Abstract

Identifying cultural discrepancies in worldviews is of high priority to Cultural Intelligence (CULINT). This paper presents a CULINT computer-based methodology for increasing cultural awareness. By automatically identifying themes/motifs in textual data and using machine translation, we expose cultural discrepancies in cultural understanding. This novel methodology is empirically tested through the analysis of 30 speeches and illustrated through an in-depth analysis of a case-study.
