1-2 Short Answer: Cultural Objects and Their Culture. Overview
For this assignment, you will work on items that belong to the humanities and explore the cultures they represent. You will also evaluate “big questions” that can be associated with the humanities and determine how you can go about answering them.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
List three cultures or subcultures you identify strongly with, and rank them from most to least significant in your life. These can be national, ethnic, religious, and they can include subcultures or groups related to your personal interests.
Identify one representative object from the humanities for each of the cultures or subcultures you identify with.
In a few words, explain how the cultural object reflects the culture in which it exists. Consider which aspects of culture have relevance for each object: politics, history, religion, social perceptions, technology, media, education, and so on.
