This course is an intensive, upper-division introduction to Cultural Anthropology and Cultural Studies. Concentrators and non-concentrators are welcome; the course is closed to first year students. This course is about ideas anthropologists have developed to understand human difference and human relationships, from the end of the nineteenth century to the present day. We explore a rich variety of texts in philosophy, psychology, and cultural anthropology from different historical periods and regions, including Papua New Guinea, Bali, and the U.S. Students will develop a basic understanding of theoretical movements in cultural anthropology, a set of tools for analyzing and understanding cultural phenomena, and a stronger appreciation of cultural difference in all its forms.
