This course focuses on inter-cultural issues in the context of service and hospitality. This course takes a critical perspective; students should expect to learn how to consider culture and cultural encounters from various theoretical perspectives rather than practical skills and knowledge as to how to conduct inter-cultural communication. This course consists of two parts. First, students will have taken a MOOC (massively open online course) called Culture of Services and meet in class to discuss the material. Second, we will have Professor Daniel Hjorth to cover more advanced topics on cultural and inter-cultural issues.
Note that there are multiple times listed in Syllabus: Wednesdays 2nd, 3rd, and 4th segments. The class is usually held in the 2nd (10:30-12:00) and Professor Hjorth will teach in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th segments on June 6 and 13.
Note also that because students are required to take MOOC in advance and the MOOC takes up to 32 hours in total, we need to free five sessions, adding all hours to 90.
All the materials will be uploaded to PandA. https://panda.ecs.kyoto-u.ac.jp/portal
