Eastern European/Central Asian Cultures

Lecture no. 17 from the course: Customs of the World: Using Cultural Intelligence to Adapt, Wherever You Are

Eastern European/Central Asian Cultures

Taught by Professor David Livermore | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Travel Courses

Characterized by a tough tenacity forged through centuries of harsh weather, constant movement, and the dominance of other clans and empires, this diverse cluster includes countries such as Russia, Slovenia, Poland, Greece, Kazakhstan, and Albania. Take a closer look at what connects these cultures and the reasons why—despite their having a reputation for hospitality—customer service seems to have limited priority.

I think this is my favorite course. I’ve referred back to it numerous times.

In this specific chapter, it is not possible to clustered together all this countries under one group, even if there are some similarities, huge differences exist between cultures. For example the nomadic experience does not fit the Hellenistic cultural understanding.

If you seem to be so knowledgable about cultures, you should know that grouping all those diiferent countries into one region is complete stupidity. As you said there are diverese countries with completely different cultures, so you cannot possibly put together Slavs and Turks, Greeks and Hungarians... And as you know so much about cultures, you should know that Czechs, Slovaks, Hungarians and Polish for examples HATE to be called Eastern Europeans. You might get punched in the face for that here. We are Central Europeans. Remember that.
