ANT 101 Week 1 DQ 1 Cultural Relativism

Cultural Relativism. Cultural relativism asserts that every culture has its own set of customs and beliefs, and
that culture must be understood by the standards and values of the people within that culture.
Anthropologists think that things that might seem cruel or irrational in our own culture must be seen through
the lens of cultural relativity, and that all cultures have practices or beliefs that can be seen by others as
repugnant or incomprehensible.

After reading the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights, explain whether you think that cultural relativism can
coexist with the idea of universal human rights. Is it possible for anthropologists to promote human rights
without imposing, for example, their own Western values and ideas of human rights?

ANT 101 Week 1 DQ 2 Studying Culture
Studying Culture. Choose one of the “Consider This” boxes that Nowak and Laird present us with in Chapters
1 and 2 of Cultural Anthropology, or discuss the topics below from the film Margaret Mead: Coming of Age,
available in the Films On Demand database, in the Ashford Online Library.
The topics covered are:
a. Whether the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights should be applicable to all cultures
b. Whether it is possible to truly view a culture without being influenced by the cultural constructs of our own
culture
c. How our understanding of what it means to be a patient in the United States reflects our different cultural
backgrounds and affiliations
d. In the film Margaret Mead: Coming of Age, it is mentioned that Mead’s initial research was criticized on
methodological grounds. Why was that? Do you consider the criticism warranted or not warranted? What
could she have done differently?
e. Based on the film and the book, discuss the challenges of field work. What do you think would be the most
difficult? What has changed since the time of Mead?
Clearly identify the topic you choose at the outset of your discussion, and answer all aspects of it thoroughly.
Your answer should contain a balance of descriptive detail and cultural analysis. Build on the ideas and
terminology in the text and your own ideas to support your answers. Include examples or information from
the film in any question answer as you see fit. Your initial response should be at least 150 words in length.

ANT 101 Week 2 Critical Thinking Paper Kinship Organizations

Critical Thinking Paper – Kinship Organizations. Kinship systems in Foraging and Horticultural based societies provide support for
people in all stages of their life. Address the following in a two- to three-page paper:
1. Identify and describe the kinship system of one of the cultures listed below. These cultures are found in Chapters 3 and 4 of
Cultural Anthropology.
a.Australian Aborigines
b.Btsisi
c.Inuit of the Artic
d.Iroquois
e.San
f.Yanomamo
2. Briefly describe the culture and identify three specific examples of how the kinship system of the chosen culture impacts the
way this culture behaves (i.e. thinks, acts, lives).
3. Compare this to your own society. Does kinship impact these same behaviors in your own life? Why or why not?
Your paper must be in APA format. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within
the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar, in your online course.

ANT 101 Week 2 DQ 2 Economic Concerns

Economic Concerns. You have two choices for this discussion.
1. Choose one of the following questions raised by Nowak and Laird in their “Consider This” boxes, in Chapter 4, of Cultural
Anthropology. Be sure to indicate at the outset which question you are answering. Read the original question and relevant
information in Chapter 4 before answering the question you choose. Your answer should give clear examples, include crosscultural comparison, and demonstrate critical thinking and analysis. Build on the ideas and terminology in the text and your own
ideas to support your answers.
a. What is the traditional sexual division of labor in American culture? Is it undergoing a transformation? Among Btsisi’, women
and men are respected for the tasks they perform. Do you think this is the case in the United States?

b. How does the location of your home, and the concentration of the population within a particular area, relate to your mode of
production? Has this changed in our North American culture over time? Can you predict a time when, as a society, where we live
will not be dictated by our modes of production?
c. Kinship systems in horticultural-based societies provide support for people in all stages of life. With the current mobility of
global populations we find ourselves increasingly geographically distant from parents and grandparents. How do we as members
of a highly mobile and diverse society compensate for the lack of accessible kin?
2. Now that you have learned about different types of reciprocity, watch Video Reciprocity and answer the following question
about web reciprocity: To what extent are they similar to and different from the examples on reciprocity given in Chapter 4?
Use terms and examples from the discussion on reciprocity in Chapter 4 to critically evaluate the various perspectives on
reciprocity highlighted in the video. Give your own opinion about the principles of reciprocity that should guide web interactions
in general and video channel interactions in particular.
Your initial response should be at least 150 words in length. Please support your claims with examples from the text, required
and recommended material, and/or scholarly articles.

