I have chosen Cultural Appropriation as my central theme for this assignment. I decided on this theme due to the fact that I myself am bicultural and often see cultural appropriation of my 2 cultures in different contexts as well as other cultures. I have chosen the 3 academic articles and 2 media articles for my source material. However I will mainly be focusing on my the first academic article listed below.

Academic Article 1:

    Hey Camille. I think you were really informative with this post. The inclusion of different types of articles shows that you have put a lot of thought into this assignment and kept your options open if one doesn’t work out the way you wanted it too. One thing that I would improve on is to just give a small description of the article as it would make it easier for the audience to understand. Otherwise it was a really good read. Thank you 🙂
