Perception and Deception

Author Joe Lurie talks about his new book where he examines cultural disconnects with refugees and other immigrants and studies the nature and implications of culture clash in the news of the day.

Author Joe Lurie will examine cultural disconnects with refugees and other immigrants and study the nature and implications of culture clash in the news of the day: in the worlds of diplomacy, politics, business, religion, healthcare, and technology.

In the process, we’ll come to see and hear that more is meant than meets the eye or the ear. 

Joe Lurie is Executive Director Emeritus of the University of California Berkeley’s International House, whose mission is to foster intercultural respect and understanding for the promotion of a more peaceful world.      

He has been an active teacher and intercultural trainer at UC Berkeley and a consultant on cross-cultural communications.

His work has been featured at the Commonwealth Club and on NPR, PBS and in Harper’s Magazine and The Mercury News.
