Author(s):Lee, Myeong; Butler, Brian S.
Subject(s):high and low context
urban perception

new places
Abstract:This study focuses on modeling people's perception of places and how those perceptions are affected by cultural differences. Cultural background influences the way people feel and think about many objects. How people recall and remember information also varies when their cultural backgrounds differ. However, it is unclear how cultural background influences individual's perceptions and information behaviors regarding a geographic area, such as a town or neighborhood. One way that individual's cultural background may vary is with regard to its degree how the culture they are most associated deals with routine communication. Hall's high/low-context model (1976) that cultures differ significantly with respect to how the messages involved in everyday communication are structured and interpreted, so this will be used to represent cultural background. Also, the ways people perceive urban area are categorized into landmarks and physical addresses. For this study, we will conduct an online survey and have subjects play a short online quiz game.
