cultural Anthropology

is the course if you don’t know anything about anthropology don’t write this.

Observe a conversation between two of your friends or family members – these two informants should be of different gender identities and/or sexual orientations. That could mean one heterosexual male and one heterosexual female or it could mean one transgender self-identified female and one heterosexual male or vice versa – you get what I am saying. The conversation should last at least 15 minutes. From an anthropological perspective, analyze the conversation that addresses the following research question – is there evidence in the language and communication styles of different genders to suggest cultural behaviors in the primary culture? That is, are there differences in the way different genders communicate that indicates one gender is dominate….

Fieldwork Observation

You will observe a social setting, record what you see, and offer an analysis of the location, context, event, and activities. This is an opportunity to actually practice what anthropologists do. Choose a public location to conduct a series of observations (lasting from 15-30min. each). Take fieldnotes to document what you see. Later you will compile your notes and write an essay analyzing the location and what people are doing. You can observe locations such as coffee shops, markets, libraries, museums, and restaurants. It is important that you choose to observe a location that you are relatively unfamiliar with—observing your roommates at home or your work environment is not acceptable.

Observing is hard but it is one of the key components of the ethnographic method. For this assignment,….

Historiography:Discuss the major scholarly works that will be explored in this paper, and identify which historiographical trend each should be affiliated with

Order instructions 

Submit a thesis statement for your historiography paper and an annotated bibliography that summarizes 8 to 10 secondary sources on the causes and effects of the Atomic Bomb dropping over Japan. Your thesis statement should be one to two sentences long and reflect your preliminary conclusions about the secondary literature about your topic. Each secondary source must be an authoritative, scholarly book or article that provides a clear interpretation of your topic. Each entry in your bibliography should include an annotation of one to two paragraphs. The annotation will describe the secondary source’s thesis, argument, or interpretation and explain why the source is significant to a historiographical essay on your topic. Instead of organizing the annotated bibliography by the author’s last name, as is the usual….

NISA: The Life and Words of a !Kung Woman: Marjorie Shostak’s ethnography, Nisa: The Life and Words of a !Kung Woman, is guided by the narrative of the stories of Nisa’s life. About her stories,

Marjorie Shostak’s ethnography, Nisa: The Life and Words of a !Kung Woman, is guided by the narrative of the stories of Nisa’s life. About her stories, Nisa tells Shostak, “I’ll tell you another one now. I’ll break open the story and tell you what is there. Then, like the others that have fallen out onto the sand, I will finish with it, and the wind will take it away.” (36)

In this course, we learn about the stories of many people of many different cultures. At first glance, some of their stories may seem completely different from the events of our own lives. Upon closer examination, we can find many themes that run through the lives of the !Kung also run through our own.

Another major theme of….
