Norwich University Applied Research Institutes’ (NUARI) Institute for the Study of Culture and Language (ISCL) has released its latest issue of the “Journal of Culture, Language and International Security.”
Entitled “Clash of Cultures,” the Summer 2015 issue (PDF) is the third issue of the online journal. In it, editors and writers challenge the theory advanced by the late conservative political scientist Samuel Huntington that people’s religious and cultural identities will be the primary source of global conflict in the wake of the Cold War. Instead, a diversity of contributors suggest that cultures may be the currency of international and transnational struggles and partnerships.
As in previous editions, the current issue presents articles spanning anthropology, sociology, psychology, criminal justice, international relations, economics, linguistics and other related fields.
The journal was established to enable a wide range of academics, experts and students to explore theories, disseminate research and discuss trends linking international security to bodies of knowledge in culture and language. The intended audience includes policy and decision makers, military and non-military academics, professionals and students, as well as others engaged in efforts to ensure a better understanding of the complex factors at play in a dynamic and uncertain global environment.
The publication of the journal fulfills one of NUARI’s missions: to build and share a comprehensive body of professional knowledge on research, the development of learning programs and application of culture and language considered critical to the future of U.S. military strategy and missions.
Norwich University Applied Research Institutes (NUARI) was federally chartered under legislation sponsored by Sen. Patrick Leahy in 2002 and is funded in part through the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense.
