Culture Shock Story


In order to investigate diverse forms of portraying intercultural awareness and identity creation within new media, I developed a website called “Culture Shock Story” ( The website is about intercultural experiences of students from UMBC (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) who are international students or who have been studying abroad. The main topics of the research are intercultural competency and creativity enhancement, and the second is the use of mediation/mediatization in up-and-coming new media formats. The underlying focus of the multimedia project is to examine the personal accounts of culture shock experiences through media.

This project is the base for my final project for the MA in Intercultural Communication following the Filmmaking track. The following article was presented in I Congreso de Relatos Digitales de la Universidad de Valencia in 2012.
