Growing up on the Trobriand Islands in Papua New Guinea

Childhood and educational ideologies in Tauwema

This volume deals with the children’s socialization on the Trobriands. After a survey of ethnographic studies on childhood, the book zooms in on indigenous ideas of conception and birth-giving, the children’s early development, their integration into playgroups, their games and their education within their `own little community’ until they reach the age of seven years. During this time children enjoy much autonomy and independence. Attempts of parental education are confined to a minimum. However, parents use subtle means to raise their children. Educational ideologies are manifest in narratives and in speeches addressed to children. They provide guidelines for their integration into the Trobrianders’ “balanced society” which is characterized by cooperation and competition. It does not allow individual accumulation of wealth – surplus property gained has to be redistributed – but it values the fame acquired by individuals in competitive rituals. Fame is not regarded as threatening the balance of their society.

Offering compelling photos, engaging examples, and select studies by anthropologists in a variety of locations around the globe, this streamlined, market-leading text presents cultural anthropology in vivid, accessible terms showing students how the field is relevant to understanding the complex world around them. The authors present the fundamental concepts from a holistic perspective using three unifying themes to frame the text: 1) the varied ways humans face the challenges of existence, 2) the connections between culture and biology in shaping human beliefs and behavior, and 3) the impact of globalization on peoples and cultures around the world. They also integrate coverage of race, class, gender, and ethnicity throughout the text, and in this edition, they have expanded the popular Globalscape feature to get students thinking about the consequences of globalization and (sometimes) their own behavior. Furthermore, the text’s strong supplements program provides instructors and students with a wealth of resources designed to enhance the teaching and learning experience.

Von realen Ereignissen im Leben der berühmten Ethnologin Margaret Mead inspiriert, erzählt Lily King in diesem grandiosen, spannenden und sinnlichen Roman ebenso anschaulich wie klug von Besitz und Begierde, Entdeckung und Macht, Liebe und Herrschaft. Neuguinea, Anfang der 1930er Jahre. Drei junge Ethnologen – die schon berühmte und faszinierende Amerikanerin Nell Stone, ihr Mann Fen und der Brite Andrew Bankson – stoßen nach Jahren einsamer Feldforschung aufeinander und entwickeln eine leidenschaftliche Dreiecksbeziehung. Erschöpft von den Versuchen, etwas Verwertbares über die Stämme am Sepikfluss herauszufinden, gelangen die drei Forscher zu den Tam, einem weiblich dominierten Stamm mit ungewohnten Ritualen. Während sie immer tiefer in das Leben der Tam eindringen, werden auch ihre unterschiedlichen Wünsche und Interessen immer deutlicher, die erotische Anziehung zwischen Nell Stone und Andrew Bankson immer intensiver. Schließlich schreitet Fen zu einer dramatischen Aktion mit tragischem Ausgang für alle.

This collection of original essays explores money and its social dynamic in eight different Melanesian communities in order to determine why the people of Melanesia continue to use traditional kinds of currency, such as shells, alongside more modern types. When the answer to this question is examined in relation to the use of money in other countries, an entirely new model for thinking about money develops.

Strangers in a Not-so-strange Land

Indian American Immigrants in the Global Age

Author: Arthur Wesley Helweg

Publisher: Wadsworth Publishing Company

ISBN: 9780534613129

Category: Social Science

Page: 163

View: 399

This text is a case study of the Asian Indians in the United States. Almost unheard of three decades ago and almost nonexistent in the United States in the 1970s, this community is, on the average, the highest educated and claims the highest average family income of any ethnic community in North America. They are part of and representative of the new kind of immigrant coming to America. This text delves into the subject of immigration by focusing on how the immigration of highly educated and professionally trained migrants, which began in the late 1960s/early 1970s, differs from and challenges the traditional concepts of migration studies. The case study takes a transnational perspective and discusses the role of globalization and the current world system to form a more comprehensive study than those studies that have dominated migration studies and anthropology to date.

The Anthropology of Islam

Author: Gabriele Marranci

Publisher: Berg

ISBN: 1847885438

Category: Social Science

Page: 224

View: 591

An increasing number of people have questions about Islam and Muslims. But how can we approach and study Islam after September 11th? Which is the best methodology to understand an Islam that is changing in a globalized world? The Anthropology of Islam argues that Islam today needs to be studied as a living religion through the observation of everyday Muslim life. Drawing on extensive original fieldwork, Marranci provides provocative analyses of Islam and its relation to issues such as identities, politics, culture, power and gender. The Anthropology of Islam is unprecedented in its innovative and challenging discussion about fieldwork among Muslims, and its ethnographically based interpretations of contemporary aspects of Islam in a post-September 11th society. The book will appeal to those in anthropology and beyond who see and are interested in investigating the unsettled place of Islam in our multicultural society.
