Description
Questioning Anthropology 11/27/2012 Everything came into question at this time “The Remaking of Social Analysis” What is Rosaldo’s critique of conventional anthropological approaches to death? What is he proposing to  do instead? We shouldn’t reject our own personal experiences with our emotions Just observing a culture wasn’t allowing him to understand their grief Intense emotions need to be included as an object of anthropological studies Rather than detached observer, should include their own experiences, take seriously the aspects of the  emotion  Move anthropology from study of “ritual” as process to study that can include intensity of emotions, “force” Real science of anthropology has to include the subjective, the ethnographers own perspectives and  objectives Why did he tell us the story of his wife? You can include your own personal experiences Knowing who your ethnographer is will show you what you can access “positioned substance” before, he didn’t get it; didn’t have the experience of great grief wasn’t until it happened that he was transformed through his own experience that he was able to get  another level of ethnographic insight Discuss what Rosaldo means by “force” and come up with some examples where you could focus on  “force”.  Depth vs. force Initial reaction of human: emotions that exist in all humans that we need to understand Raw instinctive connection that comes from certain reaction
