Anthropological Perspective on Culture

general article writing



Begin with an introductory paragraph that has a thesis statement at the end. The introduction

should set up your topic, giving a preview and summary of the analysis you will present in the

body of the paper. The thesis statement is the last sentence or two of the introduction and

states what the main point structuring your paper will be.

Part I

Using the article by Miner (1956) and the feedback you received from your instructor on your

worksheet in Week Three, describe one aspect of your own culture from an etic perspective.

See the appropriate Sections in the Textbook in the List of Topics, based on your chosen topic

from Week Three, for information on how to approach your paper from an anthropological

perspective. You can describe American culture in general, as Miner does, or you can describe

an American subculture, such as a specific geographical group (e.g., New Yorkers), a particular

ethnicity (e.g., African Americans), or an age-related category of Americans (e.g., millennials).

Use reputable statistics and/or scholarly research to support any factual statements. Do not rely

any factual statements. Do not rely upon personal experience or opinion.
