Lecture Summary:

Here Be Dragons: How Culture Affects Us in More Ways Than We Think

Most people are aware that people in other places are different, but this understanding rarely goes beyond surface differences like the way people greet each other with a handshake, a bow, a kiss, a namaste or a hug. These visible differences are rarely a problem and most intercultural conflicts are actually caused by deeper differences.
Just how deep these differences are has only been uncovered recently by new research in pyschology and neuroscience, revealing that some parts of the world of culture are as unknown as the areas of old maps believed to be labelled Hic Sunt Dracones -- "Here be dragons".
The lecture is available in a shorter 20-minute version for conference settings and extended 30-45 minute versions for other events. Extra time can be added for a Q&A session. The content can also be adapted to suit the audience, venue and other factors; for more information see the Lectures page. A hands-on workshop related culture topics are also available. For details see the Workshops page.
