Charalambous & Rampton


This paper examines the relation between language learning and intercultural communication by exploring the interface of language, identity and culture in conflict-ridden contexts.? Focusing on languages associated with interethnic animosity, it aims to identify the challenges to established theories of language and culture teaching presented by contexts of conflict, and it discusses the role of language education in overcoming such hostility.
