Analysing the Vancouver Riots HSP3M: Introduction to Anthropology, Psychology and Sociology Purpose: Students will write a 5 page report applying key ideas and concepts from the course expectations and apply them to Vancouver Riot of June 15, 2011. Students will identify some of the contributing factors and how anthropologists, psychologists and sociologists would explain the behaviour displayed that day. Overall Expectations: -demonstrate an understanding of the social forces that influence and shape behaviour as described by anthropologists, psychologists, and sociologists; -analyse socialization patterns from the perspectives of anthropology, psychology, and sociology. Specific Expectations: – evaluate the major contributions to our understanding of the idea of self in relation to others made by at least one of the leading practitioners in each of anthropology (e.g., Franz Boas, Margaret Mead, Ruth Benedict), psychology (e.g., Sigmund Freud, Jean Piaget, Karen Horney), and sociology (e.g., George Herbert Mead, Irving Goffman). – analyse the role of the mass media in influencing individual and group behaviour; – explain why behaviour varies depending on context and on the individuals involved (e.g., at work, within a family, in sports, in a crowd, in a large city or small town). – identify the primary and secondary agents of socialization (e.g., family, school, peers, media,work) and evaluate their influence; – demonstrate an understanding of anthropological, psychological, and sociological theories that deal with socialization (e.g., enculturation, nature versus nurture, social isolation); – evaluate the role of cultural influences in socialization (e.g., as they affect gender expectations).
