Reflect on your own experiences that inform your ideas about culture. You may find that some of your experiences involve your own experiences of being a “cultural Other” when you travelled to a different country in the past. You may find that some of your experiences have to do with your hyphenated cultural identity (i.e. Japanese-American) in the United States or outside of the country.
Describe those experiences and how they contribute to your thinking about culture.
Explain to me how those experiences work together to shape your thinking about culture.
Explain to me how you see the connections between the anthropological concepts of culture that you have read about in Perspectives and your own experiences and thinking.
