Last class: 1. We often place the topic of History on a pedestal (hence why I capitalized it) in our culture. But as the reading discusses, history is a created, manipulated ‘thing.’ Which moment in history, before your birth, would you like to know more about? Which narratives are missing from that moment in history? Why might someone want to suppress those narratives?

2.Why do you think that the term ‘worldview’ is important to our study of intercultural communication? Do we need this concept? Does it help advance or clarify our understanding of cultures? How does this concept affect the way we communicate with others? Is there another word/concept/idea that you think would be better than ‘worldview’?

3. Narrate your experience of watching the “Christian/Atheist” episode of 30 Days. Do you think all of the participants in the episode were communicating interculturally? Why or why not? Compare your perception of Brenda to the stereotypes of atheists that the episode presents. How does Brenda reinforce or go against those stereotypes?

4.Choose one of the belief systems presented in the reading that you do not personally follow and consider their stance/belief about death. Which is most appealing to you? Which differs the most from your current belief system? How does your current belief system ‘work with’ or ‘work against’ the belief system you choose to examine in this prompt?
