An "etic" visit to Kypseli, Santorini, Greece

Note: This is a truly classic film in Anthropology, and as such it represents the "ethnographic present"—a practice in anthropology of treating things in whatever time or past era as if they were that way today.

Obviously, things have changed in Kypseli, and in the other Greek villages that we will have a look at in the coming weeks.

I will talk about the changes next time, after you have written your first impressions down.

For the present, treat Kypseli in the "ethnographic present"—we'll look at the "real" present and the future in the future.

An "etic" visit to Kypseli, Santorini, Greece

Thursday, 22 January 2015
Week 01 Day 02
video:

Kypseli: Women and Men Apart—A Divided Reality
(41 min., 1973/1987, VC 3286)

and your Case Study of it

course viewing guide

Men in Kypseli, Santorini, Greece.
Kypseli, Santorini,
Greece

  • Length: 5 - 6 well-written pages, including one title page and one "Works Cited" (or "References") page . . .

    • Title Page (a separate page)

    • 3-4 Pages of text
      (following one of the writing strategies below, or a combination of the strategies)

    • one separate "References" (or "Works Cited") Page (see below)

      [this should NOT be called "Bibliography"]
        
        
    • You must turn in 5 - 6 pages of well-written description and personal reaction

      Shorter and/or perhaps not-so-well-written papers will be returned for revision

    • If you "run out of stuff" to say or write about, then you will be required, on your own, to view the video again in the Library
Week 3 Day 6 we will have a look at an EMIC view of a Greek Village: Life Chances: Four Families in a Changing Cypriot Village
(39 min., 1974, VC 4926)
~

 

Suggested Strategies:

  • Journalist's Questions
 
  • Who
 
(descriptive)
 
 
  • What
 
(descriptive)
 
 
  • When
 
(descriptive)
 
 
  • Where
 
(descriptive)
 
     
 
  • How
 
(analytic)
 
 
  • Why
 
(analytic)
 
 


And you can do this for more than one subtopic

For example, you could have one set of "Journalist's Questions" for women's reality and a separate set for men's reality

And you could have still another for widows, etc., . . .


  • Time Sequence

    T1 ---> T2 ---> T3 ---> T4 ---> . . .

    (In this case T1, etc., can equal scenes in the video, for example)


  • Space Sequence

    S1 ---> S2 ---> S3 ---> S4 ---> . . .

    (In this case S1, etc., could equal the spacial scenes in the video)

    (In other cases -- but not so easy to do with the information provided in this film -- with S1, etc., you could describe situations East to West, for example)


  • N number of items

    "Ten itms define the importance of. . . .

    First, . . . .
    Second, . . . ."
    Third, . . . ."
    Finally, . . . ."

  • Most Important ---> Least Important:

    "The most important partition of . . . between Kypseli men and women is. . . ."

    "Next in importantance to the men is . . . while women. . . ."

    "The least importantant to the men in Kypseli is . . . while women. . . ."

  • Comparison / Contrast

    Note how things are the same and how they are different. In the Kypseli case, a logical comparison / contrast would be with / between "The Divided Reality" of the women's world and the men's world.

II. Body

[Give this section an interesting subtitle, something other than "Body"]

Describe and discuss your chosen topic(s) here. (If you do a comparison / contrast paper you will need more than one topic, otherwise a single topic is fine.)

Use some form of organizational structure, like one or more of the
"Suggested Stragegies"
above



For this assignment your "Body" could be made up of two parts:


A. A summary of the contents
of Kypseli: Women and Men aparta Divided Reality
(41 min., 1987,  VC 3286)




B. Your response / evaluation
of Kypseli

Your own personal response to and evaluation of the film is required, and you should do this response in such a way that when you look at this paper in two and a half months you will be able to recall your initial reactions/thoughts.

  • WRITING GUIDE -- Sociology-Anthropology

  •   
  • Generally speaking, it is a good idea to sit down and expand on your notes and as soon as possible after you have taken them. (If you are working on an interview rather than looking at video go somewhere close by immediately after the interview and write up your notes.) Expanding on your notes is especially important if you can not see the video a second time (or if you did not tape an interview, or if you were not able to take notes during a real-life interview or incident).   

    So . . . it would be a good idea if, as soon as possible after class as you possibly can, you sit down somewhere and expand on your notes from the video seen today in class

Major Characteristics of Anthropology

Week 2 Memo


Your first version of Kypseli Case Study is due by Monday, 26 January 2015
 
Handout: "Anthropology and Its Parts"

About Kypseli and the Comparative Approach

  • Kypseli is part of a Comparative Approach to looking at Greece, especially rural Greece, and European Villages in General. We will be looking at . . .

    • Kypseli, on Santorini (an etic approach)
    • Vasilika, in central Greece (an emic approach, in the film Life Chances by Peter Loizos)
    • Vasilika, in central Greece (the textbook, by Ernestine Friedl)
    • Villages in the Republic of Ireland (the textbook, Nan)
    • Villages in Italy (A Crisis of Births, by Krause)

      And I will be adding materials from  . . . .

      • Stan Aschenbrenner's work in Karporfora
      • Thessalonikia (Salonika)
      • Duluth, Minnesota

      We will also look at be adding materials from  . . . .

      • Inish Óirr, in the Aran Islands, off the west coast of Ireland
      • Gyönk, and other villlages in Hungary
      • Italy
  • And I will be adding materials from  . . . .

