Description: New research in cognitive neuroscience is revolutionizing our understanding of culture and mind. This creates challenges and opportunities for intercultural trainers and educators as paradigms are shifting. This talk will introduce new insights in culture and cognition that can inform intercultural training and education. It will look at questions such as:

  • What is the relation between culture and cognition?
  • How is this perspective different from other perspectives?
  • What are the latest developments in this field?
  • What does all of this mean for our work as interculturalists?

We will re-examine basic concepts from this new perspective, including: definitions of culture, identity, and cultural difference. We will learn about new approaches to intercultural research and see it can inform intercultural training and education. This talk will be a mixture of theory and practice, with opportunities to discuss these changing paradigms.
