I’m working on a sociology question and need support to help me learn.
This paper is based on the book ”The Mushroom at the End of the World: on the possibility of life in capitalist ruins” by Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing
- practice writing concise, interestin, and well-supported arguments within a limited page count.
- practice deeply analyzing (a limited number of) ethnographic examples in order to ground theory in the concrete details of people’s lives.
- develop a deeper understanding of the conceptual frameworks/ problems of the book as they relate to ethnography in the 21st century.
- how do the political implications of Tsing’s argument speak to problems and frameworks raised by other scholars? for example, how is life in ruins different from abolition?
