We all are cultural beings and culture has huge impact on our personality, the way we think, behave, live etc. The American anthropologist Edward T. Hall wrote in his book “The silent language”:
Culture hides more than it reveals and strangely enough what it hides, it hides most effectively from its own participants. Years of study have convinced me that the real job is not to understand foreign culture but to understand our own. (E.T. Hall 1959).
Because culture “works” often intuitive and subconscious, we need to dig deep, to be able to better understand how culture is shaping who we are. On the other side, it is equally important to know the “forces” behind cultural shaping of Self. In the webinar, I would like to give you some insights into the topic of culture from two different perspectives: how culture is shaping individuals and how culture is being constructed?
