Primary Instructor:

This course is an intensive, upper-division introduction to Cultural Anthropology and Cultural Studies. Majors and non-majors are welcome. This course is about ideas anthropologists and others have developed to understand human difference, human relationships, and freedom 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 US. Students will develop an understanding of theoretical ideas in cultural anthropology, a set of tools for analyzing and understanding cultural phenomena, and a stronger appreciation of cultural difference in all its forms.
