Culture Corner

The Writing and Language Studio hosts the weekly Culture Corner as a way of celebrating the cultural diversity at Duke Kunshan University. The Culture Corner is an informal space where all Duke Kunshan students, staff, and faculty are invited to mindfully discuss personal and/or cultural views on selected topics every week. With these conversations, we aim to facilitate communication and promote mutual understanding among people from different cultural backgrounds at Duke Kunshan.

Past topics:

November 8, 2018: Proxemics (personal space, physical contact, etc.)

Upcoming topics can be found on Duke Kunshan Engage.

Time: Every Thursdays, 18:15–19:15
