Topics in Culture Learning. Volume I, 1973.
Brislin, Richard W., Ed.
Activities of the East-West Culture Learning Institute, founded on the premise that patterns of a particular culture may be learned, are reported in Volume I of an annual publication. Papers written by the members of the Institute's staff and former Fellows describe research in progress in four major areas of concern. A paper in the area of "Thought and Expression" presents a view of what this area entails and of some potential research projects. The "Cultures in Contact" area is represented by three papers: one on the concerns of changes in individuals as a function of cultures coming into contact; a second on the individual culture-learner who voluntarily chooses to live in a culture other than his own; and a third on techniques successfully used in cross-cultural orientations. The "Cultural Identity" area is covered in a paper on issues involving identity during development of educational systems. The fourth area, "Language in Culture," includes a presentation of transformational grammar and two articles concerned with the socio-linguistic aspects of language change. A list of other Institute publications currently available and information for contributors are included in the text. (Author/KSM)
