To Week 1: Getting Started

Why Anthropology of Europe?

I still communicate weekly, usually via FaceBook, with students participating in the UMD Study in England Programme almost 40 years ago, and they still say their year in England with the UMD Programme was the best year of their lives.

Last summer I looked at 71 on-line photographs of Santorini, Greece, taken by one of those students in June 2021. The photographer's love of global cultures and global traveling started in England and thrives to this day.

We'll start off and finish the course in the village of Kypseli on Santorini.

A senior citizen taking this course a few years ago commented after the first week of class, "Now I know what I saw when I visited Santorini."

Santorini is only of many interesting places we'll visit.

Most people live a richer and better life when they are a globally competent person.

And, as Greta Thunberg poignantly tells us, in just the time since the days when the Santorini photographer first visited England so many years ago, we have all become global citizens--like it or not. Think COVID. Think global warming. Think world hunger. Think geopolitics. Think almost any area in which you have an interest, like social justice, or marketing, or investing your hard-earned money; most have global components.

The world is our hometown in the universe. Get to know it. Get to love it. Get to be able to help address the significant global issues of our time.

This course aims to foster public engagement that connects us with the world.

And it's a fun course.

    An "etic" ethnological 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.

    (39 min., 1974, UM DULUTH Martin Library Video Cassette VC 4926)
    • 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

    ~

      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 importance to the men is . . . while women. . . ."

      "The least important 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.

    I. Introduction

    [more information on an Introduction]

    Put an introductory statement here, explaining the nature of your case study. Include at the end a transitional statement about finding an item of interest that's a good example of some current trend or new discovery.

     

     


    Kypseli  N




    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 Strategies"
    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,  UM DULUTH Martin Library Video Cassette 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.




      Use the Paradigm Online Writing Assistant
      or The Purdue University Online Writing Lab

    III. Conclusions

    Put your conclusions here.



    Kypseli  N

     

    Works Cited
    (or "References")
    (but not "Bibliography"

    Your "References" or "Works Cited" information should go on a separate page

    See "Citing Electronic or Internet Resources" for information on how to cite items from the web

    References should all be double-spaced

     

    You must list videotapes and movies in your "References" section if you movies used them in your work

    In APA (American Psychological Association) style reference a movie or video as follows:

     

    Hoffman, Susanna. M. (Director). (1973). Kypseli: Women

        and Men aparta Divided Reality [Film].
        Distributed by Extension Media Center.
        Berkeley, CA: University of California.
                 
    • 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

    About Kypseli and the Comparative Approach

    (Kypseli Discussion)

    • 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 ethnological approach)

      • Argaki, in Cyprus (an emic approach, in the film Life Chances by Peter Loizos)

      • 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

    Many Ways to See the World:
    Selective Attention

    One of the five main characteristics of American Anthropology is fieldwork, "a primary research technique, involving “participant observation," which usually means living among the people one is interested in learning from and about. And fieldwork, almost above everything else, requires attentive observation and recording of information.

    Much of what we are going to do for the rest of the semester is "fieldwork" via video materials from around the world. Before we get into the video-intensive part of the course (towards the middle and end), take the Selective Attention Test (below) developed by Daniel Simons and Christopher Chabris. This should give you a little insight into the nature of observing—which lies at the very heart of anthropological fieldwork.

    See also "An Important Note on Videos and Visual Anthropology".

     

    First, take the . . .

    Selective Attention Test

    <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJG698U2Mvo>

    Read and follow the directions carefully.
    (Be sure to also count the bounce passes.)


     Selective Attention Test


    Be sure to try your very best to follow the instructions.

    (It's short, less than a minute and a half).

     

    When you are finished with the Selective Attention Test, watch . . .

    The Monkey Business Illusion
    <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGQmdoK_ZfY>

    (It too is short: 1:42)

    Again, read and follow the directions carefully.

    (And as with THe Selective Attention Test, be sure to also count the bounce passes.)

     The Monkey Business Illusion

     

    (4) After you have taken Simon and Chabris' tests, think about how what you learned from them about perception might be applied as you view the videos for the rest of the semester as well as the cultural behaviors in real life as you roam the world thereafter


    The main purpose of this exercise is to sensitize you to the fact that everyone views things selectively—”quite naturally, and maybe even by necessity. And one's culture plays a huge role in what one "sees" and focuses on (and what one doesn't see and focus on). American men, for e.g., most often do not "see" many details of clothing, color, and personal stylistic adornment (read hair styles, nail treatment, cosmetic adornments and the like).

    To view things as a trained observer as anthropologists must do when they're in the field "doing" anthropology one must almost constantly be aware of this natural / cultural tendency to perceive things selectively, and try to compensate for it by paying attention to items not otherwise selected for, while at the same time being careful "not to miss anything".

    Hopefully, this exercise will make you just a little more critical in the way you look at things—”and especially the class videos—”for the rest of the semester (and maybe even for the rest of your life, for that matter).

    You are not expected anything to submit anything—no reaction, or report, or forum posting. This is a "re-vision" activity, and it should benefit you in performing well in the exams and overall for the course. And hopefully it will also help on your way to having a genuine anthropological perspective on life in general.

    Greetings from Punxsutawney
    Groundhog Day

    Today’s a big day in PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pennsylvania. About 7:30 this morning (ET) Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his winter’s nap at a place called Gobbler’s Knob and—communicating in his native language, groundhogese, a language understood only by the local Groundhog Club president—Phil reported that he couldn’t find his shadow, heralding an early spring. (In fact, he was looking for a mate.)

    For the latest up-to-date coverage and reports see . . .

    Groundhog Day 2022 Guide

    Phil predicts early spring is coming

    – USAtoday (2 February 2020)

    Punxsutawney Phil
     
     
    The groundhogese interpreter also reported that Phil thinks we should pay more attention to Greta Thunberg .

    Greta Thunberg on FaceBook

    The Groundhog Day celebration is rooted in a German superstition that says if a hibernating animal casts a shadow on February 2nd, winter will last another six weeks.

    If no shadow is seen, legend says, spring will come early.” Thousands show up for the event each year in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania (and other places around the country).

    Others point out that the February 2nd tradition predicting the arrival of spring actually predates any groundhog link, stretching back to the ancient Christian holiday of Candlemas. According to an old English rhyme:

    “If Candlemas Day be fair and bright,
    Winter will have another flight;
    But if it be dark with clouds and rain,
    Winter is gone, and will not come again.”

    David Maxwell/European Pressphoto Agency

    In 2013 Ohio prosecutors ‘indicted’ Punxsutawney Phil over early spring forecast, seek death penalty

    "In 2013, Phil issued a forecast for an early spring, but bitter cold and snow gripped the eastern U.S. into March that year.  The prosecuting attorney in Butler County, Ohio went as far as to seek the death penalty for Phil for “misrepresentation of early spring” before a Pennsylvania law firm came to Phil’s defense, claiming the Ohio attorney had no jurisdiction to prosecute the Groundhog." -- The Washing Post, 02 February 2015

    This course is governed by the . . .

    <http://d.umn.edu/academic-affairs/academic-policies/classroom-policies/student-academic-integrity

    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)

    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.

    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.
