X943: The Experience of Third-Culture Kids in Splash Spring 14 (Mar. 29, 2014)
America has always been a nation of immigrants, but not until the 1950's did our society label, and thus begin to pay attention to, their children. Third-culture kids (3CK) grow up caught between many cultures, unable to fully claim one sense of identity. In this session, we will examine the common characteristics 3CK share, the difficulties they face attaining a sense of belonging, and the unique skills they bring to our rapidly globalizing world.
