1.This week we are exploring how various cultures understand power and authority. Cultures organize power in different ways. We will also be examining the concepts of race and ethnicity. Since all human beings have culture and ethnicity, hopefully this conversation will help us understand our own ethnicity and our relationship with the concept of race. All of this fits in well with inequality, since power and ethnicity are often used by cultures as things that contribute to inequality.
2.We all participate in ritual (Pledge of Allegiance, Attending Worship, singing “Take me out to the Ballgame” at a baseball game). This week we will examine different ways that cultures participate in ritual, various types of ritual, various categories of religious belief, and the benefits of religion and ritual.
