Intercultural Understanding in Professional Contexts: Insights from Mind-Brain Sciences

Come learn about culture from a scientific viewpoint you haven't heard before with the Office of International Education and the Career Center! Working effectively, or even just living, in intercultural settings requires more than superficial or feel-good approaches to diversity and cultural difference. Fortunately, insights from mind-brain sciences (e.g. cognitive neuroscience, cultural psychology) is shedding light on how we can gain deeper forms of intercultural understanding. We will look at recent research and key ideas, including: deep culture, the intuitive autopilot, and natural biases. Led by Joseph Shaules, Director of the Japan Intercultural Institute.
