For the Research part of your personal ethnography assignment, you will need to identify the history of your ethnic group and discuss different cultural elements from your culture of origin. You will research your ethnic group, identify your ethnic group’s indigenous/immigrant history, and determine which unique cultural characteristics or attributes set your group or culture apart from others.
Hale Library has a world-class collection of cookbooks. Most of them are kept in the University Archives and Special Collections area on 5th floor. You are welcome to go there and have cookbooks pulled for you to explore, but books from this area may not leave Hale Library. There are also cookbooks in Hale Library's stacks which are more accessible.
