All linguists know how different the world may look through the prism of different languages. This difference sometimes makes us curious and attracted to an unknown culture, or may give ground to intercultural misunderstandings and miscommunication, or even complete failure. The cause of misunderstanding is the dissimilar cultural or ethnic-specific images of the world investigated by Russian Ethnopsycholinguistics since the early 1970s.
The program is implemented in cooperation with the Institute of Linguistics of the Russian Academy of Science, Department of Psycholinguistics. Students have the unique opportunity to gain first-hand information from founding Russian scholars in the field.
Based on the Theory of Linguistic Image of the World and the Lacuna Theory, students will develop their own effective communication strategies to overcome barriers in the path of mutual understanding and cooperation. They will investigate cases from varying cross-cultural settings including professional fields such as business, medicine, law, mass media, and so on.Career opportunities
