Anthropology | Social & Cultural Anthropology
E200 | 10864 | Sterling
This course is an intermediate survey of the development,
methodological approaches, key theoretical concerns, and classic and
contemporary issues that have shaped sociocultural anthropology as a
discipline. The course will be focused on the theme of globalization.
Accordingly, it will consider a number of case studies elucidating,
for instance, the ways in which postcolonialism, migration, tourism,
and the capital-driven, mass-mediated circulation of popular cultural
forms (musical, visual, material, subcultural) have influenced the
expression of sociocultural identity around the globe. Several
ethnographic films will be included in the course.
