Ellen Block. "The AIDS House: Orphan Care and the Changing Household in Lesotho." Anthropological Quarterly 89.1 (2016): 151-180. Project MUSE. Web. <https://0-muse.jhu.edu.helin.uri.edu/>.
Location: Rural highlands of Lesotho
Block spent 24 months in the rural highlands of Lesotho between 2007-2015 studying aids houses. He states that the house is a key crossroads for human movement through fostering, marriage, and migration. As such, it is also the site where physical connections, emotional bonds, and feelings of love and affection are nurtured. Block then concluded at the end of her work that after her extensive research over the course of 24 month that she was able to answer a lot of her original questions, but her study has left her with many questions still to be answered. Such as what drives the success of an Aids House. However, even though she has many questions she concluded that these houses have adapted to demographic pressures by giving space for those who are in need, and are part of a larger network of changes precipitated by the rapid onset and proliferation of AIDS.

Patterson, Thomas C. "An Archaeology of the History of Nineteenth-Century U.S. Anthropology: James McCune Smith, Radical Abolitionist and Anthropologist." Journal of Anthropological Research 69.4 (2013): 459-85. Print.

Armelagos, George J. "THE OMNIVORE'S DILEMMA The Evolution of the Brian and the Determinants of Food Choice." Journal of Anthropological Research 66.2 (2010): 161-187. Print. Armelagos completed the study in 2009 all throughout the United States. Armelagos states that he believes that there is more to an abundance of food that is contributing to the eating disorder. Armelagos concluded, the cultural development of cuisine that mediated the biological problem of what to eat inadvertently provided the background for the perfect storm. This included a need of high-density foods and industrial foods which creates a non-nutritious diet. This is accompanied with a lot of advertising of non-nutritious food.

Webster completed this study over many years 2000-2009 in Illinois. In doing this study Webster stated, he was very interested in “the ways linguistic forms come to be icons of identity, icons that are deeply felt and are evaluated negatively by outsiders.” He concluded, “When such intimate grammars are saturated with emotional attachments, they are iconic of identity and expression.” He explained that it becomes iconic in an emotional and aesthetic sense.
Stephen Law, “The Evil-God Challenge,” in Religious Studies (2010): 353-373. Accessed May 2, 2017.http://www.jstor.org/stable/40927250 Law writes about the theodicy, explaining the plausible Evil-God hypothesis. However, Law continues by giving reason to which God may be considered at times “evil”. His main argument is that God created humans with free will. Allowing humans to choose the life they want to live. This life is far more desirable and beneficial to humans than a life without choice. Although, free will comes at the price of a world with the possibility for evil, but Law explains that God did this for a reason and free will is an important part of the world and it’s society.
