She spent a year in graduate school at Cornell studying sociology before continuing on to Harvard, where she studied anthropology primarily with John and Beatrice Whiting.

For her Ph. While there she noticed that many boys were assigned "girls' work," such as babysitting and household chores, because their mothers who did most of the agriculture did not have enough girls to help out. She decided to study the possible effects of task assignment on the social behavior of boys. Using systematic behavior observations, she compared girls, boys who did a great deal of girls' work, and boys who did little such work.

She found that boys assigned girls' work were intermediate in many social behaviors, compared with the other boys and girls. Later, she did cross-cultural research on variation in marriage, family, descent groups, and war and peace, mainly in collaboration with Melvin Ember, whom she married in All of these cross-cultural studies tested theories on data for worldwide samples of societies.

She has also served as president of the Society of Cross-Cultural Research and was one of the directors of the Summer Institutes in Comparative Anthropological Research, which were funded by the National Science Foundation. His mentor at Yale was George Peter Murdock, an anthropologist who was instrumental in promoting cross-cultural research and building a full-text database on the cultures of the world to facilitate cross-cultural hypothesis testing.

Growing in annual installments and now distributed in electronic format, the HRAF database currently covers more than cultures, past and present, all over the world.

He did fieldwork for his dissertation in American Samoa, where he conducted a comparison of three villages to study the effects of commercialization on political life. In addition, he did research on descent groups and how they changed with the increase of downloading and selling. His cross-cultural studies focused originally on variation in marital residence and descent groups.

He also conducted cross-cultural research on the relationship between economic and political development, the origin and extension of the incest taboo, the causes of polygamy, and how archaeological correlates of social customs can help draw inferences about the past.

Some of her poetry from this period was published in in the volume Wild Angels. Two more Hainish novels, Planet of Exile and City of Illusions were published in and , respectively, and the three books together would come to be known as the Hainish trilogy.

These books received more critical attention than Le Guin's short stories, with reviews being published in several science fiction magazines, but the critical response was still muted. A Wizard of Earthsea , published in , was a fantasy novel written initially for teenagers. Scholar Charlotte Spivack described it as representing a shift in Le Guin's science fiction towards discussing political ideas.

Though the latter two were set in the fictional country of Orsinia, the stories were realistic fiction rather than fantasy or science fiction. All of the stories explored freedom and rebellion within a slave society. A series of her stories from the period — was released in in the collection The Birthday of the World and Other Stories , along with the novella Paradises Lost.

I adored Kipling's Jungle Book. And then when I got older I found Lord Dunsany. He opened up a whole new world — the world of pure fantasy. Worm Ouroboros.

Anthropology by R. R. Marett

Again, pure fantasy. Very, very fattening. And then my brother and I blundered into science fiction when I was 11 or Early Asimov , things like that. But that didn't have too much effect on me. It wasn't until I came back to science fiction and discovered Sturgeon — but particularly Cordwainer Smith. I read the story " Alpha Ralpha Boulevard ", and it just made me go, "Wow! This stuff is so beautiful, and so strange, and I want to do something like that.

Le Guin [83] Le Guin read both classic and speculative fiction widely as a child. She later said that science fiction did not have much impact on her until she read the works of Theodore Sturgeon and Cordwainer Smith , and that she had sneered at science fiction as a child. Le Guin and Dick attended the same high-school, but did not know each other; Le Guin later described her novel The Lathe of Heaven as a homage to him.

Tolkien and Leo Tolstoy to be stylistic influences, and preferred reading Virginia Woolf and Jorge Luis Borges to well-known science-fiction authors such as Robert Heinlein , whose writing she described as being of the "white man conquers the universe" tradition.

In addition to myths and legends, she read such volumes as The Leaves of the Golden Bough by Lady Frazer , a children's book adapted from The Golden Bough , a study of myth and religion by her husband James George Frazer.


The anthropologists of the Hainish Universe try not to meddle with the cultures they encounter, while one of the earliest lessons Ged learns in A Wizard of Earthsea is not to use magic unless it is absolutely necessary. This includes an equilibrium between land and sea, implicit in the name "Earthsea", between people and their natural environment, [98] and a larger cosmic equilibrium, which wizards are tasked with maintaining.

A number of Hainish novels, The Dispossessed prominent among them, explored such a process of reconciliation. Le Guin herself took exception to this treatment of children's literature , describing it as "adult chauvinist piggery".

These stories are ageless because they deal with problems that confront us at any age. It is far too rationalist and simplistic to satisfy the imaginative mind, whether the writer's or the reader's. Variables are the spice of life. Let's say says Mary Shelley that a young doctor creates a human being in his laboratory; let's say says Philip K. Dick that the Allies lost the second world war; let's say this or that is such and so, and see what happens… In a story so conceived, the moral complexity proper to the modern novel need not be sacrificed, nor is there any built-in dead end; thought and intuition can move freely within bounds set only by the terms of the experiment, which may be very large indeed.Websites and online courses.
