Learning as Othering: Narratives of Learning, Construction of Difference and the Discourse of Immersion in Study Abroad
Doerr, Neriko Musha
Intercultural Education, v28 n1 p90-103 2017
This article shows ethnographically the process of learning "as othering" in study abroad: acknowledgement of "learning" through immersion--without clear structure or markers of learning--constructs cultural difference of the host society. It is because acknowledgement of learning something is necessarily the acknowledgement of the prior ignorance about it due to difference. Study abroad thus privileges particular types of difference in the name of learning them, under-appreciating domestic minorities' cultural differences.