    • villages in other parts of the Republic of Ireland, England, Scotland, Austria, and Italy
  • Questions about the case study project on Kypseli: Women and Men apart–a Divided Reality?


  • Or about the video Kypseli: Women and Men apart–a Divided Reality itself?
    (41 min., 1987,  VC 3286)

    • What changes have occurred since the making of the film?

      • Nationwide Greece has been under Austerity Programs imposed by the European Union (EU) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), since 2011.

      • In general, there has been an outmigration of the young people from the villages, largely to Athens

      • In some villages, and more so on the mainland, and especially where there is some tourism and/or small manufacturing facilities, (and in virtually all of the cities) there is an in-migration of individuals, especially from other EU countries

      • TVs have changed the nature of the gathering of the men in the evening at the local coffee shops

      • The internet is opening and expanding communication network

      • In some places grave sites are no longer recycled after three years

      • The outmigration has been going on a long time, and when those who have left reach retirement age (which tends to be younger in Europe) they sometimes return to their home village

        • sometimes to take care of elderly parents
        • but also because they can live there fairly cheaply on their pensions
        • and they might still own family property there

    • What is happening today in villages of Europe?

      • Prof. Willie Henderson in the Italian village he lives in during the summer . . .

Students in the past have commented that there is
TOO MUCH INFORMATION

available on the class Moodle and supporting WebSites.
Yes, there is a lot of information, no doubt about it, and it can be confusing at first. It’s helpful when starting out to remember that the required information for the course is contained in the middle panel of your Description: Moodle HomePage. The information in the sidebars and many of the links are there should you find those interesting and/or helpful; that material is not required.

Focus on the Main Palen of Moodle as these are Required items.

Greetings from Punxsutawney!



 Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter for 2014.

A little before 7:30 a.m. on 2 February 2014 Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, so we can comfortably settle in for our six more weeks of winter.  “The Groundhog Day celebration is rooted in a German superstition that says if a hibernating animal casts a shadow on Feb. 2, the Christian holiday of Candlemas, winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow is seen, legend says, spring will come early.”  Thousands showed up for the event.

Credit Options at UMD
<http://www.duluth.umn.edu/catalogs/current/pol_proc/credit_options.html>


This course is governed by the . . .

University of Minnesota Duluth Student Academic Integrity Policy
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/integrity/Academic_Integrity_Policy.htm>

UMD Office of Student and Community Standards
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/>

"Academic dishonesty tarnishes UMD's reputation and discredits the accomplishments of students. UMD is committed to providing students every possible opportunity to grow in mind and spirit. This pledge can only be redeemed in an environment of trust, honesty, and fairness. As a result, academic dishonesty is regarded as a serious offense by all members of the academic community. In keeping with this ideal, this course will adhere to UMD's Student Academic Integrity Policy, which can be found at [http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/integrity/Academic_Integrity_Policy.htm]. This policy sanctions students engaging in academic dishonesty with penalties up to and including expulsion from the university for repeat offenders." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)

and the UMD Student Conduct Code
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/code/>

and the

Student Conduct Code Statement (students' rights)
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/conduct/conduct-statement.html>

The instructor will enforce and students are expected to follow the University's Student Conduct Code [http://www1.umn.edu/regents/policies/academic/Student_Conduct_Code.html]. Appropriate classroom conduct promotes an environment of academic achievement and integrity. Disruptive classroom behavior that substantially or repeatedly interrupts either the instructor's ability to teach, or student learning, is prohibited. Disruptive behavior includes inappropriate use of technology in the classroom. Examples include ringing cell phones, text-messaging, watching videos, playing computer games, doing email, or surfing the Internet on your computer instead of note-taking or other instructor-sanctioned activities." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)

Instructor and Student Responsibilities Policy

AVISO!

A Note on Extra Credit Papers

Failure to comply with the above codes and standards when submitting an Extra Credit paper will result in a penalty commensurate with the lapse, up to and including an F final grade for the course, and, at a minimum, a reduction in total points no fewer than the points available for the Extra Credit project. The penalty will not simply be a zero for the project, and the incident will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards.

 

A Note on "Cutting and Pasting" without the Use of Quotation Marks
(EVEN IF you have a citation to the source somewhere in your paper)

If you use others' words and/or works you MUST so indicate that with the use of quotation marks. Failure to use quotation marks to indicate that the materials are not of your authorship constitutes plagiarism—even if you have a citation to the source elsewhere in your paper/work.

Patterned failure to so indicate that the materials are not of your own authorship will result in an F grade for the course.

Other instances of improper attribution will result in a 0 (zero) for the assignment (or a reduction in points equal to the value of an Extra Credit paper), and a reduction of one grade in the final grade of the course.

All incidents will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards as is required by University Policy.



Students with Disabilities

It is the policy and practice of the University of Minnesota Duluth to create inclusive learning environments for all students, including students with disabilities.  If there are aspects of this course that result in barriers to your inclusion or your ability to meet course requirements – such as time limited exams, inaccessible web content, or the use of non-captioned videos – please notify the instructor as soon as possible.  You are also encouraged to contact the Office of Disability Resources to discuss and arrange reasonable accommodations.  Please call 218-726-6130 or visit the DR website at www.d.umn.edu/access for more information.
