Choose one cultural membership that is meaningful to you.
Spend some time researching, observing, and investigating that cultural
membership. Consider the following:
· What qualities or characteristics afford you
membership in your culture?
· What behaviors or practices define your culture?
Where/how do you observe them?
· How does your culture communicate with other
cultures? o Which cultures are in conflict with your
culture? Why?
o Which cultures are “allied” with your culture?
Why?
· Who has more power than your culture? Less
power? Why?
· How is your membership to that culture
expressed? Is it verbal? Non-verbal? Hidden? · How does your expression of membership change in
different circumstances? Are there times when you’ve tried to “hide” your
membership? Why?
Write a 2-3-page narrative in which you explore these
questions. Be sure to provide explicit, direct examples to illustrate your
points. Indicate observations or thoughts that you hadn’t considered before
your investigation. Part Two: Cultural Representation in Media
Choose or find media that represents your culture in some
way. You can choose popular culture media (television, film, music, etc.), news
(articles, reports, broadcasts), or social media (groups, influencers,
youtubers, etc.). Be sure to choose something that explicitly or implicitly
represents your culture. Consider the following: · How is your culture represented in the media
you’ve chosen? · How does the representation of your culture
compare to your experience as a member of that culture? · Who created the medium? Are they a member of
your culture? Is that important? Why or why not? · Who is the audience for the medium you’ve
chosen? How do you know? How might the target audience influence the
representation of your culture? · Does the medium subscribe to stereotypes? Which
ones? · In general, how would you evaluate the medium’s
depiction of your culture? Write a 2-3-page evaluation of the media source you’ve
chosen. Be sure to provide explicit, direct examples to illustrate your points.
