ANTHROPOLOGY

ANTH-631
Foundations of Social and Cultural Anthropology (3)

Course Level: Graduate

This seminar reviews a selection of major works at the foundation of contemporary socio-cultural anthropology. The focus is on classic works that illustrate the theoretical perspectives, analyses, and trends in the field. The central concern is how anthropologists and other social scientists have defined the field, the kinds of questions they have asked, and the methods they have used, in the broadest sense, to answer those questions. Usually offered every fall.
