This course encourages students to identify issues in multi-cultural communication, become aware of personal barriers, and develop skills for working with them. Students will be introduced to (1) critical concepts about the politics of identity and cultural complexes; (2) philosophical discussion of inner stances towards welcoming the other; and (3) practical techniques for listening and shared change. Discussions will emphasize Canadian cultural milieus, and faith-based contexts. Led by Rabbi Dr. Laura Duhan Kaplan. Open by preregistration through the Vancouver School of Theology.
