The Expat Experience

at The Commonwealth Club (06:00 PM)
Denise Schickel, Sociology Researcher
What happens when you go abroad to live and work in another culture, surrounded by the strange sounds of a different language, different food, music and customs? What does it take to achieve a successful expatriate experience? Come and learn about the diverse experiences of 14 Americans who worked and lived in various countries—from England to Vietnam, Belarus to India. Learn about their challenges and how they finally adjusted and thrived in their foreign environments. Schickel presents the results of her recent qualitative research, conducted years after she herself experienced the expat life during her two years in the U.S. Peace Corps in Morocco, which inspired her continuing interest in these issues and led to her recently successfully defended dissertation.
Location: 110 The Embarcadero, Max Thelen Boardroom, San Francisco Time: 5:30 p.m check-in, 6 p.m. program MLF: Humanities Program Organizer: George Hammond
