How do anthropologistsadd value”?
Solving three kinds of “problems
Behaviour: heres what do people do (ethnography)
Concepts: Heres what it means (analysis)
Culture: Heres why they do it (theory)
What else can you “do” as an anthropologist: They work in public health, government, health,
clinical research, research
Katrina and its doubles: by Nancy Sheper-Hughs
She realized that sometimes it is important for anthropologists to step in and do
something
She was trying to figure out what we can understand about the U.S and the equality
differences with Katrina
A lot of people were left behind to suffer; lots of people died on starvation rather than the
flood
Explanations: blaming the victims (people left behind and some who died), why didnt
they leave and why are they killing each other
Most of the buildings were only built to withstand a level 4 hurricane but Katrina was 5,
and the only people who were in that neighbourhood were poor people and places with
African American
People couldnt leave (she pointed out that the only people who left was people with jobs
that were allowed to leave, people with cars and money) and the people who were poor
didnt have anywhere to go and no money to leave or had jobs that they couldnt leave
behind (if you leave, you will be fired)
The hurricane was a natural disaster but itsdoubles were not
Some people who were trying to leave were held at gun point by police officers or were
turned back because they dont want that part of the society to turn poor and black
neighbourhood
