Undringsvandringer i Berlin

Når man har brukt de siste 20 årene til å studere, undervise og fundere på kulturelle forskjeller og særegenheter, og på hvordan interkulturell kommunikasjon fungerer og ikke fungerer, er det spennende å observere og reflektere over slike forskjeller når man plutselig har flyttet seg over i et annet land. Selv om man er bevisst på forskjellene, går man likevel ofte i fellen og misforstår eller oppfører seg galt. Særlig i begynnelsen, etterhvert lærer man seg å trå forsiktig der det er nødvendig. Etter en tid blir mangt og mye nesten “normalt”, altså som man var vant til – men aldri helt.

Etter så mange år i Norge er det vel umulig å tenke seg at jeg skulle bli helt tysk. Likevel blir jeg stadig mer hjemme i den nye kulturen og gjør færre feil. I motsetning til de “innfødte” observerer jeg det som sies og gjøres med et utenfrablikk. Disse observasjonene synes jeg er spennende. Jeg tenker å skrive om slike observasjoner her i bloggen.

Ikke slik å forstå at jeg misliker den nye kulturen – tvert i mot er det mye jeg synes nordmenn kan lære av den. Men det er også mye som forekommer meg underlig, overdrevet, unødvendig, kanskje noe regelryttersk. Til de kollegene som, akkurat som jeg, studerte og underviste for eksempel Hofstedes teorier vil jeg si: Det stemmer alt sammen! Langt bedre enn vi trodde, og fortsatt. Det er nok slik at kulturer ikke endrer seg nevneverdig, selv om levemåten kan endre seg til dels radikalt. Nå lever jo de fleste urbane europeere på mye samme måte som vi gjør her i Berlin. Likevel er det kulturelle særegenheter, og disse observerer jeg og kommer til å skrive om, litt her og der i denne bloggen. 

Jeg har kalt fortellingene mine undringsvandringer. Jeg observerer og undrer mest, av og til vil jeg også forsøke meg på en forklaring. Hermed inviterer jeg leseren med på vandringen og undringen. Vi kan jo begynne her i min gate.

Min gate om høsten
