History/culture of makeup

 The extra credit assignment is to analyze a belief, behavior, or group in relation to its place in the spectrum of the sacred. You should choose from any culture and time that interests you. Students in the past have analyzed examples ranging from Greek history to Cargo cults to modern video games.First, I want a brief, approximately half-page synopsis of the society, institution, culture, belief system, and/or behavior on which you are going to focus. Second, provide me with an analysis of the element in question from the viewpoint of one or two of the theorists we have talked about this semester. Be sure to be thorough in your analysis. Do not repeat the professor or the text. To receive an “A” you will have to do considerable thought and some research.
