1. Flacy, Kathleen Anne. Education or Educaci?n? A Comparative Analysis of the Discourses of Latino/A Students and Three Community Colleges.

Degree: 2014, Texas A&M University

The main question addressed in this dissertation relates to the discourses that Latino/a students and community colleges bring to the educational table. From this question come corollary questions concerning the concept of education and the linguistic and cultural realities that inform the conception of educaci?n. Using theories of cognition, metaphor, and sociocultural linguistics, this dissertation illustrates that overlaps and divergences in the semantic conceptualization of the constructs of education and educaci?n, as well as their actualizations in practice, are informed by the habits of categorization that are held by persons involved in the American educational system and by students who come from the various Latino/a communities in the United States. In what might be termed the contact zone of education and educaci?n this dissertation addresses the questions of discursive stasis, resistance, transcultural negotiation, values hierarchies, and positive discourses that contribute to individuals? success?defined as achievement of the goals of the individual within the educational milieu. Examination of the rhetorical and discourse literacies that underlie the communicative habits and expectations of Latino/a students and the instructors, administrators, and the community colleges involved in this study shows that educaci?n socializes individuals to value familismo, personalismo, simpat?a, respeto, confianza, cortes?a, humilidad, and empat?a. Community colleges that address these values supportively do so by engaging in positive discourses not only in their written forms, but in terms of institutional and classroom level actions.

2. Johansson, Malin. Culture is communication.

Degree: Media and it, 2009, Södertörn University College

I den här uppsatsen har jag undersökt internkommunikationen på ett multikulturellt företag för att se hur olika kulturer visar sig i olika förhandlingsstilar. Mitt material har bestått av sexton mejl mellan en tysk och en svensk affärsman från det multikulturella företaget Volkswagen. Mina frågeställningar var: 1. Skiljer sig Sch och Joh:s sätt att formulera sig och vilken betydelse får det i så fall för förhandlingen? 2. Vilka förhandlingsstilar används? Vad får de för konsekvenser? 3. Hade genomtänkta retoriska strategier kunnat effektivisera förhandlingens gång och i så fall vilka? För att svara på frågorna har jag gjort en stilanalys kompletterad av en strukturell analys. Jag har även gjort en förhandlingsanalys och till sist undersökt de två kulturerna genom en jämförelse. Min uppsats lutar sig mot Hofstedes teori om kulturella dimensioner samt Ghauris teori om förhandlingens tre faser, för att nämna några.   Viktiga slutsatser är att det finns större och mer betydelsefulla skillnader mellan tyskar och svenskar än väntat. Jag har också kommit fram till att kurser i förhandlingsteknik kan visa sig vara lönsamma för multikulturella företag och det är det jag vill förmedla med den här uppsatsen.   

In this essay I want to investigate the internal communication of an transcultural company to see how different cultures are shown in different styles of negotiation. I have been looking at sixteen emails between a German businessman and a Swedish businessman, both working at the transcultural company Volkswagen. The essay’s research questions are: 1. Do the German and the Swede differ when it comes to manner of speaking, and if so, how does that effect the negotiation?  2. Which styles do they use in negotiation? What kind of consequences do the styles cause? 3. Would carefully prepared rhetorical strategies make the negotiation more effective, and in that case, which strategies would that be? To answer these questions I have made a stylistic and a structural analysis, followed by an analysis of the negotiation style and strategies. At last I studied the two cultures and made a comparison between them. I have built my essay on the theory of cultural dimensions by Hofstede and Ghauri’s idea about the phases of negotiation, to mention a few. Conclusions I’ve made are that there are bigger differences between Germans and Swedes then I expected. I’ve also seen that education in negotiation could be profitable for transcultural companies, which I with this essay would like to convey.
