Understanding Sri Lanka: A Cultural Examination Handbook for Peace Corps Volunteers.
Lanning, Kristina
The handbook is designed to help Peace Corps volunteers in Sri Lanka examine and understand the culture of that country. It looks at five general areas of culture relevant to everyday living (personal appearance, social invitations, work attitudes and relationships, interpersonal interaction and communication, and harassment) and analyzes them from four perspectives: the significant features or standards; practical ways to adjust one's own behavior; using observation of cultural similarities and differences to make inferences; and examining one's own standards and preferences. The first two perspectives are addressed with narrative explanation; the last two are offered in the form of questions. (MSE)
