This week, you studied academic culture through an anthropological lens. You explored the variety of cultures that make up a single institution, and you learned about the value added by their interaction. You also read in depth about at least one culture of your choosing.
Bergquist talks about managing polarities (or conflicts) between cultures. He claims that each culture has an interdependent culture, one with opposing values and perspectives (as portrayed in the multimedia piece). Think about the two interdependent cultures that you chose to read about.
