Cult Anth – Exam 1 Study Guide This list should serve as a guide to help you go back through your lecture notes and readings. These are the most important ideas, terms, and cultures that you have encountered. This list is not necessarily the sole source for test questions -- it is intended merely as a way of helping to organize your study efforts. It will not be sufficient to merely look up definitions of each of these items. Indeed, some of them don't have definitions. You should make sure you understand how these items relate to one another and identify the contexts in which they arose. Remember, the test is this Friday in class. It will consist of multiple choice questions, short answer, map quiz, and essay. As you review your notes & other material, try to anticipate what type of question might be asked with respect to a particular concept or society. Prepare examples to back up possible answers. Compare, Anthropology 1. Cultural anthropology (and the other three subfields) - biological/physical, archaeology, linguistic 2. Define: - methodology : a particular procedure or set of procedures - ethnography : the study and systematic recording of human cultures; also : a descriptive work produced from such research - ethnology : cross cultural analysis - etic : data collected analysis of culture from the perspective of one who does not participate in the culture - emic : data collected analysis of culture from the perspective of one who participates in the culture being studied - ethnocentrism : characterized by or based on the attitude that one's own group is superior - cultural relativism : view that each culture must be understood in terms of the values & ideas of that culture and not be judged by the standards of another - participant observation : research method for learning about culture by living in the culture for an extended period to gather data; live w/the people, learn the language, participate in everyday life - holism : the view that one must study all aspects of a culture in order to understand it in its entirety
