Response Paper #1
ANTH 103 (online)
DUE: by Fri 6/26 (week 6) at 11:59 pm by uploading to Blackboard
NOTE 6/23/20: The above day in the due date was incorrect on the initial posting of this assignment sheet. It said “Sun 6/26,” but 6/26 is Friday, not Sunday. I have now corrected “Sun” to “Fri” above. It was correct in the Syllabus and on Blackboard all along. The only place it indicated Sunday was here. Sorry about that.
*Remember to closely attend to any feedback given on previous writing assignments, as well as the “Make Yours Look Like Mine” Exercises—do NOT submit this until you have!
*Make sure you follow the Writing Documents: Writing Papers, Citing, and Issues!
Regarding the Citing document, note below that, unlike the Analytic Papers, you will not be providing in-text citations for these; however, note that you will provide a Works Cited section.
Here we will begin using Caring For Patients from Different Cultures, 5th ed. with a direct focus on the topic of medical anthropology. You will provide responses to two Response Papers. If you are going in to health care, this book is obviously directly useful. However, even if you are not, this material is still quite useful. The passages present rich examples of cross-cultural cases that tie back to our textbook material. Note that the first Response Paper also includes viewing a video online; the second includes reading a PDF posted on Blackboard.
Chapters for Response Paper #1:
–Caring for Patients… c. 1 (ONLY: pp. 1-3 and 11-23)
–Caring for Patients… c. 2 “Communication and Time Orientation”
–Caring for Patients… c. 7 “Men and Women”
–Caring for Patients… c. 6 “Family”
–Caring for Patients… c. 4 “Religion and Spirituality”
First, Important Information on Caring for Patients From Different Cultures:
Always keep in mind that this book uses common labels to refer to societal groupings of people by religion, nationality, ethnicity, so-called “race,” etc. For example, references are made to “African American,” “Anglo American,” “Arab,” “Hmong,” “Jewish,” “Mexican” (note those are in alphabetical order), and so on with regard to particular practices or beliefs.
Remember that these broad terms are used to make generalizations to help understand the group and the author is not implying that a particular practice or behavior applies to all members of the group. The author explains this in c. 1, and you will explain this yourself as part of the assignment. Further, the Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie explains this idea based on her own experience in a popular TED Talk video “The Danger of a Single Story.” You will explain this as part of the assignment as well.
Use of these labels should also not imply that there is some sort of natural link between the given group and the given practice or belief. Rather, the practices or beliefs discussed tend to be more common among the given group. You of course may be a member of one of the
2
referenced groups yourself; and what you read may not apply, or apply the same, to you or what you know.
Just remember that these are general guidelines; also remember they are subject to change. Applying guidelines by group affiliation can be useful and these are designed to help. But an open mind should always be applied as well.
What to do for the assignment:
Go through the chapter’s sections and subsections and, in your own words, provide examples of the material provided to make the given point. These should be brief, as you are not explaining anything beyond the explanation given by the author (just in your own words). But you must be specific with regard to the cultural background being conveyed and the point of it—how it connects to the cultural difference being described. You must avoid general references such as “In some cultures…” You must also avoid characterizations that, even if they do indicate the specific cultural background, do not connect it the cultural difference being described. Use these questions as guiding points: What cultural background are you referring to? What is the cultural difference? And what is the connection between the cultural background and the cultural difference you’re explaining? Again, avoid general references and characterizations. What exactly is the cultural difference and what’s the point with regard to the cultural background?
The idea here is that going beyond simply reading these cases, taking down examples of them in your own words will help solidify for you the point of each section/subsection.
SPECIAL NOTES FOR CITING:
As noted above, DO NOT provide in-text citations for this assignment. All you are doing is providing examples from the reading, so no need to point that out. However, you MUST include works cited at the end—because, though you are not providing in-text citations, you are nevertheless taking material from this source, so it needs to be cited. The Works Cited entry for Caring for Patients from Different Cultures must look like this:
Geri-Ann Galanti. Caring for Patients from Different Cultures. 5th ed., University of Pennsylvania Press, 2015.
Formatting:
To format this you must indicate the chapter in bold then the section and subsection (or just section for the cases of no subsections) in bold, then provide your response under that. See examples below.
Note that when making such a list, you must avoid auto-formatting that indents the list—all text on the left margin must be at the standard one inch. This is for saving paper (or space) and keeping you free from the tyranny of auto-formatting for greater ease in editing, copy/pasting, and generally working further with the document. Do, however, double space as usual.
Your responses must, for example, look like the following:
3
c. 2 “Communication and Time Orientation”
Language Issues – Idioms
Your response….
Language Issues – Another English
Your response….
Language Issues – Same Language, Different Meaning
Your response….
THE CHAPTERS:
c. 1 “Basic Concepts” (ONLY: pp. 1-3 and 11-23)
NOTE: This is the intro material, not one of the content-specific chapters that follow. So the above example format does not apply here. Simply respond to these three prompts below with a paragraph each. And note paragraphs must be indented (see Section II of Writing Papers). The above example format begins with the next chapter.
–Briefly explain the concept “cultural competence” under the section titled “Cultural Competence,” with specific examples.
–Briefly explain the difference between stereotypes and generalizations under the section “Stereotype Versus Generalization,” with specific examples.
–Briefly summarize the TED Talk video “The Danger of a Single Story” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. You must explain her point, with specific examples.
NOTE: Do not formally cite this; simply refer to it:

———-
c. 2 “Communication and Time Orientation”
“Language Issues” covers nine subsections (beginning with “Idioms”)
–Read over the material and provide, in your own words, one of the examples explained for ANY FIVE of the nine subsections.
“Communication Style” covers six subsections (beginning with “Formal Versus Informal Language”)
–Read over all material and provide, in your own words, one of the examples explained for ANY FOUR of the six subsections.
“Interpreters”
–Read over all the material and provide, in your own words, ANY ONE of the examples explained
4

