Anthropology Optional 2018

Let us try to analyze the anthropology optional paper 2018.

To me :

Paper 1 was difficult and bit untoward

Paper 2 far simpler, but quite lengthy.

Comments

  • Attempted all but only 380-400 marks of good-decent quality.

    P1 i could write something but didn't have enough content to match the number of marks assigned.. ex : national character study
    2017 : P,M. Far from interview cutoff
    2018 : P,M*
    Anthropology - PM me if you're looking for any kind of collaboration for CSE 19 with anthro.
  • National character study1 only wrote margaret meads study and the fact that robert redfield tepoztalan...time was up. Expected - 3/15

  • Paper 2 :smile:

    Whole q8 superb quality
    Paper 1 case study q, also almost superb quality
    Paper 2 economy typology good
    Caste social stratification, good answer
    Impact of Buddhism jainism, good content but poor presentation answer

    Endangered languages good1 answer
    Ethnoarchaeology, good answer

    Paper 1 biological adaptation good answer
    Failed to mark axes of oxygen partial pressure graph in acclaimatization
    Failed to remeber hawaii systrm in kinship terminology, wrote 5, plus joking reln plus LH morgan classification descriptive
    Customary law, a lot of case studies given from maler to fiji tribes to nuer to agni society to inuits , so much anecdotal, with less theory, so expecting less marks

  • sabse sukha yahi subject ka thread pada hai...lagta hai sab anuman k anusar nhi hua....is baar upsc mood mein tha anthro ko le k :D :D

    sab apne answer daalo Qwise :s
  • what u al have written in
    1 molecular technique
    2 categorization of genes
    3 field methods in archaeology
    4 fecundity
  • anyone any idea about stratification v/s hierarchy question in paper 2?

    Wrote about field view of caste system. Earlier it was occupational divisions. Now it has a purity associated and a rank to each caste.

    1. Wrote crispr cas 9 etc. Mitochondrial DNA etc. Not sure about correctness
    2. Luxury genes, Lethal genes, Non Lethal

    but purity was associated earlier also?
    I have written some bhasad in this question but not dont know whether it makes much sense
    Ultimately did you agree with the statement?

    in molecular techniques vomited everything related to it like recombinant DNA tech, DNA fingerprinting, CRISPR CAS9, Yeascarta therapy, Human genome project etc

    See introduction in Deepankar Gupta's Social Stratification. Hierarchy is groups arranged one above other. Stratification can be one above another or side by side. Stratification = Hierarchy and Difference.

    i have started from 1901 archibald garrod ---alkaptunoria
    beadle and tantum---one gene one product
    after that---
    gel filteration,elctrophoresis,dna fingerprinting vntr,fish,pcr,crspr
    new medicines thats all

    Hierarchy - ghurye, dumont, ritual purity, marriot..stressed on dumonts concept of caste

    Srinivas and dominant caste. Hierarchy.

    Social stratification - vertical and horizontal. Firstly acted as occupational parameter. Hindu mode of tribal absorption. Although there is security of job, no prestige. Also, stratification possible since hierarchy. Fg bailey, caste is closed organic and stratified entity explanation

    Field method (didnt know much)

    stratification (soan and madrasonian techmique, one glacial other pluvial deposit)
    patination
    Pollen techniques
    Ethnoarchaeology, Tuskon project and kitchen mitten culture

    Baki aur 3 techmique tha, but failed to remember in exam hall. Expecting 5/15

    i wrote like
    archeology some faaltu defn and staring for creating some mahaul :D
    after that selection of sites using mapping etc
    khudai--horizontal vertical soan
    after material founding----artifacts---- age determiation-----direct indirect techniques...wrote 2 or 3
    \after that putting material in time chart of lartet classification
    for bone or other race classificatio chemical analysis
    culture determination ethnoarcheology

  • sabse sukha yahi subject ka thread pada hai...lagta hai sab anuman k anusar nhi hua....is baar upsc mood mein tha anthro ko le k :D :D

    sab apne answer daalo Qwise :s

    What is the meaning of this?
  • In tribe-caste continuum, how did you answer the present context side?
