The film, Margaret Mead: Coming of Age
Paper instructions:
First, watch the film, Margaret Mead: Coming of Age. Once you have done that, go through the PowerPoint, Ethnographic Fieldwork: The Essence of Cultural Anthropology. Comment on how Margaret Mead appeared to do her fieldwork. Did she make mistakes? Did she add value, in your opinion, to both the lives of the people she studied and to anthropology? Think about what can go wrong when an anthropologist goes to the field. Your textbook and the PowerPoint will help. How do you think you would fare as an anthropologist in a completely different place? Do you have any experience with being the ‘outsider?’
