Talk #6: Open Dialogue: Time Across Cultures

Time: Apr 28, 2020 04:00 PM Copenhagen

– various experiences connected to time in various cultural contexts
– studies by Robert Levine on pace of life
– time perspective profiles across different cultures, and
– about whether culture is a guide for behavior which in turn affects attitudes about time, OR, if attitudes about time drive behavior and this affects culture?
