The primary mission of the Center for Intercultural Dialogue is to connect Communication scholars working in different countries. One way to do this is to help scholars in one country locate short-term teaching opportunities (traditionally often during the summer) in other countries. Links to mostly general programs follow; please add others, with web sites, or add specific information about a particular short-term position as a comment. Specific opportunities will be described in individual posts rather than added to this page.
