Courses: Social and Cultural Theory (ANTHH350B01)
This class is an intensive reading workshop on contemporary ethnography with an emphasis on questions of the anthropological representation of marginalized groups and on the predicaments of contemporary life in the context of globalization and social change. Among other things, we will discuss how the craft of anthropology draws on its disciplinary resources to address these predicaments and to communicate its insights. The intention of the course is to deepen students' understanding of the history, theory, and uses of anthropology through its application in ethnography, and to develop students' capacity to read deeply and learn from ethnographic work that treats subjects and lives unfamiliar to them.
Prerequisites: Students must meet with the Dept. Chair to confirm enrollment.Two courses in Anthropology, one of which must be Anthro 303 Offered occasionally.
