ANT 101 Week 1 DQ 1 Cultural Relativism (Ash
course)
  • For more course tutorials visit
  • www.uophelp.com
  •  
  • Cultural Relativism. Cultural Anthropology gives
    three distinct meanings of cultural relativism a
    moral stance that requires anthropologists to
    suspend moral and ethical judgments when
    interacting with a culture different from their
    own, a methodological strategy that allows the
    anthropologist to pay specific attention to the
    uniqueness of a culture, and an epistemological
    position that cultures are unique and therefore
    knowledge about different cultures is almost
    inherently not comparable. (Sec. 1.3).
  • In your forum contribution
  • a. Discuss what you see as the strengths and
    weaknesses of each of these three kinds of
    relativism.
  • b. Identify one belief or practice in another
    culture that you find puzzling, strange, or
    troubling, and then discuss the extent that
    cultural relativism is a useful approach to
    understanding and interacting with the people who
    hold it.

ANT 101 Week 1 DQ 2 Studying Culture (Ash course)
  • For more course tutorials visit
  • www.uophelp.com
  •  
  • Studying Culture. Choose one of the "Consider
    This" boxes that Nowak and Laird present us with
    in Chapters 1 and 2 of Cultural Anthropology, or
    discuss the topics below from the film Margaret
    Mead Coming of Age, available in the Films On
    Demand database, in the Ashford Online Library.
  • The topics covered are
  • a. Whether the UN's Universal Declaration of
    Human Rights should be applicable to all cultures
  • b. Whether it is possible to truly view a culture
    without being influenced by the cultural
    constructs of our own culture

ANT 101 Week 2 Critical Thinking Paper Kinship
Organizations (Ash course)
  • For more course tutorials visit
  • www.uophelp.com
  •  
  • Assignments
  • 1. Due by Day 7. Critical Thinking Paper
    Kinship Organizations. Kinship systems in
    Foraging and Horticultural based societies
    provide support for people in all stages of their
    life. Address the following in a two- to
    three-page paper
  • a. Identify and describe the kinship system of
    one of the cultures listed below. These cultures
    are found in Chapters 3 and 4 of Cultural
    Anthropology.
  • Australian Aborigines
  • Btsisi
  • Inuit of the Artic
  • Iroquois
  •  
  •

ANT 101 Week 2 DQ 1 Foraging Societies (Ash
course)
  • For more course tutorials visit
  • www.uophelp.com
  •  
  • Foraging Societies. Answer one of the following
    four questions posed by Nowak and Laird, in
    Cultural Anthropology, at the very end of Chapter
    3
  • a. What can we learn from studying foraging
    societies? Is there anything we can learn
    regarding our relationship to the environment, or
    our family members, for example?
  • b. What is the ethnographic present? Do you think
    that the use of the ethnographic present in the
    film The Gods Must Be Crazy is appropriate, or do
    you think Lee's criticisms are valid?
  • c. Do you think the view of many anthropologists
    (pre1970s) that men's hunting activities are
    more highly valued than women's gathering
    activities is a culturally biased perspective
    based on Eurocentric notions that men are the
    family "breadwinners"? Do you think this view is
    outdated (based both on more recent ethnographic
    information and changes in American culture)?

ANT 101 Week 2 DQ 2 Economic Concerns (Ash course)
  • For more course tutorials visit
  • www.uophelp.com
  •  
  • Economic Concerns. You have two choices for this
    discussion.
  • a. Choose one of the following questions raised
    by Nowak and Laird in their "Consider This"
    boxes, in Chapter 4, of Cultural Anthropology. Be
    sure to indicate at the outset which question you
    are answering. Read the original question and
    relevant information in Chapter 4 before
    answering the question you choose. Your answer
    should give clear examples, include
    cross-cultural comparison, and demonstrate
    critical thinking and analysis. Build on the
    ideas and terminology in the text and your own
    ideas to support your answers.
  • i. What is the traditional sexual division of
    labor in American culture? Is it undergoing a
    transformation? Among Btsisi, women and men are
    respected for the tasks they perform. Do you
    think this is the case in the United States?
  • ii. How does the location of your home, and the
    concentration of the population within a
    particular area, relate to your mode of
    production? Has this changed in our North
    American culture over time? Can you predict a
    time when, as a society, where we live will not
    be dictated by our modes of production?

