The Iran Youth Is Getting Older
24 July, 2011
The collapse of the Pahlavi dynasty in the late 1970s gave birth to an infant named the ‘Islamic Republic Of Iran’, with the purpose of transforming the history of the monarchy of Iran into an everlasting Islamic conclusion.
The early Iranians began training their children as infants, so the new born baby was being raised, but with the purpose of having no trace of ‘its’ late Zoroastrian ancestors. The baby was being given enough commands to digest the guidelines of a true Islam that was[......]
Young Chinese Friends and Intercultural/crossgenerational friendships: Michael H. Prosser, Ph.D.
In September, 2011, I will have had almost 10 years of China experiences, so many that some of my young Chinese friends call me “ChiAmerican.” I came to China just about three weeks before the 9/11 attacks on the twin towers of the New York Trade Center and the US Pentagon. Then in Yangzhou, we had very little English tv news coverage, and my son Leo called me in the middle of the night (China time) to tell me about it. I had not been watching tv the evening that it happened in China time, an[......]

In 2001-2002, when I was teaching at Yangzhou University, every other Saturday I was a volunteer English teacher at a new foreign language school near Yangzhou for an hour for 200 primary school children, then another hour for 200 junior middle school children. After a nice lunch, I taught 3 different 20 minute classes of English for kindergarten children. About 15 of my own university students went with me and learned some skills about teaching English to such large groups of children. We had two little stuff[......]

Iran – America Positive Intercultural communication
Mansoureh Sharifzadeh, Tehran, Iran:July 12, 2011: Guest Contributor
When Professor D. Ray Heisey, my lifelong mentor and I started a new research project “The Visual and Artistic Rhetoric of Americans and Iranians of Each Other Impacted by Media” [Proceedings of Phi Beta Delta, Volume 2, No. 1 May 2011], I didn’t expect such a painful consequence.
To find out how the youth of both nations conceive each other, we invited them to draw a picture of people who were considered foreigners to them. In this process American[......]
