CMM 275 Asian Perspectives of the Self: Understand how native language(s) and cultural expectations influence our perception and communication. Draw on relational dynamics in multiple Asian traditions to explore dynamic connection and mutual respect. Students conduct personal research and do partnered teaching.

Full Course Description: This course invites students to examine how our cultural norms such as our native language(s) and cultural expectations influence our perception and orientations toward one another. We will explore how to create opportunities for connection and mutual respect while communicating across cultures, drawing from relational dynamics from multiple Asian traditions, beginning our exploration with Chinese philosophers. By moving through intercultural communication in these ways, we will strive to expand our toolbox of interpersonal skills through conceptual and discursive knowing, via reflection journals, personal research, and partnered teaching.
