Title of your Program: Check Your US-Centric First World Privilege
What you look forward to most for ACPA 17: Networking
This session will explore US-centric and first world privilege in US higher education and culture. Data, each presenters’ work and educational experiences outside the US, and the experiences and insights of participants will be used to highlight US-centric first world privilege. The session will cover global demographic data, as well as fundamental cultural, religious, architectural, and educational differences among nations. Gender roles, religion, authority, personal relationships and the underlying metaphors of college will feature as the centerpiece as contrast with US cultures.
