In The Naked Anthropologist: Tales from Around the World

In The Naked Anthropologist: Tales from Around the World

For this essay, you are responsible for reading all three of the articles provided in .pdf format. They are:
Clifton, James 1992 Don’t Mess with Eagle Power! In The Naked Anthropologist: Tales from Around the World, edited by Philip R. DeVita, pp. 35-46. Wadsworth Publishing Company: Belmont, California.
Colfer, Carol J. 1992 Of Teamwork, Faith, and Trust in West Sumatra. In The Naked Anthropologist: Tales from Around the World, edited by Philip R. DeVita, pp. 90-99. Wadsworth Publishing Company: Belmont, California.
Kearney, Michael 1992 A Very Bad Disease of the Arms. In The Naked Anthropologist: Tales from Around the World, edited by Philip R. DeVita, pp. 47-57. Wadsworth Publishing Company: Belmont, California.
After reading all of the articles, I want you to write an essay that is a self-reflexive response to ONE of the articles you have read. It is appropriate in a paper like this to use examples from your own experience or the experience of those you know to connect with ideas or theories that you read about in the articles, although it is not required. If you have a particularly strong reaction to the practices of other cultures, I encourage you to explore WHY you had such a strong reaction. Is it because the practices in these cultures are so very different from your own? I would encourage you to be aware of ethnocentrism and the possibility that you might experience ethnocentric reactions when reading about cultural practices that are quite different from your own.
Your essay should be a minimum of 500 words.
In order to do well on this assignment, you should be sure that your essay contains the following elements:
You must have an introduction with a clear thesis statement You must write your essay in paragraphs with complete sentences You must cite where you have gotten your information You must have a clear conclusion You must include references for the sources you have used
If you do not cite the articles when appropriate, that is plagiarism, and at the very least your paper will be docked. At the very worst, you will receive no credit for the paper (in the case of severe and egregious plagiarism)
