Paper details Paper Topic: Mission: Analyze a topic of your choosing through the lens of anthropology. Base your analysis on the topics, debates, and concepts we studied in our readings. I am focusing my paper on the surge in Anti- Asian hate crimes. Since the start of the pandemic, Asian hate crimes have surged in the United States. Crimes include verbal harassment and physical assault with perpetrators.
The goal is to connect a chapter in the book Gods of the Upper-Air: How a Circle of Renegade Anthropologists Reinvented Race, Sex, and Gender in the Twentieth Century to the topic I mentioned above. I will attach the book below. The chapter you have to connect it to is chapter 8 “The coming of age”. The paper should be mainly centered around the concept of “cultural relativism” and also touch on ideas of ethnocentrism based on the topic and the chapter, Thank you!
