2. Cultural Appropriation research

In the last decade, much discussion and debate concerning cultural appropriation has occurred in the United
States. Cultural appropriation has been defined as the act of taking or using things from a culture that is not
your own, especially without showing that you understand or respect this culture. Controversy and debate
about this topic occurs in many areas of our society, from what constitutes appropriate Halloween costumes
and how to wear jewelry and clothing from cultures not one’s own (if at all) to whether or not elements from
one culture can be placed into a different environment, and so on.
