Beneath the Surface: A Beginner’s Guide to the Deep Culture Experience: Joseph Shaules
INTERCULTURAL PRESS, 2010
The underlying philosophy of Beneath the Surface: A Beginner’s Guide to the Deep Culture Experience is that an opportunity is missed whenever we choose to travel as a “tourist” rather than embracing the challenges of cultural learning – a process of adapting to a new culture and the lessons learned as a result.
Beneath the Surface was written by intercultural trainer, professor and author Joseph Shaules with sojourners, like study-abroad students, expatriates, immigrants and all other long-term visitors, in mind. It is both a practical guide on how to have a deep cultural experience abroad as well as an interesting investigation into what, exactly, “deep culture” means and how understanding this concept can yield valuable benefits for every traveller.Add this article to your reading list
