Cross Cultural Conundrums Presentation by Joe Lurie
UC Berkeley International House Executive Director Emeritus, Award-Winning Author, Cross-Cultural Communications Trainer

In Perception and Deception: A Mind-Opening Journey
Across Cultures, Lurie explores surprising
misunderstandings between individuals from diverse backgrounds, based on his years in the Peace Corps and at I-House.

“Our age of globalization often produces polarization,
so the theme is particularly relevant,” Lurie says.
“Instantaneous communication increasingly is thrusting cultures together. Without preparation and context, many cross-cultural misunderstandings have
confusing consequences.”

$5 donations to AAUW gratefully accepted, supporting gender equity for women and girls through research, education and advocacy.
