In her research paper, Rebecca explores how cultural differences, although they initially appear to separate us, can actually be the starting points for building bridges. How might an author’s presuppositions unfairly influence his or her conclusions when dealing with a foreign culture? How might one’s own biases be identified, negotiated, and diminished? Why is this important? Is it possible for an outsider to a cultural group to speak about that group with authority? How might a writer/researcher create ethos to help establish authority?
