  • My Egyptian Culture
    622 words
    Egypt The majority of people have various ways of viewing cultures. Because of close-mindedness and lack of cultural education, people have a difficult time interacting with different societies.

Although people view Egypt as a plain desert with camel riders, my experience from living there shows Egypt to be a developing civil...

  • Culture Of People
    289 words
    HW#3 pg. 159 #2, 3#2. I think it's hard to separate the descriptive aspect and the compared perspective aspect. There is such a fine line between the two of them and many times overlapping.

I know for myself there are cultures that I wouldn't want to live in, but that doesn't make them any better or worse than the one I live in. I couldn't live in th...
  • Bertrand And Doudou
    542 words
    "Palm Wine" is a story of an anthropologist named Bertrand that traveled to Senegal on a graduate fellowship to collect proverbs from its people (McKnight 35). The miscommunication, lack of understanding, and appreciation for the people of Senegal caused alienation between them and Bertrand. I believe that if Bertrand went to Senegal with an absorbent mind frame and stuck to his academic responsibilities, he would have fulfilled his purpose and came out of this journey with a new found respect a...

  • Most Famous Attempt For Cultural Sovereignty
    762 words
    Cultural Sovereignty Cultural sovereignty sounds like a good idea, but like every good idea someone can find a way to make it bad. Many peoples have attempted to achieve cultural sovereignty, and yet to my knowledge it has not succeeded.

Right now in Iraq, a majority of people would like to set up their own g...
