Questions for Omi and Winant’s (2015) Racial Formation in the United States”, pages 105-136 and 253-269:
Interpret the following quote: “Race is not something rooted in nature, something that reflects clear and discrete variations in human identity. But race is also not an illusion. While it may not be “real” in a biological sense, race is indeed real as a social category with definite social consequences” (Omi and Winant 2015, page 110).
How do Omi and Winant define the term racial formation? What are the historical origins of the concept of race?
How do Omi and Winant (2015) conceptualize racism and anti-racism? (Keep in mind how their definition of racism may be different from the everyday use of the term).
What is colorblindness? How do Omi and Winant explain its origins? How do they critique it?
What are the different forms of “race-consciousness?” Note how they are distinct both from colorblindness and from one another.
Omi and Winant’s (2015) book was written over 5 years ago, before the election of President Trump in 2016. Thinking about the last few years, do you think that ‘colorblindness’ is still the dominant racial ideology in American society? Why or why not.
Questions for Cornell and Hartmann (1998), Ethnicity and Race, pages 102-113:7. Why and how did slavery in the U.S. destroy the ethnic identities of African peoples and replace them with an overarching racial identity?8. What role did blacks play in developing a common racial identity and community during slavery and its aftermath?9. How, and to what extent, did whites’ subordination of Native American peoples change their identities? How did this differ from the construction of black identity?10. What role did Native American peoples play in maintaining or transforming their tribal and racial identities?

Write a report on anthropology
Sociology Assignment Help My request:
1.I am a Korean student, so the professor’s request may require a report on the study of anthropology in Korea.
2.Pay attention to your grammar to facilitate my translation
3.First, interview one person is enough.
Second,The interview can include Korean etiquette, religion, work, architecture, traditional festival?etc. What changes have taken place now and in the past.
Third,You don’t need to put the interview at the front. You can divide the interview into parts in this report.
1. A Cultural Anthropology Report Using Life History Research
3. In-depth interviews (90 minutes recommended) with family or close acquaintances, and her/his life is illuminated as a social being by connecting with social conditions or major discourses at the time, focusing on ‘work’.
4. The composition of the article is autonomously determined by referring to life history studies.
The purpose of this article is to deeply understand a point in modern Korean society through a person’s narrative.
The writing format allows and freely selects any way to effectively achieve this purpose.
5. Good things to consider.
-When conducting an interview, look at the entire life.
-When moving the interview contents to the report, it is also good to illuminate a specific time.
– Here, work includes not only work and occupation, but also all the things in the production and reproduction process that occur in social relationships.
-Connect and think about what choices an individual makes and what values they have with social variables and structures.
Referring to the entire life, we train to analyze the temporal and spatial context of modern-Korean society in which the person has lived and the social discourse of the time.
-Let’s analyze what we learned anew through one life history and what it can mean with anthropological knowledge.
-Describe important points rather than list them superficially as complex and rich as possible.
1. Part 1(work)
My grandpa said he……..(about work)
then write we can know what things can we know from his experience( The change of Employment opportunities, wage and work pressure )
Here is a document you can refer to. You don’t have to write too profound?Just make it like a report written by an ordinary college student
btw ,Take my friend’s grandfather as the subject of the interview.
Thanks a lot!
