As the opportunity and need to move between physical and virtual spaces has increased, more people experience the world as mobile and interconnected (see e.g. Douglas Fir Group, 2016; Kramsch & Whiteside, 2008). On the one hand, this has enabled participation in dispersed communities and markets; on the other hand, as communication, meaning making, and culture have become deterritorialized, interculturality has revealed itself as more complex than the ability to mediate across cultural differences. At the same time, patterns of mass migration and economic globalization have meant local contexts are also shaped by transnational flows of capital, knowledge, practices, and modes of communication. As a result people in today’s world must develop the capacity to negotiate and navigate dynamic demands.

In 2018, CERCLL will host the Sixth International Conference on the Development and Assessment of Intercultural Competence which will focus on Intercultural Competence and Mobility: Virtual and Physical. The conference will feature presentations and workshops that consider intercultural competence in connection with global trends of migration, travel, and digitally-enabled mobility. Of particular interest are contributions that address the changing state of intercultural competence in a mobile world.
