You have two choices for this discussion.
a. 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 cross-cultural comparison, and demonstrate critical thinking and
analysis. Build on the ideas and terminology in the text and your own ideas to support your
i. 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?
ii. 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?
iii. 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?
b. 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. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
