Kinship and Gender 6th edition
Ethnology and Anthropology. Course objectives: Introduction to fundamental theoretical and methodological issues, approaches and results of anthropological study of kinship, marriage, gender relations and sexuality, as well as different cultural conceptualization of these relations. Course description: For now almost a century and a half, research of kinship occupies a central position in anthropological research. History of anthropological thought on kinship reveals the theoretical and epistemological shifts that are noticeable specifically from the seventies. The result of these changes is the redefinition of the domains and areas of research and the review of fundamental principles, notions and concepts in the context of the new orientation and knowledge.
Describe ways in which gender and sexuality organize and structure the societies in which we live. Assess the range of possible ways of constructing gender and sexuality by sharing examples from different cultures, including small-scale societies. Analyze how anthropology as a discipline is affected by gender ideology and gender norms. Living in the twenty-first century, we have witnessed how rapidly and dramatically culture can change, from ways of communicating to the emergence of same-sex marriage. Similarly, many of us live in culturally diverse settings and experience how varied human cultural inventions can be.

Connecting kinship with gender, Linda Stone focuses on human reproduction and the social and cultural implications of male and female reproductive roles. Her insightful narrative introduces new ways of approaching and understanding cross-cultural variations. Stone provides coverage of the field of kinship at the introductory level, but she also explores the major issues and debates in the study of the interrelation of gender and culture. The book reviews studies of primate kinship, considers ideas about the evolution of human kinship, and looks at kinship and gender in relation to different modes of descent, as illustrated by seven in-depth ethnographic case studies.
She weaves current cross-cultural stories and illustrations throughout the text to show how kinship values ground an individual in society. In addition to exploring the diversity of gendered relationships, Stone provides mechanisms that allow students to understand why particular gender roles develop in particular societies. In offering an argument for the combining of 'kinship' and 'gender' into one domain of inquiry, it represents an invitation to students and scholars alike to revitalize kinship studies by drawing on gender scholarship. Now with additional material on contemporary social problems, this book is more user-friendly than ever. King, University of Kentucky.
