Strangers in this World Open Access

This thesis concerns three Amish families living in Shipshewana Indiana. This is an exploration of the idea that while they work to remain true to their roots, the identity of members of this Amish community is changing due to internal and external pressures. This project adds to the social documentary tradition by increasing discourse surrounding this culture that is often stereotyped. The final product is presented in a short documentary, including original video, photographs, and audio. Additionally, there is a community engagement component, which prompts Amish and non-Amish alike to question their understanding of this culture. This is a significant undertaking because it explores a culture whose representation is often extremely polarized, whether through misrepresentation or stereotypes.
