In Chapter 1 of your textbook, we covered the concept of intercultural praxis. In this paper:
1) Please explain, in your own words, how you understand this concept. Address all the 6 entry points. Do you think this concept is a sufficient guide for intercultural communication in our interconnected world? What are its strengths and weaknesses? Can you improve upon it? (2 pages)
2) Describe one intercultural encounter from your life that involved intercultural praxis. Explain clearly what entry points of intercultural praxis played out in this encounter. How did you grow as an intercultural communicator from this experience? (1.5 pages)
3) Explain the concept of positionality. Reflect on your own positionality and cultural identity. Based on this reflection, describe what social justice issues are important to you personally in this world, and briefly explain why. How are you positioned to make a difference regarding this issue?
