Abstract [en]

The main aim of this study is to develop some deeper understanding of the experiences of intercultural meetings and intercultural communication in the process of internationalization on higher education. The theoretical approach is based on the anatomy of culture meetings which deal with the concept of culture, the relationship between time and space, the language and the influence of the situation in the current context. An intercultural project between Russian and Swedish academic teachers and students with the purpose to arouse interest in Swedish and Russian culture was used as a case study. The method was action research oriented. To analyze the case, a reflexive methodology was used including a tri-view model of intercultural communication. An extended reflective strategy with visual aids like photos was practiced. The result shows that by using extended reflections, it was easier to avoid using stereotypes and discuss sensitive or controversial topics between teachers and students, to conclude the understanding of internationalization and intercultural communication in an intercultural project increased by developing the reflective process together with extended reflections and aesthetical aids.
