Professor Guido Rings

Professor Guido Rings' in-depth expertise in the field of intercultural communication has certainly enriched the learning experience of MA students in this area. Professor Guido Rings provided several recommendations for gaining textual and contextual understanding of films that delve into intercultural interactions within the context of worldwide migration. These recommendations encompass cultivating a perceptive comprehension of the theoretical body of work centred on intercultural interactions in film and various narrative mediums. Additionally, they involve investigating, synthesizing, and articulating cinematic portrayals of intercultural encounters and the process of identity negotiation.

TLU BFM and Anglia Ruskin University (located in Cambridge, United Kingdom) are both grounded in the core principles of fostering intercultural collaboration and promoting innovation. These principles serve as the basis for implementing creative ideas and solutions within the European Masters in Intercultural Communication programme.
