Sociology of Food                    Spring, 2018                Exam 2 Essay Questions
 
Due Date: Hard copy due in class on Wednesday, .   Please do NOT submit electronically.
 
Your essays should be written in sentence (not outline) form, consisting of no more (and not much less) than two pages.   In each essay, take care to answer the question(s), the whole question(s) and nothing but the question(s).    And, any example you use should appear in no more than one essay.
 
Write in 12-point font, double space, and use standard margins (that is, similar if not identical to1 ½ inch left and right; 1 inch top and bottom).
 
Begin each essay on a separate page.  Title EACH essay on a SINGLE line with the HEADING shown below, followed by your NAME.    Submit the essays in one stapled document, with pages in the proper order.
 
Be careful to do your own work, and to write in your own words.  Substantial similarity between a student’s work and the work of another student or published source available online or elsewhere will be taken as evidence of academic dishonesty.
 
Essay 1.  HEADING: Ingroups and Outgroups.
What are ingroups? What are outgroups?  In your answer, be sure to discuss not only what in- and outgroups are, but what groups are in general.  What role does ethnocentrism play in relations between in- and outgroups?  Finally, illustrate the role of ethnocentrism with one (long) or two (shorter) examples that have to do with food.  Best grades will be given for examples never mentioned in class or in assigned readings.
 
Essay 2.  HEADING: Simmel on Food.
Georg Simmel claimed that group conflict can be a basis for group cohesion.  First, discuss what Simmel means by this claim.  Then, illustrate how the process might work with respect to a conflict having to do with food.  Be specific, drawing on Harris’s book and/or your own imagination for an example.   Best grades will be given for examples never mentioned in class.
 
Essay 3: HEADING: Durkheim on Food.
Emile Durkheim claimed that deviance is functional.  First, discuss what Durkheim  means by this claim.  Then, illustrate how the process might work with respect to a deviance having to do with food.  Be specific, drawing on Harris’s book and/or your own imagination for an example.   Best grades will be given for examples never mentioned in class.
