Quick Question

Compare the obligations and responsibilities of cultural visitors and immigrants using the information in “The Essential Guide to Intercultural Communication,” pp. 41-­–44, “Strategies for Developing and Practicing Cross-Cultural Expertise in the Military,” and “The changing faces of America.”

 

What responsibility does a visitor from another culture have to a host culture’s way of living? Of thinking? Of communicating? Should people from another culture accept or engage in behaviors they find morally wrong? Do immigrants have different responsibilities from visitors? Does it make a difference if the visitors arrive by mediated communication, as in the case of multinational corporations with only online contacts?
