Discussion: Diversity and the Humanities
Each discussion is meant to be a collaborative space for conversation in which to process the concepts within the course. To ensure an interesting and respectful discussion, you are encouraged to think creatively about your initial posts and build upon the points made by your peers. Discussing challenges that face our world often means investigating opinions and ideas different from your own. Remember to remain thoughtful and respectful towards your peers and instructor in your discussion post and replies, as discussed in the Module One Overview. It is also important to review the module resources and read the prompts in their entirety before participating in the discussion.
Create one initial post and follow up with at least two response posts.
For your initial post, address the following:
Choose a subculture you identify with and select a cultural element or experience that expresses something unique about that group.
How might an insider experience this cultural expression?
How might an outsider experience this cultural expression?
How does adopting both insider and outsider perspectives inform your understanding of the social impact of this cultural expression?
