Cultural Experience Field Report #2


I Choose  


  For this assignment, you will choose a virtual cultural venue from  the instructions below to visit online and write a short 500-800  word report about your visit.   

For your report, choose one virtual venue from this pre-approved list  that most interests you, or contact your professor for approval of your  own online choice. If your choice below has both a website and a video,  make sure you examine both. If you need special accommodations to  complete this assignment, please inform your instructor and contact the Accessibility Accommodations office for guidance.  

Please watch the entire performance or thoroughly explore the venue you choose.  



Restrictions:  The experience should be viewed  during the current semester.  If this is impossible, contact the  instructor to arrange for alternatives.  You may not report on a  cultural experience viewed prior to this class. 

Write a report after you have explored or viewed the online resource. 

Your report should include the following information. Include photos  or links that help convey the information. As always, be sure to  document all sources you consult in preparing your work. This includes  any learning resources from the class, or information from the websites  that informed you about the particular item you explored. 

  • Name and location of event or name and director of the film,  writer’s name etc. If there is on-line information about what you  viewed, be sure to include a link to it within the text of your essay in  an appropriate place.  
  • Type of event. For example is it a film, ritual, service,  ceremony, poetry reading, festival, author interview etc. Make sure to  include the name of the authors, directors, producers, speakers, author  of your favorite poem (if poetry festival or event).  
  • Briefly describe the general setting by talking a bit about the  location (you can research the location online) and the general overall  “vibe” of the place or places viewed. 
  • Describe at least one aspect of what you viewed that you found  especially interesting. For example, you might write about the different  ways the same ritual is conducted by different groups, a poem you  really liked from the reading or poetry festival, something an author or  direct said that really struck you. Explain what impressed or affected  you, and why. Your reaction can be positive or negative, as long as you  offer an explanation. 
  • Identify and use at least two tools, concepts or methods that you  have learned about in this class in the Learning Resources to talk about  your viewing. For example, if you view a director’s commentary, you  might point out what the director says about lighting or the set, or if  you view to a ritual, talk about the myth the ritual is based on, or if  you watch a spoken word or poetry reading, you can talk about specific  literary language or imagery. Make sure you are explicit in identifying  the tools/concept/methods you are using and the specific learning  resources they come from. Be sure to inform the reader about the  tool/concept/method through a quote or paraphrase from the learning  resource. Then, make sure to tell the reader how you interpret and/or  analyze some elements of what you experience with the tools.  
  • Be sure to cite the learning resources you have used in MLA format. Please see 
  • Reflect on the relevance–if any–of your viewing to your everyday  life.  How did the experience engage your feelings or emotions, if at  all? What does this tell you about human culture, and/or about  yourself? 

STOP: Before you hand in your assignment, ask yourself the following questions:  

  1. Have I clearly provided identifying information about what I  viewed in terms of who was involved and where it took place and provided  the URL, if applicable? Have I done what I could to describe the  setting and/or vibe? 
  2. Have I identified and explained an especially interesting aspect  of the experience and used examples to illustrate reflections and to  explain why this aspect was interesting? 
  3. Have I identified and applied two tools, concepts or methods of  interpretation from learning resources to concrete and specific examples  from visit? 
  4. Have I used examples to clearly explain the relevance of my visit  to at least one of the following: 1) emotion 2) human culture 3)  self-identity 4) cultural identity? 
  5. Have I used Learning Resources from the class and provided a list  of resources, and do all of my citations conform to MLA 8th edition  guidelines? 
  6. Have I proofread this assignment for grammatical, structural, and spelling errors?
