Anthropology | Hist Anth Thought in the 19th-20th Century
H500 | 1106 | Greene


Graduate Students only

This course is designed to introduce first year graduate students to
the disciplinary foundations of socio-cultural anthropology from the
late 19th century to the 1970s.  We will concentrate on various
paradigms that dominated anthropological thinking from within the US
and Europe but also with critical attention to "other" traditions
emerging from subaltern thinkers and third world critics of the field
during the same time.  The course focuses both on major personalities,
the intellectual contexts they were writing in, and major theoretical
orientations. The course is seen as a broad introduction to the field
and necessary precursor to Anthropology E500, which emphasizes
contemporary theory since the 1970s.
