In this workshop, you will learn how to take into account not only the content and structure of your communication but also the ways in which context plays an important role in communication. We will discuss the conventions for professional communication in different cultures, particularly cultures where you are likely to present your work, and how awareness of these conventions is essential to make you an effective global communicator, particularly in professional settings. Please contact Peter Fontaine (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need more information. *This workshop is directed towards graduate students. Postdocs are welcome as walk-ins as space allows.
