Culture Shock

Go To

There are several things that the term "culture shock" might describe.

If you're looking for a trope, there's several it could be:

  • Values Dissonance is when a work shocks the reader due to cultural differences.
  • Deliberate Values Dissonance is related to the above, but is because the work is set in a different cultural context, not because it was made in one.
  • Advertisement:
  • Culture Clash, when foreign cultures conflict with one another.
  • Fish out of Water is the plot structure trope about a character having to deal with culture shock.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water is the same as above, but with time travel.
