Intercultural communication

Intercultural communication is a relatively new area of communication studies. Intercultural communication tries to bring together such relatively unrelated areas as cultural anthropology and established areas of communication. It's core is to establish and understand how people from different cultures communicate with each other. It's charge is to also produce some guidelines with which people from different cultures can better communicate with each other.

For example, how does a person from China communicate with a person from Turkey? Furthermore, what underlying mental constructs appear from both parties that allows for constructive communication?

Intercultural Communication, as many scholarly fields, is a combination of many other fields. These fields include anthropology, cultural studies, psychology and communication.
