In this assignment, each student will summarize crosscultural research findings in anthropology journals on ONE (1) health/illness related issue of interest to him/her and then describe how the articles contribute to a crosscultural understanding of the topic, comparing and contrasting the articles’ findings as appropriate. For example, if you or someone in your household had a cold; you would look for articles about colds or, more broadly, acute respiratory infections in different groups of people. Perhaps you or someone in your household is a vegetarian for healthrelated reasons; you would look for articles about vegetarianism, or more broadly, eating and health in crosscultural perspective, that is, in different groups of people. This doesn’t just mean different ethnic groups. People in the same family with the same ethnic heritage may have many different culturally constructed ideas about eating and health.
