ANT/SOC 405

SPRING 2022

Paper 2:

Since the midterm paper we have reviewed the following theorists and their associated works:

Emile Durkheim, “Suicide,” and “Elementary Forms of Religion”

Max Weber, “The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism,” and “Bureaucracy”

Pierre Bourdieu, “The Forms of Capital”

Michel Foucault, “Discipline and Punish”

Margaret Mead, “Introduction to Coming of Age in Samoa”

P.H. Collins, “Black Feminist Thought

Through our exploration of the work outlined above, we have reviewed many themes, including the following:

1) capital

2) power

3) race

4) gender

5) material culture

6) ethnography, or ethnographic methodology

This paper is composed of 3 parts: A, B, and C

A. For this paper, you will choose 2 themes above to discuss. For each theme you choose, you will discuss how 2 theorists of your choice explain or approach the theme. For example, state how you think each theorist explains how each theme impacts human lives and societies. Refer to the specific pieces and ideas written by the theorists you choose. You may discuss the same theorist under more than one theme. Be sure to explain why you chose each theorist under each theme. What follows is an example of what you might choose to discuss in response to this part of the exam. This is just an example. You do not have to choose these themes or theorists.

Theme 1: Gender

Theorists and theories on race I will discuss:

Margaret Mead, “Coming of Age in Samoa”

P.H. Collins, “Black Feminist Thought”

Theme 2: Power

Theorists and theories on power I will discuss:

Michel Foucault, “Discipline and Punish”

Pierre Bourdieu, “The Forms of Capital”

In addition to stating each theorist’s approach to or position on the themes you choose, you will also need to:

B. Compare and contrast the theorists’ ideas within each theme you discuss. For example, to go along with the model I provide above, discuss what you think are similarities and differences between the work of Margaret Mead and P.H. Collins under Theme 1, which is gender. Compare and contrast the theorists for Theme 2.

C. All the theory work listed on page 1 of this document is based in part on data collection obtained through ethnography, observations, and interviews conducted by the researchers. So we can understand that these theories are based, to certain extents, on real-world conditions and experiences. How do you see one theoretical approach for each theme you chose playing out in your own life experiences, and why? For example, how do you see P.H. Collins’s understanding of “intersectionality,” and Michel Foucault’s ideas about discipline and punishment impacting your lives or the lives of those around you? Pick examples from your own observations and experiences to discuss. You might want to share something about social interactions, and/or aspects of your hometown, college campus, nation, work life, home life, economy, government, religion, healthcare system, criminal justice system, COVID-19 experiences, or something else of your choice, such as an interest, skill, or hobby of yours.

How to structure your assignment:

You can choose to structure your responses to all the questions above in the form of a comprehensive paper, but you don’t have to. Instead, you can follow the outline below:

Parts A and B:

Theme 1:

Theorist and their ideas:

Theorist and their ideas:

Similarities and differences between theorists’ ideas

Theme 2:

Theorist and their ideas:

Theorist and their ideas:

Similarities and differences between theorists’ ideas

**Write at least 2-3 pages for each theme you discuss. That averages to about 1 page per theorist, and about 1 page for the similarities and differences section. You can go longer if you wish.**

Part C: How do you see one theoretical approach for each theme playing out in your own life experiences, and why?

Theme 1:

Theorist’s ideas and their relationships to your own experiences

Theme 2:

Theorist’s ideas and their relationships to your own experiences

**Write about 0.5-1 page for each theorist’s ideas you discuss in response to this question. You can go longer.**

Additional items:

1. Refer to our Google Doc notes for helpful information.

2. Cite your sources, and create a 1-page bibliography that will go at the end of your document and contain all the sources you used throughout the entire exam. You can refer to the citation and bibliography guidelines in the syllabus, and ask me if you have questions.

3. You can create your assignment in Google Docs or a Word or other compatible text file.

4. Try your best to manage your time on this paper and your ANT/SOC 405 final project, and your other classes.
