Submit your paper to the Relationship Analysis Paper dropbox by the due date listed in the syllabus.

Part I

Identify two existing relationships, one intercultural* and one that is of your own culture. The relationships can be either plutonic or romantic. *Keep in mind, this does not have to be ethnic differences—consider all types of culture
Describe the nature of each relationship (e.g., how long it has existed, how often you are in contact, extent of closeness).
Compare and contrast the communication that occurs within the relationships. Apply at least two specific communication concepts that we have covered in class. Identify and define the concepts; and give examples for each.
Part II

Discuss an event that has included conflict within either of the relationships (intercultural or same-culture). Describe the event in detail.
Explain the nature of the conflict, the conflict style you and the other individual used, and manner the conflict was resolved (i.e., win-lose, lose-lose, compromise, win-win). If the conflict was unresolved, explain why you and the other individual could not come to resolution.
