Course summary

The Intercultural Research at Heriot-Watt 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. 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 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.

We welcome enquiries and applications from prospective research students interested in pursuing PhD studies within and across the following key areas: Intangible cultural heritages; Language policy and "new" speakers; Multimodal translation in museum spaces; Language brokering experiences; Written communication in business contexts; Uncertainty and risk in public settings / the public sphere; Film / documentary; Music and nostalgia; Cultural ecology and development; Cultural politics of the arts.
