Cultural Diversity Through Literary Art

Read the book The Color Purple by Alice Walker.

What insights into the culture described in the book did you get?

  1. Demonstrate knowledge of the differences and similarities among the cultures described in the course readings
  2. Demonstrate knowledge of gender in the quality of life for people in various cultures
  3. Demonstrate knowledge of the impact of modern values on people in various cultures

Through the use of representative and distinguished literature, this essay should aim to bring the reader a clearer sense of a variety of cultures, as well American sub-cultures and the “new” cultures impacting America. Scrutinize masterworks of whatever applies in the book such as, for example, any Latin, Asian, Islamic, African, and minority American culture, in order to go beyond mere cultural stereotypes or lack of knowledge to a reasonable understanding of the significant characteristics of these cultures, to determine what they are and how they are similar or differ from each other and the principal American culture of our times.
