Global climate change threatens university campuses around the world.

This research combines Lugones’ notions of arrogant perception and loving acceptance with Buber's concepts of I-It (treating people like objects) and I-Thou (treating people as valued human beings) to examine what 43 doctoral students reciprocally learned when they embarked on a travel study abroad program to China. The work, which draws on literat...

Rather than focusing on mega narratives la...

Article
Full-text available
This article maps how narrative inquiry—the use of story to study human experience—has been employed as both method and form to capture cross-cultural learning associated with Western doctoral students’ travel study to eastern destinations.
