No two cultures differ quite as much as American and Japanese culture. But why do Americans have such a difficult time adapting to Japanese culture? This presentation, based on a brilliant but not widely known book, attempts to explain the root of the issue.
My Powerpoint notes are missing - I thought they would be there when I uploaded the file. I'm going to have to figure out where I went wrong...sorry if some things don't make perfect sense without the notes.
This is my first draft and incomplete work. There are other "polite fictions" that I want to illustrate but I wanted to get what I had out there to get feedback from my peers. Finding the right images to use has been tedious - we need more Creative Commons users on Flickr! Thanks to the great photographers I did find on Flickr who are willing to share their photos with others. I can't say how much I appreciate you folks!
Please give me some creative feedback and I hope you enjoy my slideshow.
