Social Inequalities Forum: "An introduction to Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA)" (by Dr. Judith Glaesser, Tübingen)

Mar 29, 2022 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

online

Judith Glaesser

An introduction to Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA): from the example of relative educational poverty to first archaeological applications
Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) was developed by the political scientist and sociologist Charles Ragin – the method has not been applied in archaeology yet. QCA cannot easily be allocated either to the quantitative or the qualitative research tradition, it combines elements from both. Cases are at the core of the analysis. Cases can be anything: an individual, a region, a site… QCA treats cases holistically, as combinations of attributes. Based on formal logic, set theory and Boolean algebra, QCA analyses combinations of conditions which are sufficient and/or necessary for the outcome under study. Thus, it is able to take account of the context in which factors have their effects.
In her presentation, Judith Glaesser will give an overview of QCA, and, drawing on relative educational poverty as an example, she will demonstrate its application. In an open discussion we will try to transfer the approach from the sociological case study of contemporary social inequalities into the sphere of archaeology and related subjects.

CV Judith Glaesser
Judith Glaesser is a research fellow at the Methods Center, Tübingen University. She took a degree (Diplom) in psychology at Konstanz University, followed by a PhD in sociology also at Konstanz. She then spent 10 years at the School of Education, Durham University, UK, first as research fellow, then as lecturer and senior lecturer. She came to Tübingen in 2016 initially to work at the Tübingen School of Education, joining the Methods Center in 2018.
Her areas of research are sociology of education and research methods, in particular the set-theoretic method Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA), and she also has an interest in research design more generally.

Social Inequalities Forum: "Indus economics: insights into egalitarian urbanism in South Asia’s first cities" by Adam Green (Cambridge University)

May 20, 2021 from 02:00 PM to 03:30 PM

Virtual

Adam S. Green (Cambridge University) will give a talk on "Indus economics: insights into egalitarian urbanism in South Asia´s first cities" in the framework of the Social Inequalities Forum.

Water Buffalo - Green Paper Forum

Water Buffalo Seal from Banawali, Accession Number BNL13185 in the Banawali Section of the Central Antiquity Collection, Archaeological Survey of India. Special thanks to the Archaeological Survey of India.

Abstract: There was a remarkable lack of inequality in the Indus Civilisation, home to South Asia’s first cities and one of the world’s earliest Bronze Age societies. And yet, Indus settlements were expansive, numerous and planned, with a specialised and intensified agro-pastoral political economy that provided substantial benefits to a wide cross-section of people. The first excavators of the Indus civilisation were struck by its relative egalitarianism, but later generations of archaeologists tried to “normalise” the Indus by inventing questionable indirect proxies for inequality. After all, traditional theories of urbanisation suggest that the stratified distribution of wealth and power were prerequisites for specialised large-scale political economies. In this talk, I will review evidence for inequality in the Indus context, and through the analyses of data from both urban and rural settlements, explore how its absence may have impacted many different domains of Indus life. I argue that these patterns can help us test and refine a range of political economic theories about information, inequality, and governance.

Social Inequalities Forum: "What can the modern languages of India tell us about its past? The contribution of linguistics to interpreting ancient Indian history" by J. Peterson (Kiel Uni)

May 11, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Virtual

John Peterson (Kiel University) will give a talk on "What can the modern languages of India tell us about its past? The contribution of linguistics to interpreting ancient Indian history" in the framework of the Social Inequalities Forum.

John Peterson
Abstract: In my talk I will show some of the ways in which linguists can contribute to uncovering various aspects of ancient Indian history. While the traditional comparative method of historical linguistics is well known outside of linguistics, more recent methods generally are not. I will therefore concentrate on these newer developments.

Recent studies have shown that modern Indo-Aryan languages, regardless of their internal genealogical relationships, are clearly split into an eastern and a western group with respect to structural properties, although there are no natural boundaries (e.g., rivers, deserts, mountains, etc.) which could account for this. While the eastern languages share many similarities with neighboring Munda (Austro-Asiatic) and northern/eastern Dravidian languages, the western languages tend to cluster with neighboring southern/western Dravidian languages. This suggests a considerable amount of language contact in earlier times between these different language families and eastern and western Indo-Aryan, respectively.

A closer look at these two groups reveals that eastern Indo-Aryan languages have undergone massive morphological simplification in the past 2,000 – 2,500 years. This suggests that large numbers of speakers of these earlier languages were adult learners using older Indo-Aryan as a lingua franca in inter-ethnic communication, while retaining their home languages for intra-group communication. By contrast, we do not find such drastic simplifications in western Indo-Aryan languages and some languages, such as Konkani on the west coast, may even show signs of increased complexity. This last situation is typical of long-term, stable bilingualism from childhood onward. Taken together, these facts suggest that ca. 2,000 – 2,500 years ago there was a considerably higher level of ethnic and linguistic diversity in eastern India than in the west, similar to what is found today in these parts of the subcontinent.

Title: Big mounds for big chiefs? On the multifaceted social frameworks of burial mounds and burial mound building from a Eurasian perspective

Speaker: Sabine Reinhold, Eurasia-Department, German Archaeological Institute, Berlin

Kurgan_

Abstract:

Burial mounds are a ubiquitous feature in any Eurasian landscape. Beyond the densely settled Europe, barrows still dominate vistas and constitute cultural landscapes. Some of the mounds are huge in their dimensions, some of them nearly invisible; some form long lines, some clusters, and others stand as solitary monuments. These mounds are emblematic for Bronze and Iron Age societies, even their roots date back to Neolithic or Eneolithic times. Many of the narratives associated with Bronze and Iron Age such as increase in social disparities and the vectors of social inequality, are closely intertwined with the few great and many small burial mounds of this epochs. Huge monuments with impressive burial inventories presenting males with warrior equipment’s and females with splendid costumes – the graves inside the mounds offered perfect arguments to reconstruct elites, their social and even political role. They are based concepts of domination and sovereignty that we associate with early or medieval societies. But is the analogy correct? Are monumental mounds of the 4th millennium BC in the Caucasus built over the graves of early ‘kings’, ‘big chiefs’ or ‘big men’, as they are in later historical epochs? Is a big mound in itself an emblem of ‘kingship’ and neighbouring smaller construction that of associated elites?

In his poem ‘Questions of a Reading Workman’, Bertold Brecht pointedly posed the question on the relationship of historically spotlighted and forgotten protagonists, the ‘kings’ and the ‘others’ that are found in many of the narratives on elites and monuments, – “Who built the seven towers of Thebes? The names of kings are mentioned in the books. Did those kings drag those boulders? …“. I would like to follow in my talk this leitmotif. Who participated for what reasons in the creation of burial mounds in Western Eurasia? What does the actual archaeological sources tell us about the persons in the graves, those who interacted with the deceased and the bereaved, those who took part in the funerals, and those who finally built the monuments for their(?) remembrance? How much of social inequality can we really reconstruct from the difference in size and expenditure of the resulting constructions? The talk will focus on the onset of this phenomenon in the 5th and 4th millennium BC with a focus on early mounds in the Caucasus and the Black Sea region. This is one of the two early hotspots in the emergence of the idea to erect a mound at the spot of a burial.
