InterculturalCom: Cultural Values: Hall's High Context / Low Context (W4-P3) Fa16

What values do we have about how we should communicate with one another?
What is the good and proper way to communicate?
One way of getting answers to these questions is to look at Hall's concepts of high/low - context.

How does this relate to a more direct and indirect communication?   Same idea?

Thunderbird School of Global Management Professor Robert Moran

Heard the phrase "reading between the lines"?  In what culture (high or low context) would you have to more often "read between the lines"?

Know of any individuals in your life you could label as high or low context communicators?

Would it be easier for a more homogeneous society to use high context communication?  Why?
