Prof. Peter Christopher and Leanne Johnson-will present- Albania  so similar, so different
WPI students will be going to the new Albania Project Center in term B13. In the capital city of Tirana they may find daily living not exactly like being at home, but not unlike what they might experience in other cosmopolitan cities. Rural Albania is another story. Yet even in Tirana, our students are likely to experience at least a form of culture confusion, if not culture shock. Recognizing and dealing with the differences, particularly the subtle ones, in the Albanian way of life will be an important part of our students experience. In this presentation, we examine some of those differences.
