Yamagata JALT:

Cultural Sterotypes of Japanese and Americans: Could they be true? Part 2

Date: Saturday, September 2nd, 2006 Time: 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Speaker: Jerry Miller

"Americans are so ..." "Japanese people always ..." Have you ever uttered these phrases? In a world full of a vast array of cultures and customs, we sometimes resort to stereotyping to help make sense of different ways of thinking. And although negative stereotypes may be harmful, what about positive stereotypes? "Japanese people are polite." "Americans are friendly." The speaker will explore some of the more common stereotypes held by Japanese anad Americans regarding the other' culture. Topics will include daily rituals, social issues and cultural expectations. Jerry Miller is a lecturer at Yamagata University.
