Chooose TWO (ONLY TWO) of the four prompts below and write discussion in paragrah form of 250 words.
YOU choose which Two you want to write about & write a discussion of 250 words IN TOTAL. Not 250 each, 250 for BOTH.
1. Justify why the cultural practice of eating seal blubber among many indigenous populations in the Arctic is both an evoked culture and a transmitted culture.
2. On Planet Belia, two civilizations (the Edinia and the Elash) have coexisted for centuries in the same environmental context. Both civilizations have marriage rituals (for this question, assume that marriage rituals can only be either monogamous or polygamous). You know that Edinians believe that polygamy is generally better than monogamy, so there are more polygamists than monogamists in Edinia. To determine whether evoked culture or transmitted culture plays a bigger role in affecting marriage rituals, you visit Edinia and Elash and
try to find the proportion of marriages that are monogamous versus polygamous. Draw a bar graph of what your data would look like if evoked culture plays a bigger role than transmitted culture.
3.Your professor wants to upload a video of talking horses, and he wants it to go “viral” (i.e., spread very quickly to many people). Based on the different factors that cause ideas to spread, give examples of what the video would need to include for it to have the highest likelihood of spreading.
4. Vancouver has many different neighborhood areas, including Richmond and Strathcona. Richmond is politically more conservative, while Strathcona is politically more liberal. Create an account based on dynamic social impact theory to explain how these different neighborhoods seem to have different forms of political culture.
