BADM 101-15: Culture at Work: The Anthropology of Business

Professor Daniela Brancaforte


Final Paper & Presentation 20% (Paper Length: 6 – 8 pages, double-spaced; 1500 - 2000 words)

You will write a final paper that can be in the form of a Research Paper or White Paper expanding on a topic that came up in our readings or discussions throughout the class and that you found particularly meaningful. You may also pick a topic that we did not discuss in class but has relevance to the overall subject of anthropology and business, culture and work. This is your chance to explore and write about a topic that interests you in more depth.

You may want to build on the previous assignments from the Informational Interview, Observational Fieldwork, Persuasive (Op-Ed) and Critical Reflection essays and Social Impact Consulting Project that you have been working on throughout the semester. I ask that you incorporate at least 3 relevant readings from the class as well as a minimum of 3 additional references and provide a bibliography.

You will present the final paper topic during the last week of class and field questions as well as receive input from your peers. I will also meet with each of you individually in the latter part of the semester to discuss your paper topics with you.
