Over the next three weeks we'll be looking at angles and parameters that are used to help us understand cultural differences. Your mid-term exam will be based mainly on this area of the subject.


You have a number of assignments to do, the capstone assignment is comparing two different cultures. Before that assignment/presentation you need to write up a review of three of the following sites.
