Keep Your Suitcases Ready: A Theoretical Explanation to the Study of Misperception, Self-censorship, and Insecurity in Teaching “Western” International Studies to Female Arab Muslim Students in the Gulf

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The aim of this paper is to design a theoretical model to understand how and why Western or Western-educated faculty filter their own cultural values and beliefs in order to comply with institutional constraints, and to assess what effects this behavior has on the representation of the discipline of IS and on the Weltanschauung of the students. Based on findings derived from parallel surveys of faculty and students at Zayed University (United Arab Emirates), it will be argued that structural variables play a minor role in explaining “value silencing” and self-censorship compared to cognitive and ideational factors, and that both students and faculty misperceive each other’s cultural and political attitudes because of deeply ingrained prejudices and miscommunication.
