“Halualani’s Intercultural Communication completes the evolution of critical thinking in foundational learnings of the subject. From candid narratives to simplified models in understanding culture, the text offers students what they need to enact change and spark action locally and nationally.
Thinking critically is a large component of the course I teach. [I chose Halualani’s text because] I wanted to provide my students with a deeper understanding for intercultural communication, beyond the standard culture, power, identity theories. My students need the critical thinking skills to develop solutions and provide answers for today’s most important issues facing communities across the nation.
This text is current and most needed for today’s discussions about intercultural justice and how to develop solutions in real-time by utilizing academic models. … Halualani constructed a well-executed and beautifully researched text. I will continue supporting her work.”
