[Ann Witte]   Author of more than twenty publications, Anne E. Witte combines expertise in a range of the humanities and social sciences to provide interdisciplinary instruction to management students at EDHEC Business School (France) where she has held the position of Professor since 1991. Her research and writing address questions in cross cultural psychology, cultural history, literature, anthropology, international communication, and critical thinking.

Her unconventional book Past and Future Cultures takes the reader on a journey to explore the gradual internationalization of past cultures as they become the societies of the present. Eight thematic chapters investigate cultural and post-cultural manifestations of human diversity, offering to non-specialists an introduction to values, authority, transnational communication, social capital, and global civic concerns. Each chapter concludes with a focus on one contemporary civilization, or cultural sphere (Indian, Chinese, Central Asian/Arab-Islamic, Russian, Western Capitalist, South American, African, Japanese).
