Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: In the major theory courses we don't cover cultural stuff, we cover more interpersonal... more media, and a few organizational kinds of theories... I think in this case just having a course that lets us go in depth more on a lot of those kinds of ideas... we are going to talk about individualism and collectivism as dimensions of culture. We already spent time talking about this notion of similarity and difference between, but also within, cultures. How do we understand variance within a culture? We're slotted to spend much more time on things like self construal. How do you understand yourself in relation to other people? That's one of the components of the first writing assignment... having them talk about, in that cultural autobiography... How do you see your self-construal? Do you see it as more independent. Do you see it as more interdependent? And how do you link that to culture? By about week three of first semester, I stopped expecting to find anything... and I just started seeing what happened, because it was clear that expecting anything wasn't getting me anywhere.
