The present course intends to make the students familiar with differences and similarities of pluralism and individualism taking into account the values provided by anthropological culture, high culture, or popular culture. The lectures and discussions will identify the ways that people behave in terms of individualism and collectivism in multilingual and multicultural societies, the activities of the art, literature, music, theater created by culture versus the contemporary trends of popular culture.
