Introduction to Cultural Anthropology (GSF1719B). In the Final Research Paper, you will examine your own culture from an etic (outsider?s) perspective and another culture from an emic (insider?s) perspective to demonstrate your understanding of cultural relativism and examine misconceptions and ethnocentric beliefs concerning each of these cultures. Keep the distinction between cultural relativism and moral relativism in mind as you write your final paper. Even if you do not personally agree with a cultural practice, demonstrate your understanding of the practice in its cultural context. Avoid opinionated or judgmental language in your paper.Cultural relativism is the idea that the beliefs and practices of a culture should be understood within the context of that particular culture?s background, history, and current events surrounding it. We should not ethnocentrically impose our own beliefs and opinions, which are products of our own enculturation.
