I didn’t have any idea what Anthropology was exactly. There’s so much I have learned from this course. I am going to talk about week 1. At first when you asked us to describe a street with details, I started to feel like I was undercover FBI agent and looking around my surroundings that now when I drive somewhere I look at details and what the people are wearing and going. Since week 1, I have been more alert around my surroundings.
We had to draw our kinship. I found it really fun and interesting because I had to ask my parents about how many brothers and sisters each had and I had to draw it. Then I acknowledged that my dad had almost all brothers but had 2 sisters and my mom had 4 sister and 4 brothers all together. My mom had more boys than girls then it got me thinking that boys in our family males are more dominate than girls.
How sushi went global (lecture 6.1, slide 12). We are surrounded by cultural diffusion and we don’t know like baseball and disneyland is from America and now it’s at japan. We have pokemon and nintendo. In the 19th century it was hard to think that we would have so much cultural diffusion. The world is changing fast and we don’t realize that so much is changing around us. Again I will mention amine and I’ve noticed that a lot of college students watch it. Amine has become a big part in America that we wait to watch it in subtitles or english dubbed. It seems like every country takes something and makes it their own. I am one of those students that is watching anime. That I would’ve never thought it was cultural diffusion. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that where taking part of it.
