Cultural Appropriation Research Paper

Instructions:

In the last decade, much discussion and debate concerning cultural appropriation has occurred in the United States. Cultural appropriation has been defined as the act of taking or using things from a culture that is not your own, especially without showing that you understand or respect this culture. Controversy and debate about this topic occurs in many areas of our society, from what constitutes appropriate Halloween costumes and how to wear jewelry and clothing from cultures not ones own (if at all) to whether or not elements from one culture can be placed into a different environment, and so on.

For this assignment you will be conducting research into cultural appropriation and addressing the criteria below in a research paper. As you conduct your research and review the Unit 3 material, please highlight, underline, or make note of important or persuasive points that you see authors making in their work, as well as where you see arguments that you think fall short.

  • ­What criteria do you think should be applied to determine whether a person is engaging in an act of cultural appropriation or whether that person is acting appropriately in her use of taking or using things from another culture?
  • For this assignment, you are encouraged to use examples from popular culture, explore references to different public figures and artwork discussed in the essays you read, and employ other ideas to help you create your list of criteria.

Research Paper Criteria:

  • Your essay should be a minimum of 500 words.
  • In the first part of the research paper, please explain your criteria to determine whether someone using cultural items that are not their own is appropriate or not.
  • Then, explain each criteria you identify along with any quotations and examples you have found in your research.
  • Finally, please offer additional reflections on the idea of cultural appropriation.

Please support your 500-word essay with references to relevant resources. Make sure to review the Unit 3 video on cultural appropriation before completing the essay.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgEm8mExS38

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"

Universitywritingservices.com has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied
