Culture, Language, and ThoughtAnthropology 3002     Spring 2013 (Almost final DRAFT)Final Review        The final exam will include 100 questions covering the course content since the midterm and 50 questions recycled from the midterm. (In some cases, there will be slight changes of wording of the questions from the midterm.) All of the questions will be answerable with a single symbol or letter of the alphabet. Sometimes these will be analogous to fill-in-the-blank questions, other times to matching questions or short answer questions. To cut down the burden of memorization, you may bring to the exam two 8.5″ by 11″ sheets of paper with whatever handwritten notes you want on it. (It will probably be useful to bring the notes sheet you created for the midterm to the final exam.) I expect that definitions of key terms and descriptions of the main points of articles would be useful.The exam will cover the following topics from the second half of the course.Sentence CompletionKnow the definition, significance, and (when relevant) examples of the following terms:relativist, universalist, mapping, circumplex model of affect (emotion), core relational theme, lek (Balinese), popokl (Melpa), schadenfreude (German), intra-cultural variation, cross-cultural variation, emotional valence, appraisal theory of emotions, action tendency, theory of mind.Be familiar with the arguments made by the following authors:Boster: Emotion Categories Across LanguagesBoster and Maltseva: A Crystal Seen From Each of its Vertices: European Views of European National CharactersEkman: Universals and Cultural Differences in Facial Expressions of EmotionGerber: Rage and Obligation: Samoan Emotion in Conflict.Heider: Landscapes of Emotion: Mapping Three Cultures of Emotion in IndonesiaJohnstone and Scherer: Vocal Communication of Emotion.Lazarus: Emotion and AdaptationPlutchik: A General Psychoevolutionary Theory of Emotion.Romney, Moore, and Rusch: Cultural Universals: Measuring the Semantic…
