The World Bank white paper reading mentions a “Communication Theory of Identity,” which understands cultural identities as enacted or performed.
Describe a significant way that you enact your cultural identity.
What is involved? (What do you do or say to express it)?
What about this helps establish you sense of identity?
Why is it important to you? Would you be willing to abandon this long-term if it made others around you uncomfortable? Why/why not?
Culture Shock: Describe the experience you’ve had where you’ve felt most culturally isolated. What exactly made you feel out of place or disconnected? What was the experience like? How did you cope? Would you approach the situation differently today? How so? Adichie warns of the danger of a “single story.” Additionally, please provide at least one real-world strategy for promoting an awareness of a diversity of stories about people who mainstream culture often sees in simplified or stereotyped terms.
Note: I’m copying the links where you can watch a video in order to answer the questions, and I will submit 2 books as well where are the rest of the information for the questions. Thanks in advance.
