This time the overarching theme of the conference is centred on exploring cultural diversity and intercultural sustainability. The conference predominantly but not exclusively addresses the intercultural communication challenges and opportunities as illuminated, for instance, by international migration and diversity. Unfortunate by-products of these processes often are anger, fear, and societal division.  The conference seeks to foreground the understanding of ways in which communities could be both diverse and integrated. The specific emphasis is on the notion of joint living in instead of merely with diversity in a variety of realms, including practices of everyday interaction, education, policymaking, language and communication training, media, and so forth.
