A preview of the concept of "kinship" as used by anthropologists. Important terms and concepts covered include genealogy; ego; avuncular; cross-cousin; parallel-cousin. Correction: at 10:33, I accidentally said that in the Trobriand Islands the best marriage partner is the parallel-cousin--I should have said "cross-cousin". For more kinship info, see: http://anthro.palomar.edu/kinship/def... http://www.ausanthrop.net/research/ki... About me: I'm Nick Herriman, author of The Entangled State and Witch-hunt and Conspiracy. In the "25 Concepts in Anthropology" series, I preview what I think are the 25 most important concepts in socio-cultural anthropology. Each concept provides a unique insight into what it is to be human. I am also the 'Audible Anthropologist' on iTunesU.
