Imagine you are going on a 6-month expedition to a foreign country to experience the diversity of this country and study the effect of prejudice and discrimination within this country. While you are there, you journal your experiences and then write an article that will be published in a travel magazine.
Choose a foreign country in which there has been well-documented instances of discrimination against certain races or cultures such as:
India: the Dalits and Adivasis
Bosnia: the Muslims and Croats
South Africa: the Coloureds or Black Africans
Indonesia: the Chinese
Rwanda: the Batwa
You can choose from the above list or you may submit a request to the instructor to research another country. Submit your request by Day 4.
Write a 600- to 800 -word article with a focus on the effect of prejudice and discrimination on various cultures within the country you have chosen to visit. Cite 2 or more sources; at least two must come from the UOPX Library. Try search terms such as â€œcultures in (country),â€ â€œdiscrimination in (country),â€ â€œethnic groups in (country),â€ etc. You may also refer to the Recommended Websites list in the Electronic Resources section at the beginning of this syllabus for additional sources.
Note: Sources other than those from the UOPX Library or the Recommended Websites list must be approved by the instructor.
Include the following in your article:
A description of the various cultures as well as the races and ethnicities that exist within this country
A clear differentiation between race and ethnicity
