Week 6

Section V of your final project allows you to think broadly about using methods of cultural anthropology to understand other cultures as well as your own culture. Part of this section involves conducting an interview with one of your film’s characters, and part of this interview is understanding the system of power surrounding your character. Remember that power comes from a variety of sources including kinship systems, social relationships, economic standing, religion, and politics.

Compose your initial post as if you were conducting this interview. In your initial post, be sure to do the following:

Identify the film.
Name the character from the film.
Briefly summarize the role of the character in the film.
Compose at least five questions that would help you gain a better understanding of the character’s cultural practices, including the character’s position within some expression of power in the film.
Explain how those questions would help you gain a better understanding of the character’s cultural practices, including the character’s position within some expression of power in the film.
Remember to practice the principles of cultural relativism.
