"The Cultural Other"

Research the history and traditions of a culture that is of special interest to you. You may research the arts, musical traditions, literature, significant historical events, and religions of your chosen culture. Armed with this background, create a portfolio of an invented person from that culture. The result will be a case study. Decide on the age, gender, socioeconomic class, family situation, and community role of the individual, as well as a personal crisis the individual has involving culture. Write up the case study. Include a key historical event that has some influence on the case.
