Martijn at CLOSER (Anthropology of Muslims in Europe) looks at the way that anthropological symbols have been appropriated into retail branding. On the one hand, lots to be cynical about; on the other, this is, in fact, how symbols and rituals work. But is it a challenge for anthropologists' attempts to brand themselves?

Remember the Alamo

Remember the Alamo | ED 262 KCKCC Sp '15 | Scoop.it

"The battle between the Alamo garrison and Mexican President Santa Anna’s forces reads like a Shakespearian tragedy: greatly outnumbered, all the Texan defenders died. Even the men who surrendered were killed, fueling the outrage and critical mass required to swell the Texan army, become an independent republic, and in time choose to be annexed by the United States."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, February 4, 1:16 PM

When we talk about sacred space we often think about religious sites first.  Places like the Alamo or Ground Zero can be seen as critical parts of a national identity and as secular sacred spaces.  Powerful social groups carefully construct memorials at places to strengthen a communal identity.  What makes them tricky is they don’t mean the same thing to everyone—even within a cultural group.

High Security Borders

High Security Borders | ED 262 KCKCC Sp '15 | Scoop.it
Accelerated through the fear from the attacks of 9/11 and all what followed, the so called ‘Western Society’ is constructing the greatest wall ever build on this planet. On different building sites on all five inhabitable continents, walls, fences and high-tech border surveillance are under construction in order to secure the citizens and their high quality of life within this system. The fall of the Berlin Wall was described as the historical moment that marks the demolition of world’s last barrier between nation states. Yet it took the European Union only six years to create with the Schengen Agreement in 1995 a new division only 80km offset to the east of Berlin.

Unit 4 political geography 

This article explains how the world is filled with division and segregation. Some of the most notable are the walls are the wall in berlin, the wall/border/river/fence between the u.s. and mexico and the border between north and south Korea is the most notable walls.

This article relates to unit 4 because it shows how people, through borders, have divided them through history creating new politics, culture and borders themselves. The political processes involved can change the policies and shapes of nations in the world.

Monika Fleischmann's curator insight, February 15, 4:48 AM
Seth Dixon's insight:

This map shows that hi-tech political surveillance of borders is highly correlated with the core areas of the global economy and some of the most attractive immigrant destinations.  

 

Questions to Ponder: What else do you see in this map?  What does this say about the world order?  Are there patterns that this map reveals/conceals?

Restaurants and public places in Ireland are loud. They looked so different from the United States -- full of people laughing and talking to one another -- that it took me several days to figure out just what I was seeing. Actually, it was what I wasn't seeing. As we traveled through Ireland, families and friends met each other for dinner or coffee just like we do here in the States, but without one thing. Their cell phones weren't out. No one was texting. No one was taking selfies. They were with each other. . .

. . . except in one place -- the McDonalds.

Danielle Lip's curator insight, February 16, 7:34 PM

While watching this movie I found the over idea of tradition to be quite accurate because everyone wether they are from Russia, the United States or another country has traditions that come from many years ago. These traditions tell how the people should dress, sleep, work and eat all in the eyes of God. Traditions come from a group and then are passed on for generations, everyone has some type of tradition wether it is in their family or in another community. Tradition helps the people to gain an identity for themselves so he knows and everybody else knows who he is as well as what God expects. The main focus in this movie is not only tradition but also to please and have God in mind at all cost.

According to this article, likes are not synonymous with engagement.

In Conversation with Jared Diamond: "Traditional societies are not frozen models of the past"

Greg Downey's curator insight, March 4, 2013 4:20 AM

If you're not over Jared Diamond's account of the differences between Us and Them, and his shtick about fearing the shower, there's more from an interview he did with sociologist Peter Christoff. For example, he has no time for criticisms that he's homogenizing indigenous groups:

 

'The traditional societies that we see today are not frozen models of the past, on the one hand. On the other hand, they’re not irrelevant to the past because they are still small-scale societies. And when you’ve got 200 people, and whether the 200 people are from today or whether the 200 people are from 30,000 years ago, there are some things that you have to have with 200 people. So in short, I think my book is faithful to the complexities of the problem.'


In other words, I acknowledge what my critics say, but then dismiss it and suggest it's irrelevant because I thought of it.

"I am torn about how to teach these two ideas about cultures and societies all around the world:

Samina Hadi-Tabassum was a 21-year-old first-year teacher fresh out of college when a student brought a knife into the classroom, she recalls. 
Dennis Swender's insight:

A decade after the publication of Jonathan Kozol's "Shame of the Nation" (2005), Professor Samina Hadi-Tabassum (Dominican University, River Forest, IL) finds Kozol's premises even more prevalent in 2015.  Read her latest submission, "Too Much Discipline Hurts Majority-Minority Schools." in Education Week, Jan 28, 2015. 

 

Hadi-Tabassum observes, "When you enter these turnaround schools [in Chicago], there is often an eerie silence.  You never hear children's voices in the hallways.  Rather, you see lines of African-American children crossing the school with their hands behind their backs or their fingers pressed against their lips to indicate silence, and their eyes always facing front. 

 

"The monochromatic lines of uniformed children mimic prison lines, and the teachers' efforts seem focused on ensuring that students do not talk to each other and do not walk outside the line.  All day long, an immense amount of time and energy is spent making sure young African-American students are taught to obey.... When I asked them whether their schools would have the same rules if the children were white, the young teachers responded with a nunanimous no."
