I’m working on a Social Science question and need guidance to help me study.
This assignment will enable you to read an entire contemporary “ethnography” about migration processes in the United States, and to put the topics and ideas presented in it in conversation with other course materials. (An ethnography is the written account produced by an anthropologist about cultural processes.) To give you a sense for how an anthropologist might approach a particular issue in displacement, you will select one of the ethnographies below, and complete a book review that will incorporate ideas and concepts from the class. This will demonstrate your ability to put together ideas and information from multiple sources.
For the paper, you should address the following:
I encourage you to work together with classmates who are using the same text, and to collaborate on thinking through the analysis and synthesis aspects of the paper. However, each student will need to turn in their own paper, and the papers will go through Turnitin for similarity review. In other words, please do your own work on the final paper. The book review should be 750-1000 words.
Select one of the following ethnographies for the book review (some of these may be available through the library, others may need to be ordered):
Besteman, Catherine. 2016. “Making Refuge: Somali Bantu Refugees and Lewiston, Maine.” Durham: Duke University Press.
Castañeda, Heide. 2019. “Borders of Belonging: Struggle and Solidarity in Mixed-Status Immigrant Families.” Stanford: Stanford University Press.
