Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: I'd say if there's an overarching goal, it's for students to gain a framework for understanding their own experience. What's most important and what I want students to take away from this course is an understanding of how these frameworks and these ideas and these concepts can help them make sense of their everyday experiences. When I'm walking down the street and somebody does this thing that I think is strange, what's going on? Why am I reacting in the way that I do? Recognizing, for example, the symptoms of culture shock when you go somewhere else... I talk about theory and constructs and classes being like a pair of glasses that you can put on... as a lens that you can see things through, a way to understand your experience more clearly... We are the only Communicology department in the nation.
