Courses: Race, Class and Public Anthropology in the US (ANTHH330B01)

Spring 2013

This course examines poverty, work, whiteness, race, and migration in the wake of three decades of neoliberal economic policies in the US, and how anthropologists do work in the public interest on these topics. Students will learn themes in the literature, theoretical scaffolding, and research methods of applied, public, and activist anthropology in relation to US-based ethnography. The course includes field research in Fishtown (Philadelphia).
