Select a culture to research throughout the semester. This first paper will analyze what you find out about the culture 1) from depictions of the cultural group in U.S. media and 2) from academic journals or scholarly references explaining the communication/values of the cultural group. Write 1,000-1,250 words in response to the following: 1. Compare and contrast the concepts of stereotyping and ethnocentrism. 2. Find two concrete examples that show how the cultural group you are studying is stereotypically represented by local and/or national media in the U.S. (This could include Comic Strips, Newspaper Articles, Advertisements, TV Shows, etc.). 3. Compare and contrast these media stereotypes with research about the culture communication value orientations (pick two value dimensions from the list provided below, describe the value dimension, explain what research findings say about your culture in relation to these values, and give illustrations of how this is expressed in their communication). 1. High vs. low-context 2. High vs. low power-distance 3. Individualism vs. collectivism 4. High vs. low uncertainty avoidance 5. Polychronic vs. monochronic 6. Femininity vs. masculinity 7. Long-term vs. short-term 8. Indulgence vs. restraint 4. Using academic sources, explain how mass-mediated stereotypes may affect communication between you and a member of this cultural group.

The Dutch Culture
Student’s Name:
University Affiliation:




The Dutch Culture
People belong to different cultures depending on their growing background. Culture is
defined as the unique customs, social norms and practices of a particular group of people. Hence
people beliefs and principles differ depending on the type of culture they uphold. However, in
some instances when a person does not understand a certain culture, people tend to stereotype
and even disregard a culture as they label it inappropriate. The Dutch culture is unique as it
advocates for consensus hence the feelings of each society member are upheld during the
decision making process. The latter is contrary to the American culture which majorly advocates
for individualism. Due to the differences that exist in the two cultures, the Dutch culture has
experienced a lot of criticism from the Americans, but despite all that, the culture is still thriving.
The Dutch culture advocates for societal values that most nations have disregarded, hence
putting it in the middle of many controversial conversations.
Stereotyping is whereby people believe that a particular belief or custom about culture
mainly because most people believe in it. Stereotype people do not care whether the information
they have is right or wrong as long as a multitude believes in it. Ethnocentrism is whereby a
person analyzes other people's culture depending on their personal beliefs and customs.
Ethnocentric people believe that their beliefs and practices are superior to all the other people
