*  Educational anthropology
... ' Educational anthropology, ' or the Anthropology of Education, is a sub-field of anthropology and is widely associated with the pioneering work of Margaret Mead and later, George Spindler, Solon Kimball, and Dell Hymes. It gained traction as a field of study during the 1970s, particularly due to professors at Teachers College, Columbia University. As the name would suggest, the focus of educational anthropology is on education, although an anthropological approach to education tends to focus on the cultural aspects of education, including informal as well as formal education. As education involves understandings of who we are, it is not surprising that the single most recognized dictum of educational anthropology is that the field is centrally concerned with cultural transmission. Comitas, L. and Dolgin, J. 1979. 'On Anthropology and Education: Retrospect and Prospect'.

Anthropology majors graduate with a wide variety of skills that equip them for an array of future career possibilities. Anthropology majors study the human condition from both a cultural and biological perspective. As a result, anthropology majors have great "people skills", are adept at working with people from a diversity of contexts, learn how to think critically, look below the surface of an issue for deeper meaning, and generally are quite skilled at thinking "outside the box." Anthropology majors are "worldly", often taking their studies abroad to interact with people from other cultures. These skills are all highly valued by employers in today's increasingly diverse society.

Recent examples of the kinds of studies undertaken by medical anthropologists include research into the impact of AIDS on Central African societies, the consequences of the traumas of war on families in Sri Lanka and Guatemala, the impact of the new reproductive technologies for example, in vitro fertilisation on British notions of 'the family', the impact of malnutrition on Brazilian ideas of children's illness, the appearance of new illnesses like multiple personality disorder and chronic fatigue Gulf War Syndrome and the effects of migration on the mental health of ethnic minority groups.

Taking Anthropology, Introduction. February 3, 2012. jason. Savage Minds welcomes guest blogger Jason Antrosio. These major waves of anthropology’s critical self-examination were the neo-Marxist, feminist, postmodern, and postcolonial autocritiques between roughly the late 1960s and the end of the 20th century. A careful and balanced history of those sequences of anthropological autocritique still remains to be written, but to my mind, one may argue with some justification that each of these critiques in some ways went too far and that none of them fully achieved what its main advocates originally had in mind. –Andre Gingrich, Transitions: Notes on Sociocultural Anthropology’s Present and Its Transnational Potential, December 2010:555. Our argument is that anthropology departments have not done well when it comes to decolonizing their own practices around race. This is neither true of all departments nor true all of the time–but is still true all too often. –Karen Brodkin, Sandra Morgen and Janis Hutchinson, ...

This seminar develops a critique of topics in medical anthropology theory. It revisits significant legacies from classic anthropology, joining them with insights from current theory and ethnography, to analyze selected issues in medical anthropology. The topic for 2015 is Syndemics. The term syndemics points to the determinant importance of social conditions in disease concentrations, interactions, and health consequences. In syndemics, the interaction of diseases or other adverse health conditions commonly arises because of adverse social conditions e.g., poverty, exploitative, stigmatization, oppressive social relationships that put socially devalued groups at heightened risk. 3 cr, Spring sem.

Categories: indigenous people / minorities, Us and Them, anthropology general, journal articles / papers Minority scholars treated as second class academics: Still a racial bias in anthropology In a blog post at AnthroNow, Manissa McCleave Maharawal draws our attention to an important article in the American Anthropologist that was already published in november 2011: Anthropology as White Public Space. Here we find several examples for that anthropologists of color graduate students and faculty often are treated as second class academics: In sum, taken-for-granted practices of racially dividing labor mark anthropology departments as white institutional spaces. They include assigning diversity work to faculty of color, while giving it little value for tenure and promotion, and freeing white faculty from responsibility for it. Departments often value faculty of color for their ability to teach students of color but not necessarily white ...

A few questions for the anthropology grad students in the audience. June 17, 2012. Ryan. Dear anthro grad students,. Remember when you first decided to study anthropology. Remember those anthro 101 classes and those profs and ethnographies and all of that good stuff that made you decide, “Hey, I’m gonna do this anthropology thing”. Well, now that you’re in grad school, how’s it working out. Seriously. A few more questions:. 1 What brought you into the discipline in the first place. What made you say to yourself: “Self, this is what I want to do with my life”. 2 And how’s everything looking now that you’re on this side of the whole process. Are you hopeful or pessimistic about your future in anthropology. 4 How are you faring with the whole publish or perish paradigm. Thoughts. 3 Of course there’s a number three…I know you have all learned to rapidly skim everything you lay your eyes upon because you have mountains of reading all the time, so I just wanted to see if you’re still paying attention. The question:...

