  Cultural anthropology reading: Enculturation and Acculturation
We may define enculturation as the process by which individuals acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values that enable them to become functioning members of their societies.
The enculturation process has two major aspects: (1) the informal, which some call "child training" and in some senses precedes and in other senses runs concurrently with (2) the formal, more commonly termed "education." The former is most likely to be carried out within the context of the family and among friends.
As the foundation for enculturation is positive reinforcement, the foundation for the acculturative process is the functional equivalent.

Enculturation is defined as the process of internalizing the mental, physical and social behavior patterns of the surrounding culture.
Enculturation is an entry to exit (lifelong) process of learning to identify oneself with the unitary culture.
It is the human character to rebel against any autocratic concepts, hence the idea of unitary culture and its enculturation should be made as egalitarian as possible and then employed to the letter and spirit to produce the desirable effect of a world at peace with itself.

 The 1995 Cognitive Science Conference Paper Submission Format
Enculturation into the authentic practices of a field operates not just on the mind, but on the social and material body by means of which we are grounded in the world (Bourdieu, 1992, 1997).
Enculturation is coincident with the formation of a specific habitus, a set of dispositions that structure perceptions of and actions toward the world, but are themselves structured by the experience in the world.
It is the enculturation to such a view of the world that most of the field ecologists objected while at the same time not questioning their own sets of assumptions.

Enculturation is the process by which the values and norms of a society are passed on to or acquired by its members.
Two phases of enculturation, according to him, can be distinguished: the "unconscious" stage of early years in human growth, where the individual "unconsciously" internalizes his culture; the "conscious" stage of later years, which involves innovations initiated by individuals.
It is proposed that enculturation be defined as a construct, and a process in a behavioral sense, that delineates transmission and transmutation of culture throughout human growth.

 Conference paper
According to Bishop enculturation can not be done by one person to another, culture is not a ‘thing’ which is transmitted from one person to another, nor is the learner merely a passive recipient of culture from the Enculturator.
Enculturation is an interpersonal process and therefore it is an interactive process between the teacher and the taught.
Since mathematical enculturation is an intentional, shaping process, the teacher’s task is to create a particular kind of social environment for the learner and it is the learner’s task to construct ideas and modify them in interaction with that environment.

 Part II The Novice Mathematician's Encounter With Mathematical Abstraction as an Enculturation Process
Tension in the interaction between novice and expert is generated when the difference in their facility to formalise is exposed: while the expert and the novices may agree about the method of approaching a problem, they seem to differ in terms of the implementation of the approach.
Another necessary aspect of the enculturation process seems to be reconciliation between intuitive mathematical practices as a way to gain mathematical insight and formal mathematical language as a way to refine and establish these insights rigorously.
The expert's enculturating role then is elevated from the strictly mathematically-topical to the meta-topical, to demystifying not only particular proofs and solutions but also the rules of the game.

 [No title]
The paper focuses on the enculturation of two of the teachers whose experiences demonstrate the often complex interplay of biographical and contextual factors involved in beginning teacher enculturation.
The central purpose of the paper is to illustrate the limitations of two contrasting conceptual frameworks of beginning teacher enculturation and to argue that an interactionist model is better able to account for the enculturation processes evidenced in the two teachers.
The enculturation of both Laura and Louise was strongly influenced by anticipatory socialisation stemming from their own school days, as evidenced by their attempts to visualise how former, admired teachers would have attempted to solve specific problems which faced them.

 Incomplete Enculturation: The Role of Hearing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)

 Dr U.E. Umorem - Enculturation and Inculturation: The Gospel of Liberation and the Culture of African Womanhood
She says enculturation is "the process of learning a culture in all its uniqueness and particularity".
These categories constitute the context of enculturation, that is, the context of the process of the African woman being taught and she herself learning both consciously and unconsciously the derogatory-positive components of life in the culture of African womanhood.
We affirm that just as enculturation served the purposes of learning, teaching and passing on the contents of the culture of African women in bondage, enculturation is now to be used for learning and perpetuating the culture of the African women as liberated and developing.

Often referred to as "enculturation", the idea is that not only is your social gender role a matter of sociology, but your inner gender identity is as well.
Enculturation theory is an important part of many branches of modern feminist thought and, if true, enculturation theory has a number of exceedingly important and wide-ranging implications.
Unfortunately for enculturation proponents, there is a rather major problem with the theory, one they are generally either ignorant of or choose to ignore for convenience sake.

This ethical enculturation is evidenced by the inclusion of ethics in the curriculum, the articulated conceptual framework, the classroom environment, the interactions between and among faculty and students, and nursing faculty and students’ interactions with patients.

Such general enculturation, found in every society, remained in the middle ages, whether in the hands of the master teaching his apprentice, the knight his squire, or the peasant mother her children.
Whereas in Plato's Athens, so to speak, the city had primarily been the enculturating institution and the Academy the institution of cultural criticism, now the two were tied together, and, as it turns out, this was to remain to the present.
Enculturation is, after all, but one of the issues, and most people are going to see not only their now diminished role as not simply a sign of loss of power but in some sense as the victory of untruth.

 Teaching Thinking Dispositions: From Transmission to Enculturation
Based on the enculturation model, you decide to organize your teaching and classroom so that students are (1) exposed to exemplars of metacognition, (2) have opportunities to interact with one another around metacognitive practices and activities, and (3) receive direct instruction in metacognitive attitudes and techniques.
The purpose of an enculturation model of teaching is to provide guidelines for creating a culture of thinking in the classroom that promotes, from all quarters, the development of good thinking dispositions.
The enculturation model focuses on three key aspects of culture-building: exemplars, which concern the models of thinking that are present in the learning environment; interaction, which concerns the tenor and content of relations among members of the classroom; and direct instruction, which concerns the direct teaching of culturally important concepts, activities and skills.

 Perspective - Mosaic "Eggs"
Ronald Taft in his essay The Role and Personality of the Mediator defines enculturation as the process where "a person acquires the specific knowledge and skills that are required to live in that culture."(p.62) Enculturation, however, is a very general term.
Different combinations of primary and secondary cultures or a different level of attachment to the birth culture are bound to produce different degrees of secondary enculturation and thus a different pattern of cultural mosaicism that is completely relative to the individual.
This idea of individual relativism is precisely echoed in Bochner's essay The Social Psychology of Cultural Mediation of cultural-learning in the light of becoming a cultural mediator, where multiple cultural factors of the individual affect his or her effectiveness to bridge two cultures.
