 (*1) Apologies Across Cultures
   With the rapid advance of globalization, productive intercultural communication between various nations, groups, and individuals has become increasingly important. During this workshop, we will look from a variety of perspectives at examples of misunderstandings that can arise from intercultural communication. Participants will deepen their engagement with the examples raised by making presentations and discussing possible causes of intercultural friction. The topic of this workshop will be “Apology” in different cultures. The focus of the workshop will be on encouraging participants to acquire intercultural intellectual flexibility by thinking independently, brainstorming and trying out solutions, and considering a variety of perspectives. (Ikuko OKUGAWA, Project Assistant Professor, International Center)

 (*2) Cultural and Personal Values
   Each of us has a different way of thinking and feeling, which has been formed through years. Some of our values change, some remain the same for a long period. What made you change your values in the past? What are your current values like? Are they all coming from your personal choice? This session provides you an opportunity to analyze your own values from a sociocultural perspective. By examining what cultures have surrounded you, what you have experienced so far, and how these might have affected your values, we will discuss what kind of Japaneseness we have had and get to know more about ourselves. (Rie SUZUKI, Project Assistant Professor, International Center)
