In such an international world, cultures are colliding and ideas changing. During the internationalization, more and more children grow up in foreign countries, swinging between two distinct value systems and walking along the boundary of two cultures. They are called third culture kids (TCK) or trans-culture kids. The coming Living Library Lecture invites Professor Shao Meiyi to unveil the inner world of the third culture kids. A unique perspective will be provided to interpret these kids' growth and success, and to observe cultural differences as well.
