Culture As a Catalyst in L.

Front Cover
VDM Publishing, May 1, 2009 - Education - 176 pages
I examine the notion of culture as a psychedelic phenomenon in language learning. My approach to the term psychedelia is different from the 1960s' interpretation: it is the culture that reveals (dlo) its creator's psyche (psuch) and beguiles (deleaz) its receiver's psyche. Loving passionately the English language-culture since my childhood, I cherished a dream of becoming an English-speaking- writing-thinking person one day. First, my dream was triggered by my love of English language rock music, then by literature of the language and then by its entire culture. Through my literary works, I explore such concepts as Life, Learning, Love, Language, and Ledzeppelin where the latter is a cultural stratum on which my inner world is developed. The canvas of my writing is presented in a symbolic form of literary and musical Islands with which I create my arts-based research of new learning-teaching interactions with the learning component as dominating. I look for new perspectives on education as a lifelong process that takes place between I-world and They-world through internalization and externalization.
