Question Description

Prepare a 5-6 page ethnographic study of a group or culture to which you belong

“Ethnography” –- the official name of this kind of research and writing – tends to call to mind distant cultures – the Bedouin of the Arabian Peninsula, or the natives of the Amazon rainforest. But we all belong to several cultures – and are surrounded by many, many more. Any social group will for its own culture – skateboarders, Facebook users, online gamers, athletic teams. Any of them (or almost any) can be fertile ground for an ethnographic study.

Note that, in an ideal world, you wouldn’t choose a group that you’re part of , since it’ll be harder to be objective. We will try to assure objectivity by including at least two secondary sources – books, articles, web sites, and so on.

Style: Writing is clear and appropriate. Tone and language reflect the purpose and audience of the essay.
