We are very excited today for our first connection with the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Today Stanford’s Sophomore College Psych 12C class (The Cultural Shaping of Emotion) is connecting with students from Chinese University for a discussion of how emotion operates in advertising.
Participants, we hope you all enjoyed meeting each other during our workshop today!
Please respond to the following questions about today’s exchange:
- What have you learned so far about the relationship between culture and emotion?
- What kinds of preconceived notions or expectations did you have about Hong Kong Chinese or American culture going into the exchange today? Were those expectations confirmed or contradicted?
- What preconceived notions or expectations do you think the students in the other culture probably had about you or your own culture before the exchange? Discuss common misconceptions about your culture.
- Feel free to bring up any other questions or comments that came up during the exchange.
Please sign your name, school, and team name (e.g., “Team A”) at the end of your post.
