Culture clash experienced by foreign faculty teaching in the U.S. Any observations to share?
Thinking of some literary versions: David Lodge, and of course Nabokov’s delightful Pnin.
Also, what about those of us domestic Americans who have taught outside the U.S.? How was it different? (For me in Paris: no office space, large lecture halls, much less one-on-one with students, better-prepared freshmen. Lifetime contracts come easily, but only to part-time jobs, so you need three to five of those.)
