Andhra Culture

Create a typed transcript of the following interview (made up of course). The longer the answers, the better.

The interviewer is me, a Filipino female, 35 years old living in San Francisco, California.

The person I’m interviewing is, my “brother-in-law” from the Andhra Culture whom immigrated to the United States 5 years ago. Please reference the attachment, “Initial Draft” as a source for this interview.

When conducting the interview, ask the interviewee at least six questions from this list (in addition to at least three questions you create specifically for your interviewee):

  • How far back in time can the person remember? What is your interviewee’s first childhood memory? (Consider how it reflects the interview subject’s culture or subculture?)
  • What does the person remember of the experience of being an immigrant or a subgroup member in that time?
  • Which impressions or experiences from that time are most vivid to your interviewee today?
  • If your interviewee immigrated to this country, what was the country of origin like in terms of geography, government, transportation, economic system, and education system? If your interviewee was raised in this country, what were these aspects of life like during childhood?
  • What does the person recall of the communication with members of the dominant culture? What barriers to effective communication did your interviewee encounter?
  • In the United States today, what is different about your interviewee’s life in terms of language, religion, family customs, diet, recreation, and work, as compared to childhood?
  • What role did the news media play in the interview subject’s life and in supporting or contesting the views of the interview subject’s culture? How did the media influence the subject’s individual beliefs and opinions about males and females, masculinity and femininity, and other aspects of gender belief systems and views about race and ethnicity? (Cite specific examples given to you regarding these two specific issues.)
  • If your interview subject spoke a different native language, ask your interviewee to discuss differences between that language and English (consider the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis).
  • What are some of the most significant differences in day-to-day life in the past versus today?

Create a report of the oral history interview that you conducted. To create this report, review your written transcript of the interview and any notes you took during it, and write a 1,500- to 2,000-word paper (excluding the title and references pages), in which you discuss aspects of this person’s culture and/or subcultures and communication issues related to your interviewee’s cultural identity by answering these questions in paragraph form:

  • Define the concept of intercultural communication.
  • Explain what can be learned about intercultural communication by conducting an oral interview.
  • Identify the name of the person (Raj Shiva) you interviewed and their relationship to you (brother in law)
  • Create a thesis statement that previews the conclusions you reached as a result of conducting this interview.
  • Describe the interview subject’s cultural background and the culture and/or subcultures to which your subject belongs. (Reference ‘Initial Draft’ attachment)
  • Analyze the interview subject’s answers to each of the questions you asked during your interview to connect the concepts covered in this course (do not simply provide a transcript of the interview subject’s answers). (Reference the list of questions that’s highlighted above)
  • Conclude what you learned about intercultural communication as a result of conducting this oral history interview.
