Managing conflict successfully requires effort.
Detail the 7 suggestions for dealing with interpersonal conflict found in chapter 11.
summarize them into a few paragraphs
*****Chapter 11 gives seven suggestions for dealing with interpersonal conflict. So, basically, just a summary/ writing of what those seven suggestions are****
Comprehending the act of consumption as a component of attitudes and manifestations, by all means, is to understand it as a political act can be an alternative way to understand consumption. Whether sustainable or not, acquiring stuff and possessing them is the stronghold of contemporary society, so it is also political.” With that in mind, try to integrate or dissociate Michele Michelleti’s notion of political consumption with the idea of boycotts and buycotts presented in chickfil-a’s case.
In the fragment ‘Capitalism as Religion’, Walter Benjamin compared the capitalist system to religions in its functions. “Capitalism as Religion,” written in 1921, was only published several decades after his death. It proposes that capitalism is a cultic religion, without mercy or truce, leading humanity to the “house of despair.”
As we read in the case, the mechanism to solve Chick-fil-A’s reputation issue was presented in two ways: client’s support through more acquisition of its products. And the donation to NGOs and other charity institutions trying to wash out the stain that came along with the repercussion of the issue.
Some intellectuals would claim that trying to fix capitalism could cause more damage than bringing another system to the surface; to function, capitalism collapses the entire social fabric that supports it, they say. How do you react to this discussion? Do you agree with Benjamin? Please explain trying to connect your ideas with the readings for the day and the case study presented.
“The discussion around human nature itself is crucial when working with matters involving a great set of ethical and moral values, such as solidarity. Common sense tends to portray solidarity as something consensual and closely connected to more constituent values of humankind. However, understanding the phenomenon more profoundly and less passionately leads us to a more complex view of things. In this sense, the knowledge from frontier fields such as sociobiology and anthropology can contribute to a better understanding of the phenomenon of solidarity.” With that in mind, explain how capitalism, within its ideology, can shape and redesign solidarity as a concept and practice
Film-based Ethnography Observation Project
For the film-based ethnographic observation project, select an appropriate film (either
documentary or general cinematic release film) and describe the culture and their behaviors as
demonstrated in the film with respect to the concepts that we are learning about in the class.
As part of your write up you will need to clearly name and connect at least five vocabulary
terms that we have covered to the observed behaviors. These terms can be from any chapter or
portion of the class and can be either from the same chapter or from different chapters. Make
sure that the terms are clearly identified by bolding them in your text.
In selecting the film, you will need to be mindful and deliberate about the culture(s) or
subculture(s) represented in the film. This should be a culture or subculture that you are not
generally familiar with and it should be a central component of the film.
Appropriate films include ethnographic documentaries that you can find on streaming services
or through our library film databases such as “Films on Demand” and “Kanopy”, or mainstream
films that directly describe either real or imagined cultures such as “Bend it Like Beckham” or
“Avatar”. It is up to you to find an appropriate film. If you pick a film to use and while writing up
your paper, you realize that you have insufficient material to use from the film, you will need to
Your paper will be 4-6 pages long and will clearly identify the film, the director and the year it
was made and also where you found it. You will also provide a brief synopsis of the film. The
majority of the paper will focus on the analysis of the culture and behaviors observed in the
film and their relation to the class content. An important part of ethnographic fieldwork (which
this project is meant to simulate) is learning how to take appropriate and meaningful notes, so
you will also be expected to submit your fieldnotes with the paper. The paper will be due as
identified on the syllabus schedule.
Your paper will be assessed on the following criteria:
– Meeting the page length parameters
– Identification of the film, director, year and source where you viewed it
– Clear synopsis of film
– Effective analysis of the behaviors presented in the film
– Identification of the five (minimum) vocabulary terms and correct usage of the terms
in the analysis of the culture
– Proper spelling and use of grammar
– Presence of your fieldnotes
Your essay should be at least four pages long (more if you need it) It should relate your discussion to anthropological concepts and issues covered in class and incorporate specific cited references to the course material to support your statement and main points. Be sure to use good grammar and develop logical paragraphs around one idea.

