Ethics in Cross Cultural Perspective
Our Columbia and Greenville Centers hosted a Dialogue Night on September 3rd titled Ethics in Cross Cultural Perspective: Turkey and the United States" Both locations had great discussions regarding cultural ethics, etiquette and moral behavior. The audience was able to learn about many of the different cultural customs that are abundant in Turkey such as how to address people, shaking hands, crossing legs, respect for elders and even smoking. The Rev. Dr. John L. (Jan) Setzler from Trinity Lutheran Church in Greenville represented a very well thought out American Perspective of America's melting pot culture and Dr Carl D. Evans, Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies, University of South Carolina was the speaker in Columbia that spoke about Ethics on a larger scale and how it relates to Racism and Poverty amongst other things that are prevalent in American society.
