Cultural Appropriation and Power Assignment | College Homework Help
Directions: First read the selection from Ziff and Rao’s “Introduction to Cultural Appropriation and Power”—make sure that you understand the “4 claims” critiquing cultural appropriation listed on the bottom of p. 8. Then watch the video (the link is below), and tell me what is being culturally appropriated in this commercial, and whether you think this is an example of acceptable or unacceptable cultural appropriation, and WHY. In your response, please apply any or all of Ziff and Rao’s 4 claims, as you see fit, to your analysis of cultural appropriation in this example. Your response should be at least one paragraph.
A synthesis essay:
Directions: After reading the selection from James Young’s Cultural Appropriation and the Arts, then watching the first 7 ½ minutes of The Grapevine podcast (in which the participants discuss the question of whether or not Bruno Mars is a cultural appropriator) and reading the short article by Travis Andrews discussing the different responses to the podcast, please respond to the three questions in the prompt below.
Prompt: On pp. 5-7 of Cultural Appropriation and the Arts James Young explains the different types of cultural appropriation of art. In your response, please do the following:
- Identify which type of cultural appropriation, as delineated by James Young (object, content, style, motif, and subject), people (like those on The Grapevine podcast) are accusing Bruno Mars of doing—and explain why you think it’s the type of cultural appropriation you identified.
- Justify whether you think the type of cultural appropriation Bruno Mars is accused of doing is objectionable or not. Do you agree with some of the speakers on The Grapevine podcast or some of the points of view offered in Travis Andrews’s article or not—and why?
- Offer YOUR own example of cultural appropriation (don’t pick one mentioned in Young’s text), identify which “type” of cultural appropriation (according to Young’s distinctions on pp. 5-7: object, content, style, motif, or subject) your example falls under, and analyze how and why you think your example of cultural appropriation is objectionable or not.
