Question Description

Directions for 4-6 page Assignment in APA format:

  1. Choose a time and location for where/when you are going to conduct your observations of an ethnographic scene (mall, public transportation, coffee shop, etc.).
  2. Go to the specified location and proceed with your observations. Find a place to sit quietly and to simply watch what is going on. Do not talk to or interview people during this time.
  3. Take notes. Include details about the scene itself (time of day, lighting, furniture, plants, sounds, temperature, smell, vibe/energy, etc), details about the people around you (their characteristics, their behavior).
  4. When your 25 minutes are finished, leave the scene. In a quiet place, fill out your notes. At this time, you should start to think about anthropological concepts that fit with your observations. This step is critical.
  5. Write a 4-6 page reaction paper about your observations Your paper should:
  • Define and discuss culture using anthropological terms and ideas
  • Include a ‘thick description’ of the location with clear detail of your observations
  • Analyze your observations, identifying four anthropological concepts that fit your observations. Define the concept and analyze how it fits your observations.
  • Include your field notes at the end
  • Conclude with a discussion of and reflection on your experience of the situation. For example you might write how you felt when you started to detect a pattern in characteristics and/or behavior.
