Re: Tribalism

Ben Laird (LFAS) ·
Hey Jackline, nice work so far! By tribalism I assume that you mean the discrimination of a group of people based on their tribe. This in an interesting inquiry question and topic of which I have little knowledge. It seems to me though that the political, economic, and social effects of such discrimination and racism are byproducts of the horrible injustices involved during colonialism by european countries in the late 800's. In this time period, as you may well be aware, many separate...

Re: Impacts of National cultures and the effectiveness of the process in improvement methods.

I love your topic! I also love how in depth you went, and how you gave the contrast between different national cultures. I'm excited to see where you take this topic. Maybe a direction you could take this in is viewing how it affect things like resource management, the economy, and job distribution. This link could help, if you would like: https://www.degruyter.com/view...themes-2016-0014.xml

Hello Jackline, You have a very nice and interesting topic about National cultures and their effectiveness.I have learnt a lot because you have made it so clear about the different cultures we have.I think you should also research on how we can preserve these cultures. Good luck. Hope this link can help:www.wikihow.com/Preserve-Your-Culture

I’m really interested to see what you’ll find out! You’ve planned this really thoroughly (not to say you don’t usually, but this one especially), and I’m hoping that you get to cover everything that you’ve listed, because I’m curious as well.

Hi Jim, I really enjoy the colour code system, it also makes it easier for the reader to focus on the important points. I'm excited for you to post the research about the education system rankings. I think it would be interesting to know what the ranking system looks at, like performance from the students, the teachers?

HELLO ANIKA! i really like the initiative you are taking on the modern food industry based on its effect on both health and environment.i also like the fact that through you research you have learned to become far more conscious of the food brands that you choose to support.i think it could be more interesting if you elaborated more on the specific food brands that you are mostly conscious of.

Re: Who makes better leaders: Introverts or Extroverts - Research round 4

Hey Priya! This is a really cool round of research! I've never consciously considered the connection between introversion and extroversion and emotions of happiness and sadness; it's a very interesting concept that I think many people do not clue in to. Great work! Here are some links which may help with your research: - http://marathonhrcg.com/blog/i...e-than-meets-the-eye - http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/e...94c2e4b0b6a430316b3a Good luck!

Hi Priya, It's amazing that you decided to do this topic. I've always wondered if only certain types of people can possess leadership, and whether extroversion or introversion has anything to do with it. Also, I think it would be super cool to create a diagram that displays the typical traits associated with extroverts and introverts and go around asking people who they'd think would make better leaders and why. This would open up some great conversation and what you find may further your...

Re: Fan culture - all about stereotypes!

Wow! This is a really interesting post. I love how you focused on why people feel inclined to degrade fans, instead of just talking about how fans are degraded. It could be interesting to approach this from an evolutionary aspect as well, perhaps in future research. For example, Jenkins talks about tendencies such as working for class interest and how that creates good versus bad taste. Could learning about why humans desire class stability tell us more about fan culture? It seems a little...

Re: Fan culture - all about stereotypes!

Hey Takako! Being a "fan" has such a bad conotation within our society today, especially if the you are a fan of something or someone that isn't part of the trends. As a society we need to stop our judgement towards a persons taste and interest. This post was a great one and it was very informative! I look forward to you future posts! Good Luck!

Re: Research Round #1- Ancient Egypt

Hey Amanda, I liked the point you made that Egyptians were obsessed with life and not death as I feel that it could be a misconception. As you may know how much Egyptians contributed to science, like the calendar, mathematics, medicine and astronomy. What I find quite interesting was how similar their calendar was to ours, with 365 days, 12 months and three seasons (corresponded to the cycle of the Nile and agriculture). I believe I'd be cool if you looked at some of their involvement with...

Hey Amanda, neat research! Ancient Egypt is certainly a very fascinating civilization;perhaps one of the most interesting and diverse Ancient civilizations that we know a lot about. At very least it is one of the best preserved ancient cultures. I found it interesting how you focused on a common myth, namely the Egyptians obsession of death. In reality, like so many other ancient cultures but perhaps done in the most extravagant and noticeable way, they were obsessed by the afterlife and...

Re: Research Round #1- Ancient Egypt

Hey Amanda, I too liked your clarification of the misconception of Egyptians being fascinated with death rather than life. Very well-done and detailed research. However, just some feedback, maybe lay out your research differently; more spread out and organized into certain topics. I just think it might be easier to follow, but great work all the same!

Re: How are the layers of culture manifested differing to levels of depth?

Hi Jackline, One thing I have heard is that culture is very difficult to define. I see you didn't have a problem with that. Personally, I was surprised to think that education is a part of culture but after thinking about it for a while, it now seems obvious. Generations have passed down their teachings, natural remedies and other knowledge and this can be considered education. In modern society, we are so used to thinking about education as textbooks and pencils that we forget education can...

Re: How are the layers of culture manifested differing to levels of depth?

Hey jackline! I never knew there were so many levels of culture between the different groups in society! It makes me realize how many different perspectives there are within a group of people. Cultures are different per person out there and that is the best part about learning. It allows people with different perspectives to learn and develope and open mind. great work! Good luck!

Re: "My Love Letter to Cosplay" - Adam Savage

Hey Takako, Firstly I don't know much about Cosplay, however, I have heard some of those sayings about the event. After watching the video, I think that it's great to hear that what the costumes mean to people who attend the event.

Re: Research Update

Hi Sophie, In many ways, folklore has a profound effect on many aspects of culture. Therefore, widening you research scope to include all these aspects might help you form a big picture connecting not only the repercussions of colonization on folklore but also some of the the effects folklore has on people's lifestyle.
