Anthropology.

Description Each of the following questions is worth 20 points. In order to earn 20 points, you will need to completely answer the question(s) in grammatically correct English. You will want to write at least 3-4 paragraphs per question. Of course, I want you to think on your own. However, our thinking develops out of reading, discussion, lecture, and experience. When someone (like a professor) asks you how you know or how you came to a specific understanding, you should be able to point them in the direction that your learning took. Remember that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Exams should not be stressful, worrisome, nor anxiety building exercises. Exams should be exercises in learning. You can and should ask questions if you become stumped. You should not be asking questions of the internet/Wikipedia. You should be asking each other and the professor. All answers should be in grammatically correct English. Again, you should avoid the words ‘it, this, that, thing’ or any of their derivatives. Review the documents uploaded to the course site “How not to get an A” and “Student perspective”. Good luck and may the force be with you! 1) Anthropology and anthropologists engage in a myriad of manners of studying the human condition. With this idea in mind, what is the meaning of being an anthropologist? In your answer, please discuss about fedual anthropology, capitalism, agriculture, and hunter gatherers and what each does well and the challenges faced by each. 2) What are the 4 modes of production we have discussed in class? What are the corresponding forms of religion? Now, choose a mode of production; identify a cultural group that functioned/functions under that mode of production; describe their religion; and provide an argument as to why this religious practice is the only possible religious practice in which this group of people might engage. 3) Choose a creation myth from any culture in which you might be interested. Briefly summarize the creation myth. Then, using cultural materialism; structural-functionalism; and symbolics create an analysis of the creation myth. (You might focus on how the creation myth incorporates important qualities of the natural environment; you might focus on how the myth describes the relationship between humans and the divine/natural environment/each other; etc).
