Kathleen Visconti, our Head of School, invites you to join her via zoom for some conversation and discussion around current topics of interest. Our next session will be about third culture kids.
As advances in technology and transportation make global connection easier, more cultures are intersecting than ever before. And when culture changes, language tends to follow. One related term being seen with increasing frequency is third-culture kid, i.e. a child who grows up in a culture different from the one in which his or her parents grew up.
The “third culture” to which the term refers is the mixed identity that a child assumes, influenced both by their parents’ culture and the culture in which they are raised.
