ANTH101—World Cultures: Discussion Questions for Week 2 articles (3, 4, and 5): Article 3: “Shakespeare in the Bush”, by Laura Bohannan Review Questions from the Book: In what ways does Bohannan’s attempt to tell the story of Hamlet to the Tiv illustrate the concept of naïve realism? Using Bohannan’s experience of telling the story of Hamlet to the Tiv and the response of the Tiv elders to her words, illustrate cross-cultural misunderstanding. What are the most important parts of Hamlet that the Tiv found it necessary to reinterpret? Additional review questions: Bohannan believed that there were certain universal concepts that were present within all cultures. After reading this article do you feel that that statement is true? What concepts were different and which were similar? Do you think that language and translations may have caused some difficulty in the understanding of the story? How? Why was Bohannan getting frustrated while telling the story of Hamlet to the Tiv elders?

    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.
