Abstract:

A modified Solomon design was used to test the intercultural attitudes of 62 Americans living in Greece, after they were exposed to an ethnographic essay about Greek culture. A variety of measures was employed in both the pretests and the post-tests. The data suggested that much learning did occur, but there was no evidence of improvement in intercultural attitudes. It appears that interculture perception becomes more accurate, but intercultural affect is unchanged.
