Reconceptualising our cultural maps: Teaching for Cross-Cultural Understanding through the Studies of Asia

Henderson, Deborah J. (2004) Reconceptualising our cultural maps: Teaching for Cross-Cultural Understanding through the Studies of Asia. The Social Educator, 22(2), pp. 5-11.

Abstract

This paper explores some of the assumptions and arguments about teaching for cross-cultural understanding through the Studies of Asia. First, it examines what cross-cultural understanding might mean and why it is significant. Second, it reviews some of the past discussion and debate about how it can be achieved. Third, it argues that global and regional realities indicate that Australian students require cross-cultural understanding through the Studies of Asia if they are to be effective citizens in the region.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
