Description

In the class, I asked my students that “how does the increasing degree of urbanization change the next generation’s view on localized cultural identity? And how should we as anthropologists collaborate with the community?”

In the class, I discussed on the concept of urban life and then I asked the students to think about the ways in which they all could engage with Taungthaman Village to understand the impact of urban life.

The next weekend, my students and I went to Taungthaman to interact with and train the school children. Before the students went to field site on the weekend, they had a brainstorming session to list ideas that would encourage the school children to become more aware of their culture and more conscious of their cultural heritage.
