ANTH 7050 - Ethnography & Global Problems

(3) This course looks at contemporary ethnographies to help make sense of the social problems. By looking closely at the dynamics between the powerful and powerless, ethnographic readings and analysis will focus on themes of inequality, value, security, identity and belonging, well being, and the promise and demise of capitalism. We will consider critical and challenging questions about the tensions between individuals, collectives, states, and empire. What does it mean to be situated in a particular part of the global world? We will engage the possibility for an emergent anthropology in action.
