Approaching the final assignments
It is high time we selected our final assignments’ topics. The list of our propositions of theorists is here.
- Please, select one for you (individually). I will leave you a book to scan the short original excerpts from these theorists so you can scan or copy it to get started with your work.
- In the next step you will be supposed to get to know the author better (using library and textbooks).
- The following step would be to select a current topic (if you don’t know what topic – browse for example: Discover Society) that can be explained using the concept from the point 1.
- Your analysis will follow – and that would be your final presentation or/and a paper.
Note that only point 1 is obligatory before the next week (Dec 1).
For the next week (Dec 1), please, read also: one chapter from History and Theory in Anthropology by Alan Barnard the chapter: 5. Functionalism and structural-functionalism. We will follow up on the lectures.
