What Does It Mean to be 'Immersed' in Culture?

In this episode of Intercultural Corner, host Dave McAvoy explores what it means to be immersed in a culture. Whether it is feeling lost in Dublin or a moment of unspoken peace in Madrid, the common thread is how comfortable—or not—we are made to feel when we are trying to learn about a new place. Guests include Karla Guinigundo, Director of Global Partnerships, and Mark Walsh Professor of Kinesiology Nutrition and Health who will discuss what makes his immersive programs in Nepal and Iceland so effective.
