Anthropology: The Political Functions of Supernatural Rituals; The Misunderstanding of Civilization; and, The Values of American Culture with Comments on the Distribution of Wealth and Public Education
[ send me this report ]
This is a 4 page paper discussing supernatural rituals and political power, misunderstanding and civilization, and individualism within American culture. Three central ideas within modern day anthropology are discussed, namely: the political functions of supernatural rituals; the misunderstanding of civilization; and, the core values of American culture in relation to the unequal distribution of wealth and the public education system. Supernatural rituals have a political function which can be twofold: those who are influential within the religious structure in society carry that power beyond the ritual itself; and, politically, those who wish the support of a large population within society can align themselves with a religious group. Misunderstanding and illusions for truth are part of the realizations of a young daughter in Barbara Kingsolver’s novel “The Poisonwood Bible” but these ideas are applied to anyone’s idea of his or her own civilization which becomes wholly dependent and built on one society but is inapplicable to another. Finally, the idea of “individualism” within the United States has become so profound that those who are wealthy within the U.S. (including the government itself) have done little for those who are less fortunate. This is well reflected in the high poverty rates in the country and the public school system which is unable to meet the basic needs of its citizens. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

Baker’s Sinhalese Village Study
[ send me this report ]
In A Singhalese Village in Sri Lanka: Coping with Uncertainty, Victoria J. Baker is making a case for how the people of Suduwatura Ara, an agrarian society of homesteaders cope with the uncertainty surrounding their lives. In pursuit of this subject, Baker looks at both the macro and micro environment, not only of the people, but also the researcher. She includes a discussion of her fieldwork in 1984-1985 and her return in 1994-1995, how she had to learn the customs and build a house to live in because of the poverty. Poverty is the main thrust of her argument in the case study concerning this particular group of Sinhalese, though her main thrust is how they cope with the persistent uncertainty of losing their homes and livelihoods. 1 work cited. jvSinhal.rtf

Bias in Jody Glittenberg's "To The Mountain and Back" and Dennis Werner's "Amazon Journey"?
[ send me this report ]
A 4 page discussion of the bias which is characteristic of much of anthropological research.
