Bibliography on Transcultural and Intercultural Competence for Spanish CSL Research and Practice

by Ann Abbott

This blog's running bibliography on Spanish community service learning (CSL) is one of its most-accessed posts. I'm happy that people find it a useful resource.

Now, I'd like to do the same for a bibliography on transcultural and intercultural competence.  Although cultural competence and intercultural competence are terms that have long been used, researched and theorized, the MLA's 2007 special report on "Foreign Language and Higher Education: New Structures for a Changed World" has prompted a new wave of work on the topic.  I am particularly interested in how Spanish CSL does/does not influence students' developing transcultural competence.

This bibliography may be a bit messy at first.  There are many publications, and I may find that I need to organize them in different categories than what I can envision right now.  Plus, I'm going to just jump and start adding sources to the bibliography, but I may later remove them if I find that they do not seem related in some way to Spanish CSL. Please write a comment with your suggestions for both the organization of the bibliography as well as individual items within it.
