Cultural Photo Archive

LESCANT Photo Database

The idea behind the LESCANT Photo Database is to give students experience in identifying and analyzing cultural differences that come up whenever they deal with people from other cultures. Student contributors add photos to the database (categorized by the LESCANT model topics) and then they include a brief analysis to describe the cultural features in the photo. In some cases this may be with the person who lives across the street, other times it will be related to those we encounter while traveling abroad. Visitors to the website can view the photos by topic, location, or author.
