    Dear Tony

    Can’t make your inaugural event I’m afraid, but for what they’re worth here are some responses on the q’s you raised. Most of them are of the “it depends…” variety which is to be expected since the aim(s) and the context(s) of IC research are crucial.

    <<We are hoping to explore questions such as:

    § How can we study groups without a priori categorisation?
    In an absolute sense we can't, unless we choose a research site randomly and hang about to see what "emerges". But a population in a given site will, depending on the skill of the researcher, reveal their own categorisation of groups (which may well be X-cutting of course).

    § To what extent is multimodality/mixed methodology desirable/possible/necessary in IC research?
    It depends, but exclusively quantitative data is of very limited value.

    § 'Hofstedean' analysis is so seductive for many of our students, why is this the case, and what are its implications for teaching and research?
    It's seductive because it's easy to understand and corresponds to previous "ways of looking at the world". But see comment on stereotyping below.

    § To what extent is it possible to apply three identifiable but competing paradigms: the social science, interpretive and critical approach to research and practice
    Why is it important to have an answer to this question?
    § Is essentialism essential in IC research?
    Probably inevitable, although definitions tend to be over-simple. Fear of stereotyping should not paralyse research in this field. Language in particular may be regarded as having qualities if "essentialism" in respect to identity (and identification).
    § What are the implications of non-western perspectives on human communication for theory and practice?
    I don't know, but "western" perspectives are themselves far from monolithic.

  2. Great new website. Well done! Looking forward to participating in upcoming BAAL IC SIG events this year.
