Emotions in East Asian Social Life: Theory and Practice
Summer School 3-8 September 2007,
The Isle of Procida, Naples, Italy
The University “Orientale” of Naples, Italy, is pleased to announce its forthcoming summer school Emotions in East Asian Social Life: Theory and Practice. For the first time in Europe a summer school will offer the excellent opportunity for students and professionals to gain expertise in all aspects of East Asian emotion management. The courses, given by an international team of experts, will be invaluable not only for students of East Asian studies, but for anyone interested in improving their intercultural communication skills.
Due to increasing economic and social links between Europe and the East the cross-cultural understanding of emotions is becoming a highly-valued and sought-after skill. Understanding emotions is as important as language in the success of cross-cultural communication. For this reason the University “L’Orientale” of Naples – an institution with a strong background in East Asian emotion research – has developed a topic-related summer school, the first of its kind in Europe.
