About once a day assignments

News Watchdog

Pick a news website or several local blogs and visit the sites every day. Look for an article that relates to less visible aspects of your identity such as religious identity, national identity, sexual identity or generational identity. When you find one, copy the link, return to Experimonth on Science Buzz and paste the link to the article into an new comment box on the "News Watchdog" Buzz page.

About once a week assignments

Mistaken Identity

Note when you are a victim, observer or guilty of mistaken identity (e.g. mistaking someone's religious, gender, sexual, or ethnic identity) and write about it on the "Mistaken Identity" Buzz blog.


Without actually photographing yourself, document your identity in photos. Take pictures of your clothes, personal objects, people you associate with, and/or the places you visit-- anything that you think represents your identity. Post one or two photos a week to the "Snapshot" Buzz blog.

About once a month assignments

Cultural Plunge

Visit a place you've never visited before because you feel you don't belong and document your experience (e.g. narrative, photo essay, video, an original art piece, etc.) and post it on the Cultural Plunge Buzz blog.
