Inhalt: In this seminar you will have the opportunity to explore how culture shapes perception and behaviour. In the first half of the seminar we will critically examine theories of culture, and interculture communication to determine their usefulness and limitations. Furthermore we will discuss the problems that might arise from models and theories based on Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, and Democratic (WEIRD) societies. In the second half of the seminar you will develop and test a culture awareness training based on scientific findings. Participating in this seminar allows students to gain credits for the Fremdsprachenzertifikat (ZiKS).

Travel as intercultural dialogue? A qualitative investigation (FSL) (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Michael Dellwing, Paul Lauer

wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 18:15 - 19:45 | 18.10.2023 - 02.02.2024 | C 12.006 Seminarraum

Inhalt: Travelling, we assume, broadens the mind. It means learning about other cultures. But does it? In this seminar we will investigate when and how travelling can facilitate a meaningful dialogue between cultures. We will be taking a qualitative approach that begins by exploring our own and others' stories of travel before moving on to consider reflections by travel writers (and influencers), the voices of those we visit, and finally the practices of those offering "cultural tours". Theory from such topics as everyday life sociology, multiculturality, reflexivity, and the "tourist gaze" will underpin your gathering and interpreting of empirical material as, in very small groups of three, you develop your own concept of culturally meaningful travel and decide how to best communicate it to a broader public beyond academia.
