Description

Who are we to one another? What is the relation between ethics and politics? Between value and power? How do people handle moral conflict, confusion, and change? The "ethical turn" in anthropology starts with the proposition that ethical intuitions are an essential quality of ordinary social existence. But anthropologists differ in their ideas about what counts as "ethics" and what follows from those ideas. In this course, we will read recent ethnographies that grapple with these questions, alongside a limited number of theoretical texts. This course has no prerequisites and is open to interested students from any department.
