UW whitewater Origins of African Domesticated Crops East African Yam Questions

Question Description

I’m working on a history project and need a sample draft to help me learn.

Students will select a crop (East African Yam) that was domesticated in Africa from the list below and create an
informative presentation about how and when the crop was domesticated and the crop’s
importance for the development and changes in the society it originated. The project must
address more than content information and evaluate how and why the crop’s domestication
influenced human society and development. Content will include the following:How the domestication might have fit into the pattern of foraging – tending –
domestication?How does this crop relate to larger questions and concepts related to societal
development?
Sometimes it helps to use the scientific name when looking for the purple yam – Dioscorea alataIn addition to looking for articles just on the crop (East African Yam), look for stuff about the region and people – The ancient Omotic People and Cushites. The below list is from me searching for Omotic. The way to approach this might be to start with the general context for the time period in the region. Also, go ahead and expand the Dioscorea alata search beyond JSTOR to see what you find. Just be careful of what you use. Information about the crop, if taken from a reputable source is still useful just make sure you don’t impose modern issues or questions on the ancient past.Use these sources to answer the two questions. You don’t have to use all of them but make sure you find articles discussing the questions. You can also look for other sources to help.Ehret, Christopher. “On the Antiquity of Agriculture in Ethiopia.” The Journal of African History 20, no. 2 (1979): 161–77. http://www.jstor.org/stable/181512.De’a, Data. “Clans, Kingdoms, and ‘Cultural Diversity’ in Southern Ethiopia: The Case of Omotic Speakers.” Northeast African Studies 7, no. 3 (2000): 163–88. http://www.jstor.org/stable/41931260.Hildebrand, Elisabeth Anne, and Steven Andrew Brandt. “An Archaeological Survey of the Tropical Highlands of Kafa, Southwestern Ethiopia.” Journal of African Archaeology 8, no. 1 (2010): 43–63. http://www.jstor.org/stable/43135502.Schoenbrun, David L. “We Are What We Eat: Ancient Agriculture between the Great Lakes.” The Journal of African History 34, no. 1 (1993): 1–31. http://www.jstor.org/stable/183030.Arthur, John W. “Culinary Crafts and Foods in Southwestern Ethiopia: An Ethnoarchaeological Study of Gamo Groundstones and Pottery.” The African Archaeological Review 31, no. 2 (2014): 131–68. http://www.jstor.org/stable/43916695.
