I want to understand the world from your point of view. I want to know what you know in the way you know it. I want to understand the meaning of your experience, to walk in your shoes, to feel things as you feel them, to explain things as you explain them. Will you become my teacher and help me understand?
James P. Spradely, The Ethnographic Interview
In completing your Immersion Experience, you observed an event or gathering of a particular group, completed a dialogue, and crafted an analysis and presentation of your insights and findings. This week, it is time to step back and reflect on the process itself and how it may help you understand other cultures in general in the future.
Post a brief description of the culture or population group in which you immersed yourself. Next, explain how the Immersion Experience assisted you in understanding and respecting other cultures in general.
