Background

Culturgrams are 4-sided handouts designed as briefings to aid understanding for, and communication with, people of other cultures. They are produced through the David M Kennedy Center for International Studies of the Brigham Young University (280 HRCB, Provo UT 84602, USA). Culturgrams are condensations of the best information available. Individual handouts exist for most countries of the world.

Each Culturgram follows a standard format:

  • -- Map: Indicating the continental location and principal cities
  • -- Customs and courtesies: -- -- Greetings; Visiting; Eating; Public Meetings; Gestures.
  • -- The People: -- -- General Attitudes; Population; Language; Religion.
  • -- Lifestyle: -- -- The Family; Dating and Marriage; Social and Economic levels; Diet; Work Schedules; Recreation; Holidays.
  • -- The Nation: -- -- Land and Climate; History and Government; Economy; Education; Transportation; Health
  • -- For Further Information: -- -- Useful addresses

The set of Culturgrams is available bound together in book form.
