Prompt: Answer each question (Total of 5) based on the articles given about 1-2 paragraphs each.
1. What is anthroposcene? How come is it related to (de)colonization? How can we think of Hastrup’s and Heather David’s readings?
2. Bring Yarimar Bonilla’s “The Coloniality of Disaster,” Zozan Pehlivan’s interview, and Tsing’s chapters in a dialogue. How can we re-evaluate destruction of the nature, especially in the global south and the historically oppressed peoples.
3. Inequality is common theme among almost all the readings we had throughout semester. From Deloria Jr. to Ishmael, to Abu Lughod and Roseberry, and the readings on colonialism and power. How can we think of inequality at the very center of what we tend to see as neutral and natural, like race, class, ethnicity, and even the very concept “humanity?”
Briefly bring in different readings and write a few paragraphs on how an emphasis on inequality is crucial to have a critical anthropology and a solid understanding of the world.
Some hints: Read Abu Loghod carefully, and how she tries to replace “culture” with material and structural realities of the world, how colonialism and imperial politics are essential to grasp if we are to develop an accurate understanding of the “difference” in the world today.
4. Bianca Williams and Miriam Ticktin’s texts almost sound like they’re talking to each other. What do they say about the global connections and the limitations? How can we understand “giving back” in Prof. Williams’ text and “contamination” in Ticktin’s article?
Explain in two-three paragraphs
5. How does *critical* anthropology, unlike Geertz and Boas, help us understand our own worlds? Anthropology is not only about learning other people/cultures, but each text can help us reflect on our own “norms” or what we see as “natural.”
Write a short essay on how this class has made you reflect on yourself, your beliefs, your “normals” as American college students, who happen to be at a business school. What have you learned, that strike you the most, that made you question what is presented to us as truths that we cannot dare to question (like, about human nature? nature of economics? race? ethnicity? gender?). And of course, what have you developed as an alternative to what you didn’t question before?
