Movie Clip

You just viewed a scene from the film “Mosquito Coast” starring Harrison Ford. Harrison Ford’s character has moved his family from a small mid-western town in the United States to a fictional country in Africa. Ford and his family give up the comforts of the American lifestyle and build an agricultural community with indigenous people. Every so often, Ford makes a trip to the city for supplies. He has just brought fabric back for his wife.

In this scene, one of the indigenous persons sees her making clothes for the children and simply says, “I sure do like this color”.

It was graduation day, and the school auditorium was filled with mothers in kimonos dabbing away tears, their husbands snoozing beside them. Keiko Yoshida was on stage accepting a pile of high school diplomas from the principal on behalf of herself and the 41 other girls of Koto Girls High School’s 3-1 class, who stood watching from the floor.

Keiko carefully descended the stage stairs, put the diplomas on a table, and found her seat. All 42 students then sat in unison. They had just graduated.
As I watched one representative from each of the four graduating classes go up to the stage and accept her classmates’ diplomas, I grew increasingly disillusioned at the lack of individual recognition. In some respects, Japan and America are like jungle and ocean; there are different rules of existence in each environment.

“Many Westerners see Japanese group dependency as weak and conformist,” said my friend and fellow English teacher. Mr. Shibuya, when I took up the issue with him later. “And many Japanese see Western individualism as weak and egotistical.”

He was right. I had been taught that independence equals strength and that dependency equals weakness. Shibuya had learned that individuality equals weakness and strength is found in modesty&

Keiko had not even wanted to be on that stage. She was elected to accept the diplomas by a class vote.

When I asked one of Keiko’s classmates why she and her classmates were so unwilling to serve as class representative, she said that 3-1 was the strongest class at school and that she was happy graduating as part of it, without the onus of being the one seen on stage.

When I told Shibuya that at my high school graduation, each student accepted a diploma individually, he smiled and said, “Maybe many parents will sleep. Why does every student need to stick out?”

Rwanda Essay

  • Give an example of a social role from the essay.
  • Summarize what a social role is.
  • Why is this a social role?



Korean interpersonal relationships operate on the principle of harmony. Maintaining a peaceful, comfortable atmosphere is more important that attaining immediate goals or telling the absolute truth. Koreans believe that to accomplish something while causing unhappiness or discomfort to individuals, is to accomplish nothing at all. If relationships are not kept harmonious, it is difficult, if not impossible to work toward any goal. All cultures value how its members feel emotionally, but few cultures value as much as Koreans do. To Koreans, to put greater emphasis on efficiency, honesty, or some other form of moral integrity is to be cold and unfeeling.

  • Relate this to what the text says about Handling Differences in Intercultural Relationships.
  • Summarize what the text says about Handling Differences in Intercultural relationships.



In China, once you began to “see” a person, you were locked in, to the exclusion of all others of the opposite sex. There were no degrees of involvement. Everyone knew that you were a couple, and that was a clear signal to all others. As a woman tied to a man in Shanghai, I was safe from the advances of others. Most women married the first person they dated, just as my mother had done, and as all my siblings eventually would. A female considered paired would be viewed as a loose woman if she developed friendships with other men. Even those who broke up with their boyfriends were looked down upon by friends and family if they dated again right away. It was a holdover from feudal society, when a woman whose husband died was expected to remain single all her life, regardless her age.

A friendly American is not necessarily an American friend. Though an American may be willing to have long, intimate conversations with a stranger, that doesn’t mean a dinner invitation is forthcoming.


Remember asking a twenty-year-old student in economics at Delhi University& if she loved the childhood friend her parents had decide she should marry. “That’s a very difficult question,” she answered. “I don’t know. This whole concept of love is very alien to us. We’re more practical. I don’t see stars, I don’t hear little bells. But he’s a very nice guy, and I think I’m going to enjoy spending my life with him. Is that love?” she shrugged.
