when jousting recently with another poster, who was demanding scholarly standards of evidence, i started having ptsd flashbacks (smile) to my PhD writtens. for therapy, i started looking for them this morning but havent found them yet. did find a buncha term papers from grad school. so for any folks who werent even born yet, here is what we wrote term papers about in the early 1970s. with a typewriter. i am so glad portable computers were invented even tho i cuss them all the time.
“Views of explanation in culture theory: white, kroeber and malinowski” (30 pages for david bidney)
“social structure in levistraussia: alliance for solidarity (+) against history (-)” (20 pages for judith hansen)
“social exchange in social change: a logical analysis” (17 pages for chien chiao)
“some theoretical problems in studying child-rearing as enculturation” (21 pages for melody forgot last name)
“the relationship between freedom and responsibility among the plains indians” (45 pages for david bidney)
“some jural and economic aspects of african bridewealth, marriage, and divorce” (19 pages for james vaughn)

“passion and disillusionment: african education in kenya” (23 pages for richard stryker)
“chinua achebe and the tragic tradition in western literature” (16 pages for forgot name)
some others around somewhere. anyway, boys and girls, thats what we were writing about back in the early 1970s. this works as sleep therapy, too. :asleep: that must be why i kept them.
