Next week, we are going to talk about the topic of CULTURE. To do this, we will discuss two readings (and watch a film in class).
One reading is by Miner, an anthropologist writing in the 1950s about a group of people called the Nacirema.
The other reading is by a Chicana feminist writer named Gloria Anzaldua, who is writing about issues of language and identity in this chapter of her book, Borderlands/La Frontera: the New Mestiza.
Please read the two pieces and respond to the reading questions to prepare yourself for the class discussion.
