A reflection on the project by group member, Chumin Wu, supplements this podcast.


This podcast is the result of a group ethnography assignment for Anthropology 103 at Parkland College seeking to determine Parkland students' views on politics. Using interviews surveys, the group found that, while nearly all approached voted in elections, only two-thirds followed politics, suggesting that while participation in the system was high, the level of knowledge and confidence was rather low.
