Book/Film Interpretation Project InstructionsYou will need to obtain and read a book or view a film, in order to begin this project. You should, therefore, get started on it as soon as possible.A Note about CultureThis project asks you to use a novel or film as a window into the culture of a Spanish-speaking country. By the culture, we are referring to the learned behaviors, everyday practices, customs, worldviews, and beliefs of a group of people. In this broad anthropological sense, the culture of a group (Mexicans, Aymara, Spaniards, etc.) can include aspects such as family structures, interpersonal relations, gender, class and race relations, ways of communicating, body language, dress, arts, crafts, traditions, foodways, festivals, religion, economy and politics. Anthropologists who study the human condition define culture as the traditions and customs transmitted through learning that govern the beliefs and behavior of the people exposed to them.As you read the book or watch the film you select, pay particular attention to what is being revealed about the culture of that country or of that group of people. What you observe may or may not be directly related to the main plot or theme of the book or film. Aspects of culture may be revealed in the sections or passages that describe everyday life or set the scene for some action in the plot or story line.The AssignmentFor this project you will choose to analyze a film or book from the list below. With your instructor’s approval, however, you may also select a book or film not on this list. Write an analysis of the film’s/book’s contribution to the study of a Spanish-speaking culture. You can look at the book or film in its entirety, or you can focus on a particular chapter or scene if you prefer. Important: Your essay is not a summary of the book or film. You should analyze the book/film not for a plot or story line, but as a window into the culture.Use the following points to guide your essay:
1.What is the central issue(s) of the film/book?
2.What have you learned or observed about a Spanish-speaking culture from this book/film? (Think about interpersonal or family relationships, customs, religion, food, music, politics, economics, or any other cultural aspect that are discussed or portrayed in the book/film.)
