January 17, 2023 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Tuesday, Jan. 17
12:00 to 1:00 pm
Arts 368 | Zoom

The Institute for Community Engaged Research is excited to welcome visiting scholar Dr. Farrah Bérubé, who will  lead the next discussion in the Starting a Conversation series: Intercultural Communication in the Digital Age.

Dr. Bérubé  supervises more and more graduate students who are interested in the many and varied issues of intercultural communication. She observes that her students are increasingly choosing to work on the impacts, contributions, and issues of the digital in intercultural communication situations. With good reason, interculturality benefits greatly from digital technology and digital technology generates more intercultural exchanges. Since the advent of digital technology, situations of intercultural relations have multiplied, become more complex, imposed and invented.

In this Starting the Conversation, Dr. Bérubé will explore how digital technology participates in intercultural exchanges and how it hinders these exchanges.

Bio: An associate professor at Department of Literature and Social Communication at Université du Québec à Trois Rivières, Farrah Bérubé is also a researcher at the Laboratory for Intercultural Relations Research (LABRRI) based at the Université de Montréal. Her expertise focuses on the space and treatment of human diversity in media and on the uses of media by immigrants (media representations of human diversity, uses and production of media by immigrants). She co-coordinated a 2-volume special issue in “Communiquer” dealing with intercultural and international communication.

Everyone is welcome!
