COMM280: Intercultural Communication: Scholarly Resources

Spring 2020

Using Scholarly Research

Use Scholarly Books and Articles to flesh out your briefing. Look for answers to questions such as:

  • What are some of the big cultural touchstones of your country?
  • What are current debates or insights?
  • How has the understanding of their history or culture changed? 

Books are a great place to get a wide range of knowledge about a country or area. They can provide background, analysis, data, and more.
