H500 | 7083 | Girshick

Graduate Students only

This course is designed to introduce first year graduate majors to the
development of theory in cultural and social anthropology. Attention
will be paid to the national traditions of anthropology
in England, America, and France, focusing on the major personalities
and theoretical orientations of the field since the 19th century.  The
course is seen as an introduction and companion to E500, which will
focus on contemporary issues in sociocultural anthropology.

Course requirements: Students are responsible for preparing abstracts
of the readings (the number of abstracts per person will depend on the
size of the class) which will be used as the basis
for class discussion.  In addition, there will be two extensive
research papers, one due at mid-term time and the second at the end of
the semester.
