Back to the (intercultural) Future with Dr. Milton Bennett
In her “Writing the Intellectual History of Intercultural Communication” (2008) Wendy Leeds-Hurwitz states:
“We need to know our past, not for its own sake, but so that we learn why we study what we do in the ways we do, and so that we can consider making changes to our current assumptions and practices based on what we discover.”
Encouraged by questions from Grant Douglas, vice-president of SIETAR France, and from the audience, Milton will take us on a journey “back to the intercultural future” to explore where we are coming from as a field, where we are now and where we could or should be heading in the future.
Dr. Milton J. Bennett founded and directs the Intercultural Development Research Institute located in Washington State, USA and Milan, Italy (http://www.idrinstitute.org). He previously founded and co-directed the Intercultural Communication Institute and the Summer Institute for Intercultural Communication in Portland, Oregon. He is now an adjunct professor of sociology at the University of Milano Bicocca and a consultant on intercultural topics to corporations, universities, and exchange organizations in Europe, Asia, and the US.
Dr. Bennett studied physics, cognitive psychology, and creative writing as part of his BA degree from Stanford University, has an MA in psycholinguistics from San Francisco State University and holds one of the first Ph.D.’s in intercultural communication (University of Minnesota). His most recent text is Basic Concepts of Intercultural Communication: Paradigms, Principles, and Practices (Intercultural Press, 2013) which is translated into Italian (Franco Angeli Press, 2015) and Chinese (Peking University Press, 2012). He has published over 70 other articles, chapters, and books on various intercultural topics.
