Obeng and Hartford (both linguistics, Indiana U., Bloomington) present the inaugural volume of Issues in Intercultural Communication, a journal for scholars and students which focuses on how cross-cultural interactions are enacted in various social domains, how they constitute and reflect the cultures from which they emerge, and how participants in intercultural interactions position themselves or find themselves positioned through their discursive actions. Six papers by seven American and African academics examine the metaphors shaping perceptions of HIV/AIDs in Tanzania; the cultural underpinnings of the works of Nigerian author Ola Rótìmí and Kenyan author Ngugi wa Thiong'o; language in social interaction in Akan (Ghana and the Ivory Coast) and Dagomba (Ghana); discursive strategies in the palace of a Northern Ghanaian King; and influences on the choices made by speakers when addressing others in Akan and Ewe (Ghana and the Republic of Togo).
