Culture, Cognition and the Intercultural Mind—New Paradigms from Cognitive Neuroscience

Thu Oct 19, 2017
10:45 AM - 12:00 PM
Kona Room

Description

New research in cognitive neuroscience is revolutionizing our understanding of culture and mind. This creates challenges and opportunities for intercultural trainers and educators as paradigms are shifting. This workshop will introduce new insights in culture and cognition that can inform intercultural training and education. It will reexamine basic concepts from this new perspective, including: definitions of culture, cultural difference, bias, language and culture, culture and identity. We will learn about new approaches to intercultural research, and see how it can inform intercultural training and education, and how this new body of knowledge can be applied.
