myths justify structure of authority
The answer should be based on close work with the texts and video assigned before the prompt, rather than your own personal opinions. Substantiate your answers with specific references to the texts and authors and audiovisual materials assigned.
a) Discuss the idea that myths justify present structures of authority. Is that the case with Nyoro myths? How do the Nunavut Animations Lab works relate to that claim? Does shadow puppet theater in Geertz’s article also function to support existing values and structures of authority?
b) What connections do you see between how an anthropologist would approach myth/folklore in “A Hindu Woman’s Sacred Narrative” and how an anthropologist would approach The Virgin of Guadalupe, described in Eric Wolf’s piece?
