Option A: Race and Identity
Historian Robin Kelley stated, “Race was never just a matter of how you look, it’s about how people assign meaning to how you look” (Herbes-Sommers, 2003). Considering what you learned from the Social Implications of Race video clip, Chapter 3 in your textbook, and your own experiences, answer the following questions:
⦁ What do you think is meant by the term racial smog?
⦁ How do racial categories shape our identities and social status?
Below is the video clip so that the discussion can be completed
Locating Scholarly Resources
The intention of this assignment is to help you become familiar with conducting anthropological research using the Ashford University Library and prepare you for the Final Research Paper. You will also become familiar with identifying the thesis statement in articles. For this assignment, you will be locating articles and texts from a variety of databases that are commonly used in anthropological research.
In addition to being able to locate articles, it is important to be able to identify the thesis statements of the articles or texts to make sure they will be useful in your research.
You have already been assigned three articles from the “Article Selector” quiz. To begin, please locate each of the articles in the Ashford University Library. For help with how to locate these articles, please view the ANT101 Finding an Article in the AU Library tutorial.
After you have located the articles, the next step is to identify the thesis statement that is presented in each article. For help with identifying the thesis statements, please review the ANT101: Introduction to Cultural Anthropology: Finding Thesis Statements tutorial. After you have identified the thesis statements in your assigned articles, please complete the Locating Scholarly Resources worksheet. Submit your completed worksheet via Waypoint.
