Primary Instructor:

In this course we will focus on both Europe as it has been understood by ethnologists over the past five or six decades; and on what Tariq Modood et al. among others refer to as "the New Europe", a Europe forged by "several decades of immigration and utilization of so-called guest-workers mainly from outside Europe," the development of a European Union, and the various demobilizations following the Cold War. Through ethnographic texts, "artifacts" of popular culture, and films, we will consider such issues as the usefulness of culture as the concept most associated with the field, kinship, local rites and practices, identities, histories, memories, and globalization processes. Grades will be based on class attendance and participation, regular quizzes on the readings, a group term paper, and two take-home exams.
