Biculturalism: New Article

After much consideration and research I have decided to change my central theme from the very specific Cultural Appropriation to a much broader linking theme of Biculturalism. I’ve come to this decision as previously mentioned I identify myself as bicultural and wish to explore this further as an academic topic. With that in mind I have had to find a new article

Biculturalism and Context: What Is Biculturalism, and When Is It Adaptive?

By Seth J. Schwartza & Jennifer B. Ungerb


I have chosen this article as my academic source because it clearly outlines what biculturalism is, how it develops and when it is most adaptive. Which I found to be most helpful in understanding biculturalism at a more academic and critically thinking level than just as some who is bicultural.



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.
