Need to read :
a.Disciplined Hearts by Theresa O’Nell (Introduction, Chapters 1 and 2) https://books.google.com/books/about/Disciplined_Hearts.html?id=6aQwDwAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=kp_read_button#v=onepage&q&f=false
b. Desjarlais chapter 1 and chapter 2 (see attached file)
1. Draw a specific link between the Desjarlais reading and the O’Nell reading (compare and/or contrast them on at least one point) with evidence, including citations, from each text. Read through your colleagues responses and comment substantively on at least one of them. A substantive comment is one that goes further than “I liked your post”. A substantive comment extends the response in some meaningful way drawing on course material.
2. Focusing on the introduction to Disciplined Hearts, what difference does O’Nell argue she finds between what she calls the psychiatric version of depression and the anthropological version of depression? What aspects of the Flathead experience of depressive affect leads her to this understanding?
3. Choose ONE of either 3a or 3b
a. O’Nell argues that among the members of the Flathead Reservation, depressive affect, feelings of sadness and pity, are treated as having a positive moral and cultural value. Summarize this argument with at least one piece of evidence from the ethnography. In your opinion, how does this differ from Euro-American notions of depression (also discussed in O’Nell and Desjarlais), both as a feeling and as a mental illness? Give your response and respond substantively to the opinions of at least two other students in your discussion group.
b. Kondo, O’Nell, Rebhun, and Wikan all describe cultural contexts in which the self is conceptualized as relational or interdependent. Give examples of interdependent selves drawn from at least 3 of these authors. In your opinion, how does this notion of selfhood differ from the American ideal (as described in Kondo)? Give your response and respond substantively to the opinions of at least two other students in your discussion group.
