This assignment asks you to read Annette Weiner’s ethnography The Trobrianders of Papua New Guinea and compare/contrast this book with Lee’s book and American culture by addressing one of two topics: 1) the relationship between ritual and kinship OR the relationship between ritual and politics. You may NOT mix and match subjects. You must make a consistent comparison of all three cultures in terms of one of the topics. As with the Lee paper, you must make a minimum of 5 points of comparison. In addition to the class books and Lecture Modules, you must use a minimum of 3 additional references, hard copy or internet, to complete your comparison. The comparison/contrast should be written in your own words. If you must use someone else’s words, put them in quotation marks and cite the source in the bibliography. A single quotation should not be more than 2-3 sentences long.
