RICHARD E. PORTER (Ph.D., University of Southern California) is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Communication Studies at California State University, Long Beach. He developed his interest in intercultural communication in 1967 before there was an established field of study. His early work along with that of other pioneers in the field laid a basic structural foundation which has been used by many later scholars as the field developed and expanded. He created and taught undergraduate and graduate courses in intercultural communication for 30 years. Dr. Porter is the co-author and editor of 4 books with 24 editions that deal with the subject of intercultural communication.
