Paper 1: The Azande
Write an essay on Azande witchcraft and magic. What role do witchcraft and magic play in Azande society? What are the main characteristics of Azande witchcraft? In what ways do the Azande try to protect themselves from witchcraft? In your answer, consider differences between witchcraft, magic/sorcery, and religion. The bulk of your essay should focus on the Azande, but in broad strokes, what are some of the main differences between Azande and European witchcraft? What are some of the methodological challenges in comparing them? Hutton proposes a global model of witchcraft, as well a series of variables to determine the social profile of the witch in various societies. Apply Hutton’s contextual tools in your analysis of Azande and European witchcraft.
Your essay should be based on your reading of Hutton and Stein, and on the documentary Witchcraft among the Azande that we saw in class, as well as Part I of the documentary "Strange Beliefs."
