FAMILY: AN INSTITUTION OF CULTURE AND PART OF HUMAN
Family is one kind of social micro unit. Most of the time when a person thinks of the definition of a family, the image of a mother, father and children is what comes into the mind. That is actually the definition of a nuclear family, which is parents, and one or more children.
CONCEPTS OF CULTURE
It is the holistic emphasis of cultural anthropology that distinguishes it most clearly from other related disciplines. For example, an anthropologist may focus his or her research on a particular dimension of culture, such as religion or political organization, but that dimension will also be described in terms of its relationship to the "complex whole" of the local culture.
RELATIONSHIP OF GEAN,HUMAN BODY AND ANTHROPOLOGY
In modern sense, by ‘evolution’ is meant any change in the heredetary endowments. An understanding of the biological processes all for understanding the concept of ‘GENE’ which is vital to life process.
RESEARCH AND LIFE HISTORY: FACING THE CHALLENGES OF NEW ETHNOGRAPHY
Symbolic interactionism developed from the same tradition and yielded several excellent sociological ethnographies, including Shared Fantasy by Gary Alan Fine, which documents the early history of fantasy role-playing games. But even though many sub-fields and theoretical perspectives within sociology use ethnographic methods, ethnography is not the sine of the discipline, as it is in cultural anthropology.
AUTONOMY OF RURAL WOMEN IN PEASANT COMMUNITIES
In the backdrop of such development it remains to address the dimension of autonomy so far as rural women are concerned. Arguably peasants still nourish conservative attitudes to folk women. Structural and symbolic violence originating from custom, scriptures and pre-existing values tend to undermine women's autonomous status at home and outside the residential locus.
STRUCTURALISM AND LEVI-STRAUSS: A SCIENTIFIC REVOLUTION IN ANTHROPOLOGICAL PARADIGM
In the very beginning of anthropology, the theorists believed in the universality of cultural stages stemming from the psychic unity of mankind. When anthropology developed as an empirical science, evolutionism was replaced by functionalism negating the prior assumption. Later in the mid-twentieth century French anthropologist as well as philosopher Levi-Strauss introduced a new and different theoretical model in the study of culture named ‘Structuralism’.
1947: PARTITION OF SELF, LIFE AND IDENTITY
More recently, revisionist historiography and anthropology, as well as state governments, have begun to examine the experience of refugees and migrants, focusing particularly on the experiences of ordinary people, women and children, who were witness to violence and who became refugees of Partition.
CURRENT THEORETICAL TRENDS IN ANTHROPOLOGY
However, as a scientific discipline anthropology is equipped with different concepts, theories and methods and with the involvement of biologists, scientists and other scholars anthropological thought started to develop more full-fledgedly in the middle of the 19th century.
COMMERCIAL SEX WORKERS IN URBAN BANGLADESH
The situation of prostitution practices by commercial sex workers in a traditional, illiterate and Islamic bonded society like Bangladesh is much more severe and discriminated in a very unintended manner.
CULTURAL IMPERIALISM: AN EMPIRICAL STUDY ON THE POST-COLONIAL DISCOURSE IN ANTHROPOLOGY
At present, along with its conventional field of research, anthropology has turned its attentions towards information technology, digital revolution, globalization, capitalism, imperialism, and aggression etc. and their cultural construction in a new unipolar world.
'ABSENCES AND SEAMLESS WHOLES': ISSUES OF GLOBALIZATION AND IMPERIALISM IN STUDIES OF BANGLADESH SOCIETY AND CULTURE
Bangladesh scholars dealing with the colonial period have largely looked at imperialism as an economic system and have relied on the notion of exploitation to examine processes of inequality; these particular conceptualizations have contributed to the absence of a critical examination of social and cultural processes in eastern Bengal during the colonial period.
UNITY OF ANTHROPOLOGY AS A BIO-SOCIAL SCIENCE
Food is a culture specific phenomenon which is never devised by a community from the view point of biological consideration. Even when a food habit becomes part of a cultural system, its inventors never work it out from careful nutritional values.
LATE IMPERIALISM: IS GLOBALIZATION OF TERROR ITS HIGHEST STAGE?
These relations and the rules of their reproduction are the defining features of globalization but dictated by the premises and parameters of imperialism itself embodied in the policies and actions pursued by the USA.
It is quite apparent that a society cannot develop a viable political system when most of its members are politically apathetic, since it puts a brake on political motivation. New nation states are in the urgent need of creating a healthy political motivation.
INDIGENOUS KNOWLEDGE: HIDDEN TRANSCRIPT
The scholars will, hopefully, shed light on this hidden transcript for appropriate documentation and dissemination with an objective to incorporate in project planning, at least at micro levels. Against this backdrop.
