After reading the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights, explain whether you think that cultural relativism can
coexist with the idea of universal human rights. Is it possible for anthropologists to promote human rights
without imposing, for example, their own Western values and ideas of human rights?

ANT 101 Week 1 DQ 2 Studying Culture
Studying Culture. 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 all cultures
b. Whether it is possible to truly view a culture without being influenced by the cultural constructs of our own
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.
