The instructions for your Discussion Board post indicate that you must include 3

The instructions for your Discussion Board post indicate that you must include 3 references (or cites) to the assigned reading material, and 3 references to the audiovisual material (which includes the weekly lectures, and, for weeks that you are assigned YouTube videos, you can use references to those as part of your three-cite requirement.)
*The powerpoint slides are considered audiovisual*
1. The Tarnoff newspaper article about coding, the Paul Farmer essay about Haiti, and the Sidney Mintz book on sugar (described in the lecture on how Marxism is used in Anthropology) do not say that they are taking a historical materialist perspective or ever mention Marx’s or Wallerstein’s names.  Select 2 of the 3 case studies just mentioned. What evidence can you find in their writing that indicate that Marx’s or Wallerstein’s theories have been influential to their analyses? For example, you can discuss their approach to the topics they discuss and/or certain key vocabulary words (like exploitation, conflict theory, modes of production, capitalism, or World Systems Theory) that you heard in the videos or lectures that described these theories. 
2. Compare and contrast the ways that the two cases studies that you selected in #1 draw on Marx and/or Wallerstein. Do they use the theories to come to very similar conclusions, or very different ones? Use specific statements the authors make as examples to support your analysis.
