the communication among those people who

have so different cultural references that they

perceive themselves as pertaining to differnent

cultures.”1

non verbal communication1
Non-verbal communication

non-verbal language may have the

following basic functions:

1) to communicate attitudes and emotions

2) to support the sense of words

3) substitution of verbal language

it means that
It means that

1) to communicate attitudes and emotions

2) to support the sense of words

This may take place in different ways:

  • completing the sense of the words
  • controlling synchronisation

(among the different speakers of a group)

  • producing feed back
  • maintaining the attention
slide9

3) to substitute verbal language

  • body language, gestures
  • gaze behaviour
  • ...

authors, makes from 50% to 70% of direct

communication among human beings.

stereotypes
Stereotypes

Stereotypes often reflect the differences in

socioeconomic status, religion or dialect;

➡ It is important to suspend judgement, avoid

misconceptions, narrow perspectives and

immature reactions;

➡ Stereotypes often contain a grain of truth, but

cannot characterize an entire culture;

➡ Getting the whole picture of culture needs

active participation;

identity
Identity
  • Identity Is the relationship between “the I” and “the other”
  • there is no identity without the “other”
  • so: when talking about the ownidentity, we also have to consider the foreign identity
slide12

Two kinds of identity

Two kinds of identity

1. Personal identity:

based on the culture in which we were

socialized

2. Cultural identity

founded on the sense of belonging to a

community with certain characteristics

slide13

TIME BEHAVIOUR:

THE CONCEPT OF “TIME”

slide14

It means that

Two people, participating is the sametask, onemonochronic and the other

polychronic:

  • will consider the whole process from very different points of view
  • will have different objectives
  • will have different priorities
slide15

The concept of taste

What we have to take into account…

  • There are no “better” and “worse” tastes
  • There are different culinary customs
  • Each culture establishes its culinaryorder and marks food as “eatable” or “uneatable”
  • Each culture marks certain food as unacceptable
slide16

The concept of taste

  • Food is an element of cultural
  • identification. (We are what we eat.)
  • 9
  • British call French “frogs”
  • Germans call Italian “Spaghettifresser”
slide17

Spend few minutes at the end of this session answering these three reflective questions:

!What did you learn today?

!Why is that learning important to you?

!How can you make use of that learning tomorrow?
