Comparison on the anthropological evidence about race

Comparison on the anthropological evidence about race

As we talk about race and human biological variation this week, you should consider your own assumptions and how they compare to the anthropological evidence about race.

Many people believe that race is biologically based. As we’ll be discussing this week, contemporary anthropologists strongly argue against this notion. As a starting point to consider how race is socially constructed instead of biologically based, complete the following  activity:

Then write two or three paragraphs explaining what these activities were like for you and what you learned from them. Submit your paragraphs through this assignment link.

2.

Explain, using your own words, each of the four evolutionary processes which can change allele frequency in a population (gene flow, genetic drift, natural selection, and mutation).

Then use one or more of those processes to explain why a high proportion of the sickling allele is maintained in certain human populations and not others. NOTE: Many students struggle with this question. This sheet of tips should help: Tips about the Sickle Cell Allele.pdfPreview the document Settings.  This assignment must be two full paragraph. 

Your post must be written in your own words. Remember to name your sources. If you summarize something from the textbook, you can say, “according to our textbook.” However, if you use quotes from the textbook or any other source, be sure to put them in quotation marks, state where they are from, and include the page number.

3.

Explain what each of the following terms means and how they differ: species, population, race, and cline.

Then answer the following: What does it mean to say that “race is a cultural (or social) construct, not a biological construct”? Why is this understanding important?

Finally, how are race and biology connected from a biocultural perspective? Share any examples you are familiar with that illustrate this connection.

This can be a sensitive and taboo topic in American culture. Additionally, everyone has had different conversations about race in their past experiences, so a variety of perspectives will surely be expressed. Please be sure to remain professional and respectful as you share and read other perspectives.

Be sure to read Chapter 3 of the textbook, watch the assigned film, and watch the mini-lecture for this week before completing this discussion.
