Cultural anthropology test 4

  1. 1. Cultural Anthropology Test 4 ! I would prefer if you sent this to me as a pdf if possible. No worries if you aren’t tech savvy enough to pull that off. (just another reason to own a Mac:) Regardless, please use your name and “Test 4” as the file name for your document. ! mike.e.berry@gmail.com ! ! Answer each questions in complete sentences on a separate sheet of paper/papers. ! 1. Choose a religious holiday with which you are familiar that has secular as well as religious aspects in its celebration. Briefly discuss, using examples of particular aspects of the holiday that are either religiously-based or non-religious, and if there are areas where these features may overlap. ! ! ! 2. What forms of body art are present in your society or community? What are some of the possible uses and meanings of this form of expression as you understand them? Briefly discuss one form of body art, making connections with what you learned from this chapter. ! ! ! ! 3. Sports and games are identified by the authors of the text as a category of the "arts," specifically as "cultural performances." Examine a sport or game with which you are familiar from perspectives you have gained from this chapter, in particular from Geertz's analysis of "deep play.” ! ! ! 4. Some would argue that colonialism has been replaced by other forms of exploitation, perhaps as equally insidious. Can you make some comparisons between underlying features of colonialism and the "global market economy"? Briefly discuss, in an essay of one or more paragraphs, the processes or structural aspects that appear to have some equivalence.
