About

The focus of our Intercultural Research at Heriot-Watt University  is on the interface between cultures. It seeks to build understanding of interactions between different cultures on a wide variety of levels, including sub-cultures, gender cultures and linguistic cultures. 

Overview

Research

Developing appreciation of the experience and discursive representation of living with, or between, different cultures, identities, communities or languages is another key area of interest.

Integral to this  Intercultural Research at Heriot-Watt University is our Intercultural Research Centre (IRC) which seeks to address key intercultural issues arising from the changing global context with a particular focus on comparative work emphasising the applied dimensions of culture, with "culture" defined broadly in anthropological terms
