"Do you know America?" – Liubou Uladykouskaja

I am very delighted with my work at the University of Florida. Anthropology is high developed here and I've made a wide professional network. I've gotten a lot of new knowledge in practice and theory on intercultural dialogue.

My presentation "Intercultural Dialogue And Belarus: Crisis Or Chance?" at the University of Florida caused a great and a very active discussion. There were many people who came to look at "the alive Belarusian" for the first time in their life and were surprised with absolutely new information about unknown country. Some of them said that my point of view about America looked like "Official American Propaganda" but I know nothing about official American propaganda! Probably, patriotism needs to be grown and supported by the state. But in any case this "propaganda" is rather directed towards patriotism of American citizens, and not against other countries. I just sincerely love America, I believe in America, and I am sure that this country is not only very free, but the most progressive and moral. I made sure in this thanks to my personal life experience.
