ANTHROPOLOGY 1000 (Linnekin): MID-TERM EXAM STUDY QUESTIONS The vast majority of the exam questions will be drawn from this guide. If you use this to focus your study you will be very well prepared. The test will, like the quizzes, contain some definitions and multiple-choice, true-false, or short-answer questions. Note that the essay- type questions in Section II below are review questions intended to help you master the material and see the moral of the story in the assigned readings. Actual exam questions will be phrased more narrowly than these. The exam may include one or two questions that must be answered in a short paragraph, but no long essays. You are responsible for all of the materials posted on our HuskyCT site as well as assigned films. For material in linked external web sites, you are expected to have read through this material so that you can answer very general True/False questions about it. For the shorter required readings, you should familiarize yourself with ea ch article’s most important point, key concept(s), and ethnographic setting. Use the guide, “How to read a chapter or article,” on our home page. Questions about the shorter readings will identify the author s name or article title, and/or the location and the society. You do not have to memorize authors names. For the textbook Cultural Anthropology , use the “Toolkit” review at the end of each chapter to guide your study. For terms and definitions from the textbook, concentrate on the ones listed below. Note : The Mid-Term Exam will NOT contain questions on reading #22 (Harris), or on the following pages in Cultural Anthropology : 48-52, 391-393, 448-454. I. Define, identify, or contrast these terms: society/culture cultural universals incest taboo enculturation participant observation ethnocentrism/cultural relativism interpretivist approach qualitative/quantitative data ethnography informed consent anonymity holism levirate leveling mechanisms symbol ritual productivity [ Cultural Anthropology , Ch. 4] displacement [ CA , Ch. 4] syntax grammar dialect

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
