WORLD CULTURE CLUB OF CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA PRESENTS:
"The Mythological and Psychological
Roots of Culture" WEDNESDAY, MAY 6, 2015, AT 7:00 PM
Speaker: Mr. James McConkey
Stepping into another culture can be an Alice-in-Wonderland experience. You’re likely to feel like the only sane person in a lunatic asylum. This logic of illogic seized Jim McConkey in the Peace Corps in India, 1967 – ‘69, and set him on a 40-year quest not only to understand but also to explain the cross-cultural experience. His answer brings mythology and psychology to bear on cultural anthropology. The approach illuminates not only how other people’s mythologies affect their cultures, but how our mythology affects ours.
