Culture, Myth and Symbolism

Question 1. Answer either question (1000 words worth 13 marks)

  1. In ‘The temporality of the landscape’ Tim Ingold writes that ‘The landscape is not “space” (2000:191). Explain what he means by this and then, drawing on at least two other course readings, consider how his argument might be useful for understanding myth.

OR

  1. Michael Jackson exemplifies a shift in focus in anthropology when he writes that “Dance and music move us to participate in a world beyond our accustomed roles, and to recognise ourselves as members of a community, a common body” (1983:338). Giving attention to the ethnography of emotion discuss this statement using examples from at least two of the course readings.

Question 2. Answer both questions (600 words each worth 6 marks each)

  1. In later life Claude Lévi-Strauss commented that ‘the simple opposition between mythology and history which we are accustomed to make – is not at all a clear cut one’ (1995:40). How does the ethnography you have read this semester support his view?

AND

  1. In your own words give an account of what constitutes the anthropology of myth at the present time. You may wish to contrast this with an earlier period in anthropology. Reference the Course reader to make your case.
