Connotations of Culture and Identity: A Study on the Significance of Cross Cultural Interactions

Dhishna Pannikot
Abstract—Culture and Identity are two complex terms that are most relevant in the present as cross cultural interactions are a recurrent phenomenon. Culture and identity are two concepts that have larger connotations. When the world itself is considered as a global village, the significance of exploring geographical boundaries and maintaining peaceful co-existence is a requirement of the time. At this juncture, understanding the significance of culture and identity needs to be explored. This paper enhances the understanding of culture and identity by examining these terms in detail. The development of the field of studies named cultural studies and its scope is presented in this paper. It further tries to connect these two complex terms in the context of cross cultural interaction.

Index Terms—Culture, cross cultural interaction, identity.