Analyze and discuss philosophically a topic from one of the religious traditions addressed in class (Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Daoism, or Polytheistic, Dualistic or Indigenous Religions). You can discuss this topic philosophically from within one religious tradition, or you can use a comparative approach addressing it from the points of view of two different religious traditions
*involves 1 course reading and 1 course video* Video: https://youtu.be/–gim7W_jQQ 1) Response Paper (10 points each = 90 points): Course participants will write a 2 page (max) paper that outlines the arguments that the author(s) make in the specific text and ties in with the previous class discussion and course readings/videos. The basis of the grading for the response paper will be both on content and level of work put into the piece. Specifically, the requirement is that !hard work” be put into the document. By hard work, I refer to a sustained and concentered effort that demonstrates engagement with the written, visual and audio texts. Further, a paper that demonstrates hard work will not be graded for a precise answer, but rather a carefully thought out argument that is based upon class discussion and material from the syllabus. The focus is not on achieving the !correct” answer, but instead to show a deep engagement with the material that illustrates careful thought. The paper does not require outside sourcing and Wikipedia should never be a citation reference. Given the subject matter and expertise of the instructor, any attempt to circumvent critical engagement with cursory engagement with the course materials will be quite evident and graded accordingly.
My instructor has asked me to put together a comprehensive annotated bibliography on the similarities and differences between these two religions. I’ve already gathered my three sources but my thesis statement is lacking according to my instructor. I’m including both my introductory paragraph and my thesis below.
Voodoo has been sensationalized by western media and horror movies such as White Zombie
(1932) The typical depictions of Voodoo in popular culture are something that is immoral and
goes against God’s divine will by worshipping fake idols and taking part in black magic like the
fallen angel Lucifer. But Voodoo’s history is deeply tied with slaves that were indoctrinated into
the Roman Catholic religion when they were brought across the seas mostly of African descent.
How has the integration of religious beliefs and practices of slaves and other immigrants shaped modern voodoo and Roman Catholicism?

Among the Wild Chimpanzees
1. Watch again the National Geographic video – Among the Wild Chimpanzees whose link I have posted on BB and sent you in an email; and answer any two of the questions below.
1. Discuss the difference between tool making and tool using. Give examples of
tool making and tool using in chimps. What does this suggest about chimp intelligence?
2. Cooperative behaviors are those behaviors that enable participants to achieve some benefit through their combined actions. Discuss and list instances of cooperative behaviors among chimps. How do they compare with human cooperative behaviors?
3. Affiliative behaviors are those behaviors that reinforce social bonds and promote group cohesion. Discuss and list the affiliative behaviors you saw in the video. How do they compare with human affiliative behaviors?
4. List examples of infant care you saw in the video. What similarities are there between chimps and humans?
5. Discuss any chimp deceptive behavior you saw in the video. How does it compare with human deceptive behavior?
6. Discuss predatory behavior in chimps. How does it compare with that of humans?
7. Curiosity is the desire to know and it has always been associated with humans. Jane Goodall’s research shows that chimps can also be curious. After watching the video discuss and list example of curiosity among chimps.
8. Discuss, compare and list some of the many ways in which human and chimp males display their ego
9. What are the reasons for anger, aggression, or violence among chimps? How do the reasons compare with those that drive humans to anger, aggression or violence?
10. Alloparenting is the behavior whereby other people besides parents hold, carry or interact with babies/infants. Discuss examples of alloparenting among chimps. How does it compare with that of humans?
2. After you watch the video, you will realize that these are interesting questions. Before you answer them, try to create in your mind a vivid, enthusiastic and in-depth answer to your question. You’ll need to do some extra preparation to achieve that. For instance, go online (use databases or the internet) to do some research on the question that either supports or contradicts the ideas you have taken from Among the Wild Chimpanzees.

Length: Each answer must be between 250 and 300 words. Include a Works Cited page indicating sources other than the video.
This essay simply involves you producing organized essay responses to the following two
topic questions. These questions are intended to get you to think about, and reflect on, some of
the key ideas from the second half of the course’s module set (Modules 11 to 20), while
demonstrating your knowledge and understanding of key ideas and readings.
Both questions are to be answered. Each essay will be marked out of 15 and combined for a total
mark out of 30 (which is then converted back to a total mark out of 15%).
(i) With reference to lectures, assigned readings, and media materials, discuss how the idea of
“cultural appropriation” becomes part of the study of race, racism, and popular culture. How have
anthropologists described the particular dynamics of “appropriation” and what are some examples
from popular culture? How might such discussions relate to ideas of “performance” and how
ideas of race are embodied and acted out in popular culture, past and present?
(ii) Drawing on course lectures, assigned readings, and media materials, discuss the idea of
counter-hegemony in the study of race, racism, and popular culture. What kinds of counterhegemonic expressions might we find in popular culture (refer to specific examples)? Given such
forms of popular culture, what might it mean to also think of popular culture as a site of “cultural
struggle”, as Stuart Hall once suggested?
Formatting & Assignment Submission:
Essays should be typed, double-spaced, 1-inch margins, and at a maximum 12-point font size,
with a bibliography/references page. Essays should make reference to specified/relevant
assigned readings and these must be properly and accurately cited. Citation style (e.g., APA,
MLA, Chicago) is your choice, but do keep your reference format consistent (i.e., pick one format
and stick to it).
Each essay should be around 1000 words or 3 pages typed double spaced (i.e., 6-7 pages in
total, including a references/bibliography page).
This assignment is worth 15% of your final mark for this course and is due on April 8th, 2022.
