Last week I spoke to a group of Honors Students at the University of Northwestern – St. Paul. The topic was “Social, Cultural, and Spiritual Issues in China and Implications for Teaching.”
To get things going I showed them these fantastic graphic representations of cultural differences between east and west. I’ve actually used them in cross-cultural training for years, but am just now getting around to posting about them. Whether the audience is western or Chinese, they always generate lots of interesting discussion. (blue – west, red = east)
They were done by a Chinese artist who has lived and worked in Germany for many years. You can read an interview with her here.
