Introduction to Cultural Anthropology|
This course introduces students to concepts, theories, and methods of cultural anthropology. Lectures, readings, and audiovisual materials invite critical analysis of broader themes in contemporary anthropology, such as the nature of culture, the problematic notions of social evolution and progress, and the negotiation of power within and among diverse peoples.
Students will learn to engage critically and comparatively with different cultural imaginations of life as well as to reflect on their own.