The Anthropology of Freedom, Part 3. David Bidney, 1963 p. What Leach expresses here, in part, is the descriptivist bias of anthropology of the time, and specifically of political anthropology: that the goal is comparative analysis without a priori reference to any normative political ideals. This is not so curious if freedom is understood as an outcome of a normative theory of the state, in favor of a descriptive, comparative science of political systems. Neither of these expresses allegiance to or appears similar to what we think of as “political anthropology.” Riesman, interestingly, was a student of Balandier and the son of David Riesman of The Lonely Crowd fame, but he explicitly avers any deep engagement with political anthropology in his book, which is dedicated instead to Dorothy Lee. Paul Riesman’s book is a different take on the problem of freedom or liberty. Because Riesman is avowedly uninterested in the political structure of Fulani society, the notion of Freedom he is interested in probably ends...

My path is applied visual anthropology —incorporating film media studies, entrepreneurship, and the anthropology of law and social change. As a student in UF’s combined Anthropology graduate program, I intend to pursue an interdisciplinary PhD in Cultural Anthropology. What is visual anthropology.

But these things aren’t a big deal, and I love the fact that lectures such as these are available for free online which I’ve also told Hawks directly – the mail he quotes here was from me.

Only a small subset of the posts on this blog deal with economics – I have diverse interests, and as the category cloud in the sidebar below illustrates this blog contains posts about all kinds of stuff: Mathematics, physics, statistics, geology, geography, health care and medicine, psychology, evolutionary biology, genetics, history, anthropology, archaeology, chess, ….

Medical Anthropology Quarterly: Medical Anthropology Quarterly (MAQ) is an international peer-reviewed academic journal published for the Society for Medical Anthropology by the American Anthropological Association. It publishes research and theory about human health and disease from all areas of medical anthropology.Negroid: Negroid (also known as Congoid) is a term that is used by forensic and physical anthropologists to refer to individuals and populations that share certain morphological and skeletal traits that are frequent among most populations in Sub-Saharan Africa. The term is commonly associated with notions of racial typology, which are disputed by many anthropologists.Dell Hymes: Dell Hathaway Hymes (June 7, 1927, Portland, OregonNovember 13, 2009, Charlottesville, Virginia) was a linguist, sociolinguist, anthropologist, and folklorist who established disciplinary foundations for the comparative, ethnographic study of language use. His research focused upon the languages of the Pacific Northwest.Mass graveProto-Greek language: The Proto-Greek language is the assumed last common ancestor of all known varieties of Greek, including Mycenaean, the classical Greek dialects (Attic-Ionic, Aeolic, Doric and Arcado-Cypriot), and ultimately Koine, Byzantine and modern Greek. The unity of Proto-Greek would have ended as Hellenic migrants, speaking the predecessor of the Mycenaean language, entered the Greek peninsula sometime in the Neolithic era or the Bronze Age.Alexander Walker (physiologist): Alexander Walker (1779—1852) was a Scottish physiologist, aesthetician, encyclopaedist, translator, novelist, and journalist.Q Division Studios: Q Division Studios is a recording studio located in Somerville, Massachusetts, United States, at the heart of the Boston area's music scene. Founded in 1986, Q Division was originally located at 443 Albany Street in Boston, but moved to its current two-studio facility in 2000.NeurogeneticsDavid Glass (sociologist): 1970sMedical sign: A medical sign is an objective indication of some medical fact or characteristic that may be detected by a physician during a physical examination of a patient. For example, whereas paresthesia is a symptom (only the person experiencing it can directly observe their own tingling feeling), erythema is a sign (anyone can confirm that the skin is redder than usual).Pothy: Pothy is a small town near Thalayolaparambu, Kottayam district in Kerala, India. It is 2 km far from Thalayolaparambu, 10 km far from Vaikom, 35 km far from Ernakulam & Kottayam.Newington Green Unitarian ChurchThe Flash ChroniclesAndrew Dickson White

(1/338) Explicit guidelines for qualitative research: a step in the right direction, a defence of the 'soft' option, or a form of sociological imperialism?

