Intercultural Blog Carnival: Call for Submissions


With the launch of last June’s Intercultural Blog Carnival (IBC), globally minded netizens got a chance to feast on a range of articles on how to make adjustments to life in a new country. Eight international experts shared blog posts hosted by Lindsay McMahon at This week, we’re ready to officially welcome submissions to our latest IBC. The topic this time: how language and culture are interrelated. These submissions will be posted online December 5.

Intercultural writers are invited to share tips for global readers at the intersection of language and culture with me via email here. These can be new pieces written specifically for this carnival, or they can be already written posts from your blog which directly relate to this theme.
