16. Patterns

In Cultural Anthro 2022 after discussing “Politics and Power” we read chapter 11, “Living Theory” in Gods of the Upper Air.

There is a lot of good stuff about Margaret Mead in this chapter, which will go well with our next class on “Gender and Sexuality.”

I am also interested in Ruth Benedict’s Patterns of Culture (263) and how King remarks that “it would become arguably the most cited and most taught work of anthropological grand theory ever” (267).