Within the context of health service research, qualitative research has sometimes been seen as a 'soft' approach, lacking scientific rigour. In order to promote the legitimacy of using qualitative methodology in this field, numerous social scientists have produced checklists, guidelines or manuals for researchers to follow when conducting and writing up qualitative work. However, those working in the health service should be aware that social scientists are not all in agreement about the way in which qualitative work should be conducted, and they should not be discouraged from conducting qualitative research simply because they do not possess certain technical skills or extensive training in sociology, anthropology or psychology. The proliferation of guidelines and checklists may be off-putting to people who want to undertake this sort of research, and they may also make it even more difficult for researchers to publish work in medical journals. Consequently, the very people who may be in a position to change medical practice may never read the results of important qualitative research.  (+info)

(2/338) Computer analysis of qualitative data: the use of ethnograph.

Ethnograph, a code and retrieve software program for computer analysis of qualitative data, was utilized to assist in analyzing the content of in-depth interviews and focus group data. This program requires basic computer hardware and is fairly easy to use. The main advantage of the program is easy access to data dealing with a particular issue and easy retrieval of text for analysis and illustration. However, to get the maximum benefit from this program, documents need to be structured In the format suitable for the software. Among the difficulties encountered were the absence of on-line documents dummy coding, lack of options in printing facility and the tendency for the program to hang whenever there was a printing error.  (+info)

(3/338) Rapid ethnographic assessment of breastfeeding practices in periurban Mexico City.

Before carrying out a breastfeeding promotion programme in a periurban area of Mexico City, we conducted a rapid ethnographic study to determine the factors associated with absence of exclusive breastfeeding. The responses to pilot interviews were used to develop a standardized questionnaire regarding reasons for infant feeding choice, sources of advice, and barriers to breastfeeding. We interviewed a random sample of 150 mothers with a child < 5 years of age; 136 (91%) of them had initiated breastfeeding; but only 2% exclusively breastfed up to 4 months. The mothers consistently stated that the child's nutrition, health, growth, and hygiene were the main reasons for the type of feeding selected; cost, comfort, and the husband's opinion were less important. Physicians were ranked as the most important source of advice. Reduction or cessation of breastfeeding occurred on the doctor's advice (68%); or when the mothers encountered local folk illnesses such as "coraje" (52%) or "susto" (54%), which are associated with anger or fright; or had "not enough milk" (62%) or "bad milk" (56%); or because of illness of the mother (56%) or child (43%). During childhood illnesses and conditions, breastfeeding was reduced and the use of supplementary foods was increased. This study emphasizes the importance of cultural values in infant feeding choices, defines specific barriers to breastfeeding, and provides a basis for interventions to promote exclusive breastfeeding in the study population.  (+info)

(4/338) Fish and mammals in the economy of an ancient Peruvian kingdom.

Fish and mammal bones from the coastal site of Cerro Azul, Peru shed light on economic specialization just before the Inca conquest of A. D. 1470. The site devoted itself to procuring anchovies and sardines in quantity for shipment to agricultural communities. These small fish were dried, stored, and eventually transported inland via caravans of pack llamas. Cerro Azul itself did not raise llamas but obtained charqui (or dried meat) as well as occasional whole adult animals from the caravans. Guinea pigs were locally raised. Some 20 species of larger fish were caught by using nets; the more prestigious varieties of these show up mainly in residential compounds occupied by elite families.  (+info)

(5/338) Building momentum: an ethnographic study of inner-city redevelopment.

OBJECTIVES: One factor contributing to the decay of inner-city areas, and to consequent excess mortality, is the massive loss of housing. This report studied the effects of a redevelopment project on social functioning in an inner-city community. METHODS: This ethnographic study included the following elements: a longitudinal study of 10 families living in renovated housing, repeated observations and photographing of the street scene, focus groups, and informal interviews with area residents. The project was located in the Bradhurst section of Harlem in New York City and was focused on a redevelopment effort sponsored by local congregations. RESULTS: Those who were able to move into newly renovated housing found that their living conditions were greatly improved. Neighborhood revitalization lagged behind the rehabilitation of individual apartment houses. This uneven redevelopment was a visual and sensory reminder of "what had been." Residents missed the warmth and social support that existed in Harlem before its decline. CONCLUSIONS: Rebuilding damaged housing contributes greatly to the well-being of inner-city residents. The current pace and scope of rebuilding are insufficient to restore lost vitality.  (+info)

(6/338) Natural experimental models: the global search for biomedical paradigms among traditional, modernizing, and modern populations.