–Read over all the material and provide, in your own words, ANY ONE of the examples explained
“Nonverbal Communication” covers four subsections (beginning with “Eye Contact”)
–Read over the material and provide, in your own words, one of the examples explained from ANY TWO of the four subsections.
———-
c. 7 “Men and Women”
“Sex Roles” covers four subsections (beginning with “Women as Caretakers”)
–For each of the four subsections, read over the material and provide, in your own words, one of the examples explained (SO FOUR TOTAL).
“Female Purity” covers three subsections (beginning with “Sexual Segregation”)
–For each of the three subsections, read over the material and provide, in your own words, one of the examples explained (SO THREE TOTAL).
“Female Modesty”
–Read over all the material and provide, in your own words, TWO of the examples explained
“Domestic Violence”
–Read over all the material and provide, in your own words, TWO of the examples explained
———-
c. 6 “Family”

–For each of the two subsections, read over the material and provide, in your own words, one of the examples explained (SO TWO TOTAL).
“The Role of the Family” covers seven subsections (beginning with “What Constitutes Family?”)
–Read over the material and for ANY FIVE of the seven subsections provide, in your own words, one of the examples explained
———-
c. 4 “Religion and Spirituality”
“Religious Practices” covers eight subsections, corresponding to different religions or sects of religions (beginning with “Buddhist”)
–For each of the eight subsections, read over the material and provide, in your own words, one of the examples explained for ANY FIVE of the eight subsections.
“Sacred Symbols” covers six subsections, corresponding to different religions or sects of religions (beginning with “Catholic”)
5
–For each of the six subsections, read over the material and provide, in your own words, one of the examples explained for ANY FIVE of the eight subsections
NOTE: The second subsection in this section is titled “Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints).” Russell M. Nelson, who became the seventeenth president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in January, 2018, at the age of 93, recently made an announcement regarding references to the name of the church. On 8/16/2018, President Nelson officially announced that, based on a revelation to him from god, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints should no longer be referred to with its nickname “Mormon” or in its abbreviated form, “LDS,” both quite common. Rather, the entire name, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints should be used. For the purposes of writing for this class, you must use the full name, “Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints” at least the first time. After that, again, for the purposes of this class, you may use the abbreviation President Russell, and, according to him, god, does not prefer, “LDS” for the sake of space.
However, do not use the nickname “Mormon,” as that is not—and never was—the name of the church and the church now officially requests that it not be used. As for the members of the church, rather than “Mormons,” they would be “Latter-day Saints,” “members of the LDS church,” or the like. Though note, some members of the church will likely continue to self-apply the term; that’s up to them (or you if you are one).
On that note, if you are a member of this church and would prefer to use “Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints” in all cases, please feel free. If you are not a member of the church but would like to nevertheless use the full name, feel free as well. And if you are not a member of this church and interact with someone who is, in a health care setting or otherwise, you should keep this naming convention in mind.
More on this:
Note there is a connection here with the lack of understanding that often accompanies these kinds of issues. The Book of Mormon is believed by followers to have been assembled by a prophet named Mormon. The religion was never called Mormonism and the followers never called Mormons, except from the outside. The labels, however, over time became commonplace and even taken on by many of the followers themselves. Nevertheless, it is not quite an accurate way to label this religion and its followers.
Naming conventions of this sort are important, as they tend to be connected to identity and how people, both inside and out, view the religion. For a similar case, for a long time, in the U.S. and much of the “West,” Islam was generally known as “Muhammadanism.” According to Islam, Muhammad was a prophet who the one true god, Allah, spoke through in order to create this religion. Within Islam, Muhammad is recognized as a prophet, but, importantly, Muhammad is not worshipped. Only Allah is worshiped. Therefore, referring to this religion as Muhammadanism is an inaccuracy that reflects a misunderstanding of how this religion works. Also, it is offensive, as it implies Muhammad is perceived as the incarnation of god, beyond Allah. But in this religion, nothing is beyond Allah. Note
6
that the name Muhammadanism was essentially modeled after the name Christianity, the dominant religion of the West. And of course, in that religion, Christ is indeed perceived to be the incarnation of god. In other words, in the naming, the concepts of one religion were being applied to another religion, which resulted in misunderstanding.
This is why the concept of cultural relativism—viewing the other from the other’s point of view—is so important. By using this concept, we can more effectively understand what’s going on around us.
“Spiritual Beliefs and Practices” covers four subsections (beginning with “Prayer”)
–For each of the four subsections, read over the material and provide, in your own words, one of the examples explained (SO FOUR TOTAL).
Grading
Much of your grade is based on my interpretation of your understanding of the material and the quality of your expression of the content. This is subjective, but note you should not look at this as “just his opinion.” Note that “my interpretation” or “opinion” is indeed subjective to a degree, but it is rooted in expertise and experience in the field, as well as with writing.
Your paper is a gestalt, or a whole greater than the sum of its parts, and will be graded as such. There are not set point values for particular parts. However, there are a few parts with their own grading standards. Failure to meet these will result in the following standardized deductions:
For Response Papers:
–Not being specific with regard to the cultural background being conveyed and the point of it—how it connects to the cultural difference being described. Remember, you must avoid general references such as “In some cultures…” You must also avoid characterizations that, even if they do indicate the specific cultural background, do not connect it the cultural difference being described.
Highest possible grade: C (and probably lower)
–Improper format—see example above
Highest possible grade: B
–Disregard for material on the Issues document / disregard for comments I have left on previous work
Highest possible grade: B (and note for the last one—disregard for previous comments by me—it will likely be lower)
Make sure your paper doesn’t fall into any of these categories!
