What is Culture Shock?

Welcome to BU Culture Shock!

Culture Shock (founded in the spring of 2010) is a blog project of the Howard Thurman Center at Boston University. In the spirit of the Howard Thurman Center‘s mission of cultivating common ground, Culture Shock covers a wide range of topics from a multitude of perspectives.

Our posts written by BU undergraduate students aim to start discussions, open minds, and build community. We feature weekly columns about Boston, sex and gender, and Howard Thurman‘s philosophy of common ground. Our authors also cover topics like ecology, politics, music, film, literature, travel, Harry Potter, and more.
