This course focuses on the intersection of diversity – especially in terms of gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religious belief and class – and culture in business and societal contexts. In order to discuss in detail these diverse phenomena based on diversity, the course is organized as block seminar. A written short paper after the course focuses on reflecting the processes in class based on scholarly results.
