Abstract [en]

Reading fiction from other cultures may open doors for new perspectives. The aim of this empirical case study was to learn if and how a cross-cultural web-baseda synchronous interactive conversation may promote intercultural awareness. This was done by providing teacher students from Sweden and the US with two fictional texts, one from each country, to be discussed on a web platform according to a set task. The study shows that the web-discussion increased the students´ critical cultural awareness. In further studies the choice of literary texts, student instructions, time management, communication language and medium have to be considered more thoroughly.
