Based on his recently released, expanded edition of the award-winning Perception and Deception: A Mind-Opening Journey Across Cultures, Joe Lurie, Executive Director Emeritus, UC Berkeley International House, will present a spirited and insightful exploration of cross-cultural miscommunications in an increasingly globalized, polarizing world. With YouTube, tweets, refugees and fake news rapidly crossing cultures without context, Lurie shares a timely, intriguing and consequential array of intercultural encounters gone wrong because of cultural misperceptions across the globe, in the worlds of migration, religion, language, commerce and technology. David Lennon, former managing editor of the Financial Times, called Lurie's book “brilliant!” According to Lennon, the book offers: “Terrific and timely insights and tools for understanding culture clashes in a hyper-connecting world.” Book signing at the conclusion of the presentation.
