Dr. James Narsis, Director of the Office of International Relations at West Virginia State College, addressed Dr. Anthony Woart's "Cultural Anthropology" class at Bluefield State College recently.
Reflecting upon his years spent in the African nation of Chad as a Peace Corps volunteer, Dr. Narsis considered the triple heritage (traditional, Arabo- Islamic, and European) of the populace. He told students and staff in the class, "In Chad, everyone is a part of the educational process. The Chadeans are less individualistic than are citizens of many other nations, and they are more a part of the education, language, government, and lives of each other."
"There are three primarily languages in Chad, and it's not uncommon to find that each of the languages will be used in specific business, social, and cultural settings," he continued. Narsis' presentation came in conjunction with the class focus upon culture and diversity.
