Defamiliarization and an examination of the means by which students refamiliarize themselves are the goals of this two part experiential exercise that seeks to engage and illuminate the implicit culture-bound categories informing the classroom experience of an introductory course in anthropology. The exercise is designed to take place outside the classroom and is modeled on the contributions of Simmel and others, especially the notion of the looking-glass self as developed by Cooley.
