Please read “Learning from Ladakh”
The materials for this week emphasize the intersections between cultures that have become increasingly apparent in our global society. Choose “Learning from Ladakh” , one of the week’s required reading assignments to discuss in relation to cross-cultural interactions. After reading ,explain (a) where you see the coming together of cultures evident, (b) how that intersection is represented, and (c) what the results of this interaction are. For example, does the work represent the connections between cultures as bringing conflict, harmony, confusion, excitement, possibility, or something else? Does the meeting of cultures raise issues about tradition or about personal or cultural identity? If conflict arises in the work you have chosen, how does that tension arise, and to what extent is that tension resolved or unresolved? Does the interaction among cultures change or affect them in any ways? If so, how? If not, why not? Remember to address not only plot and factual events, but also how ideas and events are presented, including the choice and use of language, and the multiple layers of meaning suggested through that language (or other means of representation, such as visuality).
Your initial post should be at least 450 words in length. Note that this discussion is lengthier than those in earlier weeks. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
