    • 2008, Glyn M. Rimmington, Mara Alagic, Third Place Learning:
      As one is exposed to customs and practices of different cultures throughout one's life, one evolves through new intercultures. The intercultures may be regarded as steps within a continuing nonlinear process of cultural negotiation. This process involves a combination of retaining previous rules and practices, adapting some from the previous interculture and adopting some from the other culture.
    • 2013, Simone Krüger, Ruxandra Trandafoiu, The Globalization of Musics in Transit: Music Migration and Tourism:
      The practice of humbling oneself in the process of deep listening is a profound experience at the heart of affinity intercultures, the global, political, highly musical networks that happen when musicians of different backgrounds get together to play (Stanyek 2004a, 93).
    • 2016, Elizabeth Maddock Dillon, Michael Drexler, The Haitian Revolution and the Early United States:
      Murdock's play stages a struggle over the character of America's rising youth, setting its conflicts in an early national Philadelphia profoundly altered by slave revolt and the presence of problematic Creole intercultures.
