Canada’s West Coast Fishery: Indigeneity and Japanese Trans-pacific migration

This project explores the practice of diverse means of cultural introspection as unconventional approaches to intercultural learning. Specifically, it examines the use of stories, cultural autobiographies, and metaphoric expression such as creative journaling, as alternatives to euro-centric intercultural competence development methods. It proposes that Faculty and student who participate in an international experience e.g. field school, virtual exchange or semester abroad would gain from digging deep into their own cultural stories in order to better interact with different cultures, to engage in meaningful learning and develop true respect for other ways of being.
