I’m working on a sociology discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Imagine that you are a social scientist who specializes in early civilizations. As a recognized expert in the field, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City has contacted you to offer you a position on a panel, with two other experts, to design a new wing and set of installations for the museum. The theme of this proposed museum section will be “ancient cities of North America” and you have been asked to come up with ideas for the Cahokia portion of this wing. Given what we have learned regarding this prehistoric society, what would your recommendations be for what to include and emphasize in these sections of the museum’s new wing? Clarify at least three major items that you would want to be constructed and put on display at the museum for this region to best represent the housing, food production, economy, rituals, and other key aspects of social life in early human civilizations.
Your writing should begin with an overview of your opinion and summary of data supporting it and rely on evidence from this week’s readings and any other pertinent course materials (e.g. lecture video) from this week, stated in a clear and organized manner.
