Check this A+ tutorial guideline at
Choose one of the "Consider This" boxes that Nowak and Laird present us with in
Chapters 1 and 2 of Cultural Anthropology, or discuss the topics below from the film
Margaret Mead: Coming of Age, available in the Films On Demand database, in the
Ashford Online Library.
The topics covered are:
a. Whether the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights should be applicable to
b. Whether it is possible to truly view a culture without being influenced by the
cultural constructs of our own culture.
c. How our understanding of what it means to be a patient in the United States
reflects our different cultural backgrounds and affiliations.
d. In the film Margaret Mead: Coming of Age, it is mentioned that Mead’s initial
research was criticized on methodological grounds. Why was that? Do you consider
the criticism warranted or not warranted? What could she have done differently?
e. Based on the film and the book, discuss the challenges of field work. What do you
think would be the most difficult? What has changed since the time of Mead?
Clearly identify the topic you choose at the outset of your discussion, and answer all
aspects of it thoroughly. Your answer should contain a balance of descriptive detail
and cultural analysis. Build on the ideas and terminology in the text and your own
ideas to support your answers. Include examples or information from the film in any
question answer as you see fit. Your initial response should be at least 150 words in
length. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings by Day 7.
