    Need a bit of help with something

    i think its fantastic you've tried to steer away from the typical topics chosen, but i have to admit, this will be a tricky one. however, it does fit into the S&C concepts as magician (or witches) was a stereotype, if you, like, in primitive times.

    overdone pip ideas

    depression and mental disorders are really prominent and definitely overdone, but thats not to say that the people who do these topics get a bad mark for their PIP. It really depends on what angle you take on it and how you've written it.

    2 cross-cultural components?

    yeh, i agree wif noir. u should only have one major one in your PIP but you can always make casual reference to the other one if it assists in discussing your topic. however, if you don't NEED two, you shouldn't really do two cos it really will get difficult. e.g. in my PIP, i'm doing rites of...

    Just an extension on my previous question then... do you think that because a rite of passage is described as a "rite" that the event can be identified by a particular ritual or tradition... or can a rite of passage be informal? please feel free to give reasons! thanks again guys!
