Deep culture

Over at “Communicating Across Boundaries” guest writer Jody Fernando posted “More Than a Tourist: Living Deeply Across Cultures.” Fernando’s post introduces us to the ideas of Joseph Shaules about getting more deep into cultures. I particularly enjoyed reading about “Engagement” and “Language Learning.” More of Shaules’ work can be found here, including a generous sample of his new book. It all reminds me of Melibee’s “How to Meet People Abroad” series posts. In the series we have made a determined effort to advise visitors to new cities about ways to enact such engagement with the local communities and get deeper into the culture(s). We’ve discussed Seattle, Paris, Lebanon, Dublin, Rabat, London, and more.
