This paper was originally written for Dr. Bascom Guffin’s Sociology-Anthropology 101 course Introduction to Anthropology. This paper asked students to “focus an anthropological lens on their lives.” It challenged them to use the anthropological knowledge and stance they developed in the class to investigate some aspect of their own lived experience. They had to bring to bear theories and concepts from at least two course readings as well as an outside scholarly source, using them to create a singular, coherent argument. The paper uses Chicago citation style.