During the past four decades, biomedical scientists have slowly begun to recognize the unique opportunities for studying biomedical processes, disease etiology, and mechanisms of pathogenesis in populations with unusual genetic structures, physiological characteristics, focal endemic disease, or special circumstances. Such populations greatly extend our research capabilities and provide a natural laboratory for studying relationships among biobehavioral, genetic, and ecological processes that are involved in the development of disease. The models presented illustrate three different types of natural experiments: those occurring in traditionally living, modernizing, and modern populations. The examples are drawn from current research that involves population mechanisms of adaptation among East African Turkana pastoralists; a search for etiology and mechanisms of pathogenesis of an emerging disease among the Yakut people of Siberia; and psychosocial stress, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease in women working outside the home in New York City and among subpopulations in Hawaii. The models in general, and the examples in specific, represent natural laboratories in which relatively small intrapopulation differences and large interpopulation differences can be used to evaluate health and disease outcomes.  (+info)

(7/338) Household poisoning exposure among children of Mexican-born mothers: an ethnographic study.

OBJECTIVE: To explore reasons for high rates of unintentional poisoning among Latino children under 5 years old. DESIGN: Ethnographic interviews were carried out using a sample of mothers identified via door-to-door canvassing in an area with documented high injury rates among Latino children. Interviews included many open-ended and follow-up questions to elicit a detailed family history and emphasized observation of conditions and behaviors in the homes. SETTING: Low-income neighborhoods of Southern California. SUBJECTS: Fifty mothers born in Mexico with children under 5 years old. RESULTS: Children were exposed to potential poisoning agents in more than 80% of homes. Contributory factors related to culture included favorable attitudes toward iron as a healthful substance; extensive use of products that lack child-resistant packaging, such as rubbing alcohol and medicines from Mexico; high prevalence of shared housing; limited familiarity with toxic household chemicals not widely used in Mexico; and inability to read warning labels in English. CONCLUSION: Current Poison Control Center outreach efforts should be expanded. Clinicians are uniquely positioned to advise parents about the safe use and storage of toxic substances, including widely used products lacking child-resistant packaging. Medicines should be labeled in Spanish for those who do not know English.  (+info)

(8/338) Ethnographic interviews to elicit patients' reactions to an intelligent interactive telephone health behavior advisor system.

Information technology is being used to collect data directly from patients and to provide educational information to them. Concern over patient reactions to this use of information technology is especially important in light of the debate over whether computers dehumanize patients. This study reports reactions that patient users expressed in ethnographic interviews about using a computer-based telecommunications system. The interviews were conducted as part of a larger evaluation of Telephone-Linked Care (TLC)-HealthCall, an intelligent interactive telephone advisor, that advised individuals about how to improve their health through changes in diet or exercise. Interview findings suggest that people formed personal relationships with the TLC system. These relationships ranged from feeling guilty about their diet or exercise behavior to feeling love for the voice. The findings raise system design and user interface issues as well as research and ethical questions.  (+info)


What cultural baby items would you like to see more readily on the market?


I am opening a multi-cultural baby store in the near future and I am trying to get an idea of what other mums would find useful. I have a mixed race child and I found it practically impossible to find books, clothes and toys to suit. Everything was 'white' based. I wanted her to have a range of books some with children from different cultures in and baby clothes from Africa, everything was available but after hunting long and hard. What items would you like to see on the market more readily and do you think it's a good idea?
----------

Mothers in other countries use carriers to keep their babies close to them all day. In South Korea, they use something called a podaegi, it's like a tied wrap carrier they wear on their backs so they can keep the baby close while still going about their daily lives. It keeps the babies soothed, but let's the mom have free range of her arms.
They have the Baby Bjorn carriers and such here, but they're just not the same as carriers used in other countries. They don't give you the full range of movement.


What would be a good idea for a cultural food dish to bring to class?

It doesn't matter, any culture is fine.

What is the easiest cultural clothes of a country to make from recycled material?


