Title Delineating Cultural Models: Extending the Cultural Mixture Model.
Publication Date Dec 2011
Media Count 35p
Personal Author A. Boettcher M. Young S. Mueller
Abstract This report describes research and recommendations for describing cultural knowledge. We discuss some of the approaches that have been used in the past, which have considered culture as a factor-analytic problem, as a cognitive style and as a set of shared knowledge. We develop a set of recommendations for extending Cultural Mixture Modeling (CMM) to move beyond the shared knowledge perspective and enable integration of the factor-analytic perspective as well. We provide a number of examples and recommendations regarding how structural models provide the appropriate representation for extending CMM and discuss issues related to statistical representation and inference that will need to be addressed on this path.
