Welcome to the World! What makes other cultures the same as ours? What makes them different? Why do people around the world do what they do? With the new realities of global interconnectedness comes a greater awareness of cultural diversity from place to place. Besides differences in food and fashion, we face significant contrasts of cultural orientation and patterns of thinking. This World Cultures section of the library will give students the opportunity to explore life in Brazil, Egypt, Kenya, Italy, Germany, China, Spain Sri Lanka and many other countries. Students will see how diverse cultures from all over the globe live life in different and fascinating ways—and with this cultural awareness, students will have a better understanding of the world we live in.