ANT 101 Week 3 DQ 1 Social Organization
Social Organization. Watch Blood Bonds, available in the Films On Demand database, in the Ashford Online Library. Describe the
correlation between arranged marriage, economic exchanges surrounding marriage (bridewealth, bride service, dowry, etc.),
status of women, family pressures, and other factors you can think of and the stability of marriage. Based on your reading of the
textbook and the film, what are the disadvantages of different forms of marriages? Do you think they can be as successful as
marriages of choice? Which form of marriage do you have the hardest time understanding?
Reflect on marriage and divorce in current North American societies. What factors contribute to the stability of marriages in our
culture? What factors contribute to stability of marriage in the cultures shown in the film? And lastly, what factors of the cultures
in the film could contribute to the stability of marriage in our culture? And vise versa? Your initial response should be at least
150 words in length. Please support your claims with examples from the required resources.

ANT 101 Week 3 DQ 2 Doing Business with Family

Doing Business with Family. Nowak and Laird’s Applying Anthropology 6.2 box, in Cultural Anthropology, proposes the following
question:
The familiar saying “never do business with family” advises against the practices used in many of the chiefdom societies
discussed in this chapter. This old saying implies that doing business with family will create conflict, whereas chiefdom societies
welcome and encourage such close-knit economic exchanges as a way of preventing conflict. In fact, in an interesting article on
family businesses, Bertrand and Schoar comment on how cultures based on strong family ties can have a negative impact on
economic development. The reasoning is that the more we are taught to count on our kinship and family ties, the less likely we
are to trust those outside our family networks, which greatly prohibits the development of larger economic institutions…
Consider both examples and create an argument for or against mixing business with family. When responding to this question,
be sure to engage in cross-cultural comparison, taking into consideration variation in subsistence systems, descent systems,
mobility, and any other factors you consider pertinent. Draw examples from the ethnographic record, your own experience, and
the experience of others with whom you are familiar. Your initial response should be at least 150 words in length. Please support
your claims with examples from the text, recommended material, and/or scholarly articles.

Monumental Architecture. What does monumental architecture imply about the cultural values and the socio-economic-political
organization of the society that created it? Do a bit of Internet research on religious or secular monuments, statues, and
architectural wonders in your city, state, country, or internationally. Choose a monument (or set of monuments), describe its

image of the monument itself for the rest of us to see. Bring in what you have read on leadership and political and religious
organization in band, tribes, and states up to now in developing your answer. Build on the ideas and terminology in the text and
your own ideas to support your claims.
Your initial response should be at least 150 words in length.

ANT 101 Week 4 DQ 2 Economy and Colonialism
Economy and Colonialism. Relate what you have read in Chapter 8, of Cultural Anthropology, regarding colonialism and the
expansion of capitalism in modern industrial societies to the article, “Marketers Pursue the Shallow Pocketed.” Is the information
being discussed in this article another example of colonialism? Why or why not? Identify two potential positives and two
negatives direct marketing of the poor has on people and their economies. What theory of development is most applicable to the
expansion of global markets to poor, low income, and indigenous communities? Your initial response should be at least 150
words in length. Please support your claims with examples from the text, required material, and/or scholarly articles.

controversy. Where do you stand on the issue regarding the use of anthropologists in intelligence gathering for the military? Can
you come up with a compelling argument based on examples given in the text, your understanding of the ethical requirements
of anthropologist, and from your own experiences /understanding of past and present military actions to take a stance on this
issue? Please use concepts and terminology from the text.
Your initial response should be at least 150 words in length.
