Anthropology April 5 Lecture
Slide: How do anthropologistsadd value”?
Women who talked about how anthropologists add value.
Anthropologists have different perspectives and have a way of solving problems in a way
that other people can’t.
Anthropologists can solve problems in 3 different directions:
1) What anthropologist talk about human behaviour (like why people eat chocolate bars)
2) Anthropologists concept, our method of analysis (like why people buy chocolate bars)
3) Why do people do what they do? They can see cross-sectional decisions (cross cultural
scenariosthis can be in business and other companies)
Public vs. Private: Ex. of the difference between landline and mobile phone. In Czech
Republic they didn’t like mobile phones because they said they weren’t private like
mobile phones. So anthropologist figured out ways to solve these problems. They solved
problem of the mobile phones by saying how it can be private like you can take it
anywhere even in your room.
Slide: Some examples
Just showing examples of what you could do with an anthropology degree
Slide: Katrina and its double
Just talking about the article on Katrina.
Marginalized communities living in the neighbourhood must likely to be sunk. (Most on
social assistance)
The people in New Orleans were very poor, some didn’t have cars, some didn’t have
internet access, some didn’t have supply. Some couldn’t even leave because they would
lose their job if they did. So it wasn’t that these people were stubborn and didn’t want to
leave it was that they didn’t have the resources to go. Race also interplays in this article
because Disproportionally African Americans left mind to suffer themselves.
Slide: Katrina’s and itsdoubles
Slide: Katrina’s and its doubles
New Orleans is quite poor and it feels like being in Mexico/Caribbean when your there. It
doesn’t feel like you’re in the U.S.
Slide: How can anthropology help us to understand social networking?
Now talking about Facebook article.
Talks about different kinds of parson hood. Individual personhood vs. personhood.
Esp. in N.A. we think about what makes a person itself. What groups your part of, the
things we do.
Dividualspeople that can be divided into parts
Ex. of what it means to be a partable person.
Slide: Partible personhood on Facebook?
Men who are bigger socially because they are connected to more people. (in parts of
malanaysia)
Mokaexchange gathering where you gather all your stuff and show what you have. ‘the
way you give that stuff you have to get that stuff. So the stuff you give shows how many
people you interact with/have relationships with.
To get a pig to big boars in south takes an enormous amount of labour.