It's a project. I need an idea of what cultural clothe I'm gonna make from recycled material. If you could please give tell me an easy clothe to make and the materials I'm gonna need.
----------

You can try creating a Romanian traditional costume for women. I made it and it was really easy to make. (Actually I made lots of clothes from recycled materials).
Here you have a picture for it http://www.flickr.com/photos/24646726@N08/3620272405/
It's easy to make because all you need is white garbage bags, orange and red mesh sack http://talen79.en.made-in-china.com/product/coXEzLZUHarq/China-PE-Raschel-Mesh-Bag.html and some beads. 
For the upper part you use the white garbage bags and you make a long sleeve shirt and you staple it, you don't saw it(easier to staple) and than you can add 4 rows of beads in front (black and orange or black and red). 
For the bottom you just take a red mesh sack and an orange one and overlap them so they will fit you like in the picture. Than you make like a little belt out of some sack material and there you go, you can have a costume like in the picture.
If you need more info let me know.

Good luck!

Be happy! Be wise! Be you!

What kind of cultural experiences are gained by adopting internationally?


i am writing a speech about international vs. domestic adoption, and one of my points is the cultural experiences you have by adopting internationally.

my ideas were: 
1. you learn a lot about the child's original culture
2. you have the chance to incorporate that culture into your own life
3. the traveling to that country in general


are these reasonable?
do you know any sites that might address this?
sorry, you misunderstood me, or i guess i wasn't clear enough.

i KNOW that adoption is all about the child, most of my speech is on that, but i needed one more topic and this is all i could come up with.

i have alot more to my speech than just this whole cultural thing.
----------

But adoption isn't supposed to be about the ADULTS, it's about what's best for CHILDREN.

Turn your topic around: what do these kids LOSE?


What is the cultural significance of the nose piercing that many Indian women wear?


I've seen many women from India that wear a jewel in their nose.  Does this have some sort of cultural or religious significance?  What is its history?
----------

i thought it represented better zen


What different cultural foods should someone try?


Me and my sister want to do a "eat, pray, live" type thing and were not sure which cultural food we should start off with? Any ideas and also what would be good to eat there?
----------

Indian, Thai, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, African, Mexican, Icelandic, American. 
I've had all. So freaking good too.


I need to make a dish with cultural and historical significance?


I have to do a project where I choose a food dish and research the historical/cultural significance of it. We need to buy ingredients and then make it along with a PowerPoint that shows it's importance. I don't want to do something TOO easy, like spaghetti from Italy but not anything TOO challenging. I need to serve 8-10 people, any suggestions? THANKS!!

I suggest a Spanish dish called "Moros y Cristianos." This is a dish not only loaded with flavour and goodness but also with buckets of cultural and hiostorical significance that has also got topical connections...

The dish literally translates into "moors and christians" and consists of a savoury stew of lentils (or sometimes black beans) surrounded by rice. You can see the significance... If you look on the internet there are numerous recipes for the dish - it appears in many Spanish cook books. If you can't find one ask again and I'll post a recipe too. The good news is it's easy to make, cheap to make, and highly nutritious - therefore a great dish for students to have in their repertoire !

The dish is said to commemorate the siege of Granada in 1492 (a year with other significance too, if you want to branch out into that...) The "moors" - Arabs from North Africa - had ruled most of Spain for more than 700 years, and Granada was one of the last stands made by them against the conquering Christians from the rest of northern Europe. There is much about the preceding years of Arab rule in Spain which is of enormous interest, and which still impacts on Spanish culture today (food, architecture, language, dance, politics etc etc) as well as much of interest in the subsequent takeover by the so-called Christians (the Spanish Inquisition, the connection between the Spanish and English kings, the establishment of the Spanish empire in South America, to name but a few. ) Your problem will only be to know where to stop - and all this from a simple peasant dish! 

Anyway - you do the research and the cooking.... good luck.


What social and cultural reasons help explain the so-called 'epidemic' of depression and anxiety?


Hi everyone, I have an essay due next week which I need a bit of advice on:

"What social and cultural reasons help explain the so-called 'epidemic' of depression and anxiety? Your essay should show your understanding of the social construction and production of mental illness."

I have a basic sound knowledge on it, but would like some alternative views.

Cheers.

I think this is a great opportunity to learn how to do research, lol. 
In many cultures, it is almost against the law to talk about your feelings or even acknowledge that you have feelings. Many ppl feel that going to therapy could be very humiliating for the family and make you look weak, this is often the case in the older generation. So this in turn keeps many ppl believing that they don't need therapy, regardless of which one. Therefore causing the depression and anxiety to be passed down simply because the cycle doesn't change and understanding that you can deal with depression and anxiety.

Also, many family issues cause depression and anxiety and family issues are not to be discussed outside of the house or even not discussed at all.
