Historical or Cultural Museum Visit
Visit a museum that focuses on cultural history, preferably the history of a certain cultural group, and spend at least an hour observing the exhibits and listening to the guide (if one is available). Observe aspects of culture as they are presented in the museum and also notice evidence of conflict in their history.
Write an essay of 500-750 words about the experience. Where did you go? Who went with you? How long did you stay? What did you learn about the people and how conflicts have shaped their history?
What were the positive outcomes of the conflict? What lingering scars do people carry with them from the experience?
Reflect on how much this experience stretched your comfort zone and how this observation could affect your intercultural communication.
