Lily A.

Her area of expertise is intercultural communication with a background in psychology and mathematics.


This book is a lot like watching the magic of carpet weaving. Dr. Lily Arasaratnam carefully selects the silk threads that tie perception, communication and intercultural spaces together. She dyes the threads in brilliant shades of red, blue, and yellow, representing the history, contributions and insights of scholars from communication, psychology, and linguistics. Then, like a master weaver, Dr. Arasaratnam weaves complex patterns and ideas with ease and conviction. We are transported to a space, a place, filled with events, stories, dialogue and discovery. As Dr. Arasratnam so profoundly points out, in this intercultural world of ours, perception counts. -- Professor Nagesh Rao, Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, India
Intercultural communication has become a part of our daily life. Too often textbooks have been written from a single cultural point of view. Lily Arasaratnam's book is a fortunate exception. It makes the reader a world citizen who chapter after chapter understands more of the puzzle of intercultural relations. -- Professor Jan Pieter van Oudenhoven, President-elect of the International Academy of Intercultural Relations
An insightful approach to intercultural communication. Readers can expect to enhance their understanding of intercultural communication as it applies to their own personal narratives and experiences. Arasaratnam artfully blends the theoretical and conceptual into practical applications. This book covers the essential material for a wide-ranging examination of intercultural communication and all its complexities. -- Professor James W. Neuliep, Communication and Media Studies, St. Norbert College, Wisconsin
