As a communication scholar, Miriam Shoshana Sobre-Denton focuses her research on intercultural communication. She pursues various tracks that are nested under intercultural communication including cosmopolitanism and virtual cosmopolitanism, often using qualitative methods with a focus on autoethnography and the critical intercultural perspective for analysis.