ANT 101 Week 3 DQ 1 Social Organization (Ash
course)
  • For more course tutorials visit
  • www.uophelp.com
  •  
  • Social Organization. Watch Blood Bonds, available
    in the Films On Demand database, in the Ashford
    Online Library. Describe the correlation between
    arranged marriage, economic exchanges surrounding
    marriage (bridewealth, bride service, dowry,
    etc.), status of women, family pressures, and
    other factors you can think of and the stability
    of marriage. Based on your reading of the
    textbook and the film, what are the disadvantages
    of different forms of marriages? Do you think
    they can be as successful as marriages of choice?
    Which form of marriage do you have the hardest
    time understanding?

ANT 101 Week 3 DQ 2 Doing Business with Family
(Ash course)
  • For more course tutorials visit
  • www.uophelp.com
  •  
  • Doing Business with Family. Nowak and Laird's
    Applying Anthropology 6.2 box, in Cultural
    Anthropology, proposes the following question
  • The familiar saying never do business with
    family advises against the practices used in
    many of the chiefdom societies discussed in this
    chapter. This old saying implies that doing
    business with family will create conflict,
    whereas chiefdom societies welcome and encourage
    such close-knit economic exchanges as a way of
    preventing conflict. In fact, in an interesting
    article on family businesses, Bertrand and Schoar
    comment on how cultures based on strong family
    ties can have a negative impact on economic
    development. The reasoning is that the more we
    are taught to count on our kinship and family
    ties, the less likely we are to trust those
    outside our family networks, which greatly
    prohibits the development of larger economic
    institutions...

ANT 101 Week 4 DQ 1 Monumental Architecture (Ash
course)
  • For more course tutorials visit
  • www.uophelp.com
  •  
  • Monumental Architecture. What does monumental
    architecture imply about the cultural values and
    the socio-economic-political organization of the
    society that created it?
  • Do a bit of Internet research on religious or
    secular monuments, statues, and architectural
    wonders in your city, state, country, or
    internationally. Choose a monument (or set of
    monuments), describe its main features, discuss
    any symbolism it has, and analyze the messages it
    sends to its intended audience(s). Provide a link
    to an image of the monument itself for the rest
    of us to see.

ANT 101 Week 4 DQ 2 Economy and Colonialism (Ash
course)
  • For more course tutorials visit

  •  
  • Economy and Colonialism. Relate what you have
    read in Chapter 8, of Cultural Anthropology,
    regarding colonialism and the expansion of
    capitalism in modern industrial societies to the
    article, Marketers Pursue the Shallow Pocketed.
    Is the information being discussed in this
    article another example of colonialism? Why or
    why not? Identify two potential positives and two
    negatives direct marketing of the poor has on
    people and their economies. What theory of
    development is most applicable to the expansion
    of global markets to poor, low income, and
    indigenous communities?

ANT 101 Week 5 Final Cultural Research Paper (Ash
course)
  • For more course tutorials visit
  • www.uophelp.com
  •  
  • Focus of the Research Paper
  • Throughout this course, we have learned that the
    primary mode of subsistence (how a culture makes
    a living) impacts many other aspects of cultural
    behavior and has been an effective way to
    organize thoughts and studies about culture. In
    order to demonstrate your understanding of
    subsistence modes and its impact on a culture and
    why a culture acts as it does, your Research
    Paper will require you to
  • 1. Select a specific culture from the following
    list
  • a. Basseri of Iran
  • b. The Batek of Malaysia
