wards the most significant aspects of this course module—this is not  meant to be a comprehensive review of the course materials  covered by this exam. Questions on material outlined here may show up  on the exam so please review your lecture notes and readings.  What is alterity? According to Fredrik Barth, what role does alterity play in  the creation of cultural differences? Why is “Orientalism” an example of  alterity? Producing or imagining people who are others, who are different from  yourself, who do things differently, who have different values, look different,  etc.  The basic argument is that in order to naturalize a set of beliefs, a position in society or a cultural aspect, its necessary to construct or produce an other. What is “race” and why can we say that is it culturally constructed (what  evidence demonstrates that it is not a biological reality)? On the flip side,  what is biological determinism? What is the “one drop rule”? To whom was it  applied? Race is a social construct, we can say that it’s a cultural construct because  genetics has it for people’s skin tones to be different so they can better  adapt to the environment around them. Think of the cenus from the US in the 19th century. The One drop rule is that if you have one drop of black blood,  you are considered to be black. Biological determinism refers to the idea  that all human behavior is innate, determined by genes, brain size, or other  biological attributes. This theory stands in contrast to the notion that human  behavior is determined by culture or other social forces. According to Starn, what do Tiger Woods and the media’s treatment of him  tell us about contemporary American ideas about race, sex and the body?  Why is golf a good sport for thinking about race in America? What is the  history of African Americans’ participation in the sport? How did the image of Tiger Woods contest dominant ideologies of race and athleticism in the US?  How was Woods’ media image also shaped by dominant racial ideologies? What is “gender” and how is it different from “sex”? Why is cross-cultural  research important for studying the cultural construction of gender? Why is  the “body” important for thinking about power and gender differences? What does it mean for something to be embodied? Sex is referred to as the biological traits of the genitals on a human. Gender  is a cultural construction in which to describe sex. It’s important to cross cultural research for this construction because the US is the only country to think that there are two types of genders. It is a western idea to cross and  use sex and gender interchangeably. Where as in a country like India in the  south, they have the Hijas where they are a third gender. The body is  important because it seen and thought of the male having more power over  the female. The female has always been represented as something fragile  and feminine. For something to be embodied it means to reflect but also  transform social reality.  What is “class”? What things define an individual’s “class”? How are class  distinctions represented through taste? What are Bourdieu’s four capitals and how is each defined? What are the three types of cultural capital? What does Bourgois argue about the cultural capital of crack dealers in East Harlem? Class is a group of people with similar power, prestige and wealth. Some of  the things that define and individual’s class is how much economical  resources they have, how much of a social standing they have, how much  political influence they have.  Things that are sought after in a social formation what we like and  what we don’t like/  Bourdieus four capitals are Social, Economic, Cultural and Symbolic.  Having economic resources is the most important.  Cultural is how much knowledge we have access to  Symbolic is Resources that are available to a person based on things like  honor, prestige, recognition. Social was how the individual got along with others in a social gathering.
