What Does Culture Mean to You?
We've all seen them: those tired, meaninglessly abstract definitions of culture from school textbooks or contrived montages from tourism agencies. What I'm interested in, however, is your subjective experience and understanding of culture, be it your own culture, that of others, or a juxtaposition between the two (or many).
While there technically are "experts" out there in the field, I hold a strong conviction that our interaction with culture as human beings is necessarily personal, subjective, and experiential, not theoretical and abstract.
I'm really not looking for one "right" or "sufficiently universal" answer: as far as I'm concerned, what it means to you is closer to truth than anything published in the literature these days!
