World Fusion Fest - Opening Ceremony

Event Description

Come celebrate the Opening Ceremony of World Fusion Fest 2014 with ISSS and the Drexel community, as we welcome Cathy Bao Bean,  author of The Chopsticks-Fork Principle, A Memoir and Manual. With delight and good humor Cathy encourages people to realize and understand how we are all at least bi-cultural (by ethnicity, gender, generation, status, wealth, etc.) in a way that shatters stereotypes but explains the generalizations. She does this by making the “familiar” and “foreign” blend into each other and by telling personal stories about ordinary events that raise extraordinary cultural questions – like:

Can you fail or succeed simultaneously in two cultures?

What difference does it make to your brain whether English or Chinese was your first language?

How do your several Selves morph from Asian Traditionalist into Western Modernist and back again? 

How do people reach a decision – by consensus? voting?

Refreshments will be served.
Please RSVP to this event here
