The 3rd quantity within the sequence communique approaches engages in realizing strategies of communique when it comes to cultural configurations and contending forces that permeate them. This quantity is situated on the interface of tradition and communication-exploring ways that interplay, negotiations, or even conflicts are voiced. It re-examines our perception of tradition to teach that groups can't be divided into polarities akin to elite and well known or dominant and subaltern -establishing that such transparent divisions can't exist in society. tradition is hence perceived as a box of contending forces: a milieu of trade, come across, disagreement, and probably clash.

Example text

Communication as cultural process is a concept altogether different from communication as pattern of interaction or system of symbolic exchange.
