Topics in Cultural Learning, Volume 2, 1974.
Brislin, Robert W., Ed.
The twelve papers included in this second volume of Topics in Culture are related to the Institute's four areas of research interest: cultural identity, cultures in contact, language in culture, and thought and expression in cultural learning. The articles also examine one or more of four themes which transcend the four research areas: learning one's own culture, learning about another culture, formal educational programs in culture learning programs. The first theme is represented by a survey of cross-cultural research, analysis of which gives insights into one's own culture. Next, four papers on learning about another culture provide specific criteria and examples of such learning, for instance, when to use first names and nicknames. In the third topic, four papers discuss programs to preserve cultures, especially with respect to their indigeneous languages and intellectual manpower. The several papers on the fourth topic of issues in culture learning discuss the politics of cultural pluralism, the effect of participation in bicultural education, and the motives of people engaged in bilingual-bicultural programs.
