n‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ this four-part written assignment you will be reading a book-length ethnography (Deeply Rooted in the Present by Mary Lorena Kenny). You will write one section of this essay in each module of the course, but you should think about it as ONE essay that you continue to build on as we read additional sections of the book. The main focus of this four-part assignment is for you to apply the general concepts presented in our textbook Selected Perspectives to the ethnographic case study in Kenny's book. Thus, each section of the paper should incorporate ideas, concepts, materials, and references we are covering in the relevant module. The final complete essay, submitted in M4, should evidence your mastery of the substantive content of this course. Each section of the essay will be graded separately. NOTE: You should not do additional research beyond the course materials for this assignment. YOUR ESSAY IS NOT A SUMMARY OF THE BOOK, but is a discussion of the book's contribution to the study of anthropology. In your essay, it is essential that you connect Kenny's book to the readings and materials in each module. Part 3: Apply what we've learned about globalization, economics and sustainability in Selected Perspective (and other Module 3 materials) to how Kenny discusses these issue‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍s in Deeply Rooted in the Present. Please use the following questions as a guide: How do issues raised in Kenny's book connect to course readings, materials, and/or discussions in Module 3? In particular, how does Kenny address and explain issues of economics, globalization, and/or sustainability in her book? Identify specific examples. Can you apply any of Appardurai's 5 -scapes to Kenny's book? Use references to course readings, materials, concepts, terms, etc. to support your points, particularly the materials found in Module 3. Part 3 of your essay should be 3-5 pages in length (approx. 900-1500 words) double-spaced (12 pt. font). Be sure to proofread for errors in spelling, typing, grammar, word usage and writing mechanics.
