The web is a great source of information, and recent research has shown that more Americans are getting their news online. If you are interested in exploring culture, here (in no particular order) are a few websites you might want to explore:
- The Huffington Post features just about any interest, but its Worldpost Culture section is well worth visiting.
- NPR: Code Switch is National Public Radio’s blog with though-provoking articles on race, ethnicity and culture. The NPR website also has great articles on the arts, education, and world events.
- The Culture-ist describes itself as a “media platform and a movement for social good” with sections on travel, food, and stories about how people around the world are working to create positive changes in their communities.
- Transparent Language – Blogs and Culture from Around the World: If you are learning a new language, this site has a collection of blogs covering a variety of languages from Arabic to Urdu, with vocabulary, common phrases, recipes, customs, and more.
- Multi-Cultural Kid Blogs is a great collection of blogs and information on exploring culture for parents, families, and teachers, with articles on arts, crafts, holidays, food, languages, and cultural traditions from around the world.
