Culture Through Film Key Concepts and Exercises from Lecture Week Three: Doing  Anthropology Anthropological Considerations for Our Own Lives A. Personal encounters How  do we behave when  we encounter  other cultures, and  people  different from ourselves, in terms of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class? Work to identify our own  biases and  prejudices in light of learned   anthropological concepts. B. News  and  Information Learn to identify the implicit and  explicit biases and  prejudices in our  society as these are exhibited  in news coverage, television shows, movies,  advertising, and  other forms of cultural expression. C. Familial Tendencies Ingrained  attitudes  should  be questioned  and  challenged, if for no other reason   than  to either alter these beliefs, or at least to hold  onto these beliefs but with  a  better understanding  of alternative views. Dimensions  of Anthropological Fieldwork Doing anthropological fieldwork  is one of the most exciting forms of academic  research. We travel, meet new  people, learn local customs, witness new  events, and  come  to better appreciate the complexity of the human  condition.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
