Leveling and Non-Leveling Mechanisms

As is my M.O. on this blog, this post is partly inspired (positive peer pressure) by a recent tweet by Jason Antrosio pointing readers to an older post of his that reflects on the use of Shakespeare in the Bush in teaching lower level anthropology courses. I saw said tweet just after I had finished using another anthro-reader classic, Richard Lee’s “Eating Christmas in the Kalahari” in my 101 section, which worked well as a successful device to talk about important aspects of participant-observation.
