Your post: at least 1 page, single-spaced.
Citations: You need to cite course materials in your post but there is no need to attach a bibliography.
Do NOT quote materials–paraphrase only. Its good practice!!! I expect to see reference to all of the materials mentioned here, and then some!!
TOPIC: the nature of stratification
Address each of these questions separately and include make connections to the book, lecture, and or films. For each question include at least 2 citations to course materials based on those connections.
1. How do anthropologists define stratification and inequality (social hierarchy)? How do the advent of agriculture, food surplus and the formation of states related to stratification and inequality?
2. Explain three major factors identified by Jared Diamond in Guns, Germs and Steel that contribute to inequities across the globe.
