First Days of Comm 350

Jean Carlos Prada is our local contact in Panama

We met for two days in Louisville before leaving on May 6 for Panama.  We had an overview of what and how we are going to study once we get to Panama.  We are not studying Panamanian culture per se; rather, we are taking a deliberate approach to studying culture in general, using Panaman as an example.  I hope that I made it clear that we are focusing on “microcultures” rather than national cultures.  That way the students can focus in on a smaller group and try to describe that group’s culture.  We shall see.  Derby this weekend and them off to Panama!
