CULTURE AND THE UNCONSCIOUS

[Instructor]
Joseph Shaules

[Course Guide]

Sub Title:

Looking for the hidden roots of cultural difference

Course Description:

Culture has two sides, a visible side - food, clothing, architecture - and a hidden side of unconscious beliefs, values and assumptions. In this course we will learn the story of the discovery of hidden culture. We will explore culture's unconscious influence over us, and see how hidden cultural difference creates conflict in relationships and communication. This will involve learning hidden patterns of cultural difference related to things like: time, personal space, cooperation, independence, fairness, equality, emotion. Students will discuss their intercultural experiences, share their opinions and give presentations. The ultimate goal of this course is a deeper self-understanding.

Classes: 12
One 90-minute class per week
