Intercultural Exposure

Complete a reflection paper on different intercultural exposure For this reflection paper you will need to expose yourself to a culture different than your native culture(s). These “exposures” can take a wide variety of forms, and you are allowed a bit of creative license as to their nature; but whatever you do, the exposure needs to be for longer than 20 minutes and involve substantial cultural exposure. Good examples would be watching a movie from a different culture (i.e., a movie filmed by a culture different than your own, not a movie filmed by your own culture set in a different culture), having a conversation with a person from a different culture than your own, or going to a different cultural neighbourhood (e.g., the International District of Seattle) and observing the daily life of the people that live there. The Asia University America Program (AUAP) on campus often is in search of domestic students to volunteer in their classes, so reaching out to them could be a great option as each classroom volunteering experience could count for a different exposure reflection. Bad examples of exposures (i.e., things that wouldn’t count as appropriate) would be just going to an “ethnic” food restaurant or reading a Wikipedia page about a different culture for 30 minutes. If you ever have a question about whether an exposure event would be a good choice, just email me and ask.After exposing yourself to another culture for at least 30 minutes you will be required to write a two-page (minimum), double-spaced reflection paper and submit it to one of the reflection paper submission boxes on Canvas. In each reflection paper you will briefly describe what you did to expose yourself to another culture (include the when, where, how, and how long), then focus the majority of your paper on identifying different intercultural concepts and theories in what you observed (concepts and theories are the topics we cover in lectures and the readings, see the final paper assignment document for some examples of what you could be looking at). You don’t have to do outside research for these reflection papers but be sure to focus the majority of your reflection on the connections with course-related concepts and theories. Doing so will provide you with more explicit examples to draw from for your final paper. In order to encourage your completion of exposure.

Nonverbal Communication Analysis

Analyze either a video clip or real-life scenario at a café, grocery store or other public space. Write an essay of 1200 words minimum applying the topics discussed in class. APA citations. You do not need to reference your class-notes, though if you are using specific details/quotations from the text, you should cite those. -Cite your video clip, so I can view it if needs be. -No other sources are required, but outside research always helps. Add these to your list of references. Term Paper Option 1: Video clip -Use a movie or online video clip -Suggested length: under 3 mins. Remember: you want detail not tonnes of summary and generalizations. -Can be part of a larger movie -May have audio, but don't lean on audio for analysis -No "Crazy Stupid Love" or "Friends” episodes'. Silent films are a good option. -1200 words minimum -double-spaced -Carefully proofread with correct grammar (ie: full sentences and no run-ons) 1. Introduction Provide context and summary (What is going on in the clip, overall? What is the context of this situation?) 2. Analysis (body) section -Use no more than three key concepts (ie. Kinesics, Eye Movement) from class. One, in-depth is fine. -Organize however best suits the clip (ie. Chronological or thematic) -Make sure analysis is detailed and specific. 3. Conclusion -Make any final overall conclusions about the clip. Remember: unique, thoughtful insights gain marks -Give at least one example where we might see this behaviour in real life Some questions to consider: 1. What makes this clip/movie funny? How do we know its satire? (ie. JP Spears videos, Jack Black movies,slapstick sit-coms) 2. Is this good acting? 3. Would you know what to think/feel without the soundtrack/why? 4. Based on the non-verbals, what makes this person a great actor? 5. Based on the non-verbals, how is this movie/clip ethnocentric? How does it require you to be from a specific culture to understand it? Term Paper Option 2: Real life, public place analysis -Choose a public space and analyze one or more interactions within a set time and context -APA style citations (unless your department uses otherwise…eg MLA) -1200 words minimum -double-spaced -Carefully proofread with correct grammar (ie: full sentences and no run-ons) 1. Introduction Provide context and summary (What is the context of this situation?) -Include all the pertinent details as they relate to the analysis -Offer a well-supported hypothesis (ie. I think this couple is meeting for the first time; I think the student is nervous meeting his teacher) 2. Analysis section -Organize as works best for your data (ie. Chronological or thematic). Most students lay out the basic details first and then provide the analysis. -Be sure to relate to key content/theories from the course 3. Conclusion -Provide any final overall observations. “My hypothesis was correct/incorrect” -“The implications of this analysis are…” Some avenues to consider (more to be discussed in class): 1. What are the new non-verbal conventions on social distancing seen in this place? 2. Gauging the level of suspicion/caution around social distancing in a public space 3. How people have conversations in person while also texting 4. Is this a first, second, or third date? 5. Signs of confidence versus insecurity 6. Is this a job interview, and did it go well? 7. What are non-verbals do drivers use to navigate busy intersections? 8. Can you spot different non-verbals related to status and how customers are treated in a coffees shop? 9. Pick a politician.
