muted group theory
individuals who do not belong to the dominant group are often silenced by a lack of opportunities to express their experiences, perceptions, and world views
described by Yehuda Amir as 4 conditions that are likely to lead positive attitudes as a result of intercultural communication
to sustain intercultural contact that requires one to totally emerse in another culture
the pattern of accomodation and a culturation that results from people's contact experiences with another culture
occurs when it is deemed relatively unimportant to maintain one's original cultural identity, but it is important to establish and maintain relationships with other cultures
when an individual or group retains its original cultural identity while seeking to maintian harmonious relationshis with other cultures
if a culture does not want a positive relationship with another culture and if it also wishes to retain its cultural characteristics
if the separation occurs it is because the more politically and economically powerful culture does not want the intercultural contact
a non dominant group that choosres not to participate in the large of society in order to retain its own way of life (Amish)
when individuals or groups neither retain their cultureal heritage not maintain positive contacts with other groups
