Armenian Culture

Armenian Culture

Details: As discussed previously, an autoethnography is a type of research that connects the author’s personal
experiences to wider cultural, political, and social meanings. Using the brainstorming from previous
assignments, you will now compile your own autoethnography discussing the topic that you have
previously chosen. In this assignment, I am looking for you to write a story about your subculture, its
symbols, rituals, and routines, all while drawing on different aspects of this class and connecting it to
society at large. This paper allows you to investigate your subculture and some aspects that may be taken-
for-granted all while critically assessing this subculture from both outsider and insider perspectives. Make
sure you are writing in a way that keeps in mind that your “audience” may not be a member of the
subculture and thus, being specific is necessary. Creativity is encouraged. Unless instructed otherwise,
you ARE encouraged to use aspects from the previous assignments in this class to incorporate into your
final paper. Below are aspects to keep in mind while writing your story as well as the structure/formatting
for the assignment:
1. First, describe what your subculture is. What are some of the symbols, figures of speech, rituals, and
routines in your subculture
. If you could share anything about your subculture to explain it to an outsider
(and always pretend you are writing to an outsider, whether you know I am one or not), what would it be?
Helpful hint: parts of your other three assignments may be helpful in piecing this section together.
2. Critically think about your subculture. What is your place in this subculture? In other words, what is your
role and experience?

3. How do aspects of your subculture connect to aspects of society at large? What social events, problems,
power relationships or understandings does it connect to? What context should your subculture be
understood in?
4. Lastly, what have you learned about your subculture from this process? Have you changed your mind about
any aspects of your subculture? If so, which and why?

5. This assignment should be written in paragraph format, 12pt, Times New Roman font. The assignment
SHOULD be double spaced. Please submit it on Canvas using a Word file or PDF. Please include a cover
page as seen on Canvas as well as a reference page. Since you are directly referring back to the material
as stated in this class, you may use the class slides as your references. Reference page format may be in
either ASA or APA.
6. Final page count should be the following: 1 page cover page, 3 pages of your autoethnography, 1 page
reference page. Therefore, it will be a total of 5 pages completed.
