ANTHR 2472 - Engaging Other Cultures: Learning How to Learn About Cultural Differences

Spring. 3 credits.

N. Mahajan.

Engaging Other Cultures develops understandings and skills required to live and work in diverse cultural and organizational contexts, abroad and at home.  Learning to deal effectively with linguistic, organizational, and cultural differences opens us up to the creative range of human beings and helps us learn from others in secure, analytical, and self-reflective ways.  The course introduces basic anthropological and linguistic perspectives on cultural and organizational differences, ethnographic fieldwork techniques,  ethnographic writing through ethnographic practice, with some attention to the language learning process.  It is a general education course with particular orientation to those studying abroad and/or working domestically or locally in organizational and cultural contexts new to them.
