Courses: Applied Anthropology (ANTHB338001)

Spring 2013

Class Number: 1512
This course will explore anthropology and social change, specifically how anthropologists challenge forms of oppression and injustice. Through readings, discussions, and practice, we will examine and radically reconsider what anthropology has been, what it is, and what it can be as a tool for engaging the world outside academia. We will read a variety of examples of how public anthropologists have used ethnographic methods to address social inequalities both in the United States and globally. We will discuss both the process and product of such research and myriad ways that insight from ethnographic fieldwork and qualitative analysis lends visibility and public voice to a variety of issues including human rights, health, poverty and inequality, homelessness, humanitarian aid, and war.
