Description: This course introduces students to various ways in which cultural anthropologists do research and fieldwork. Cultural anthropologists study the human situation in all its manifestations; their work enables us to expose the limitations of self-evident truths and to reveal the possibilities of alternative views. Students will be asked to think both critically and comparatively about institutions such as kinship, politics and religion. The course also addresses questions of cultural diversity and social inequality, including questions of race, class and gender in contemporary America. It will challenge students to consider the fate and value of cultural differences in a world connected and shaped by global flows of people, money, media and technologies.

Description: What is justice? What is equality? What is the relationship between truth, justice, and equality? What can art tell us about justice, and what can justice tell us about art? What steps must we take to become more just and more egalitarian? In this unique course, taught this semester collaboratively by three faculty across art history, modern languages, and anthropology, we will consider how the arts and humanities have commented on issues of truth and justice, with special attention to the relevance of these questions to the contemporary moment. Course meetings will involve plenary sessions with all three sections, as well as discussion-sections with individual faculty, in which we engage with the assigned literature and films. Outside speakers will also address the course. (The course will count towards cluster requirements in the humanities; speak to the undergraduate adviser in specific departments for more information.)

We will explore the social and communicative roles that objects play in human society and investigate how people use objects to communicate, rebel, exert power, or make sense of the world around them. Through reading ethnographic case studies, semiotic theories, and seminal anthropological works, we will investigate how meaning and value are produced in different cultural contexts. We will attend to the role of material culture in capitalist societies by exploring issues such as commodification, branding, aesthetics, and class.

Description: This course introduces students to various ways in which cultural anthropologists do research and fieldwork. Cultural anthropologists study the human situation in all its manifestations; their work enables us to expose the limitations of self-evident truths and to reveal the possibilities of alternative views. Students will be asked to think both critically and comparatively about institutions such as kinship, politics and religion. The course also addresses questions of cultural diversity and social inequality, including questions of race, class and gender in contemporary America. It will challenge students to consider the fate and value of cultural differences in a world connected and shaped by global flows of people, money, media and technologies.

Description: This course examines how anthropologists study one of today's pressing issues: energy use and climate change. We will consider examples from around the world of how people understand, produce, and use natural resources and various forms of energy. We will ask, what are the different ways people give meaning to natural resources and forms of energy? How are people around the world differently affected by energy production and consumption, in the context of corporate capitalism and globalization? What, if anything, is distinctive about the politics of energy in the contemporary moment? How and by whom is knowledge about the benefits and risks of energy produced? Overall, the course will use energy and climate change to show the distinctive ways anthropologists study the world, and consider how ethnographic research can contribute to our understanding of pressing contemporary social problems and their solutions.

Description: This course investigates the relationship between language and culture at the interface of linguistics and anthropology. It examines the ways in which language • reflects the perception of the world, ways of life and beliefs of its speakers • creates rituals and maintains social ties • is used by people of different ages, genders, social classes, and ethnicities We will discuss hypotheses that try to explain the nature of relationship between language and culture and then turn to a wide variety of topics which are relevant for both linguists and anthropologists. These include, for instance, kinship systems and language, language of perception (e.g. colors, spatial relations), culture and language change/language variation, writing systems, and intercultural communication.

We will use anthropological approaches to explore the variety of ways violence, memory, justice, and reconciliation are understood around the world, focusing particularly in Africa. We will explore critically the ideology behind “transitional justice” mechanisms such as truth commissions, criminal trials, and memorials, and their diverse impacts in specific contexts. We will ask, How do we understand violence and the challenges of social recovery? What is the relationship between rule of law, political stability, and peace? How do legal solutions balance local realities and culture with universal standards of law and human rights? How do legal solutions define peace and justice, truth and punishment, and manage tensions between them?

While many of our discussions will be focused on the U.S., we will also examine several ethnographic examples from outside the contemporary western world that challenge the universality of our conceptions of gender and sexuality.

Through these case studies, we will explore the ways in which personal relations, cultural values, and power struggles are essential to scientific production rather than peripheral to it. Throughout the course, we will ask questions such as what counts as "knowledge" and "rationality"? How has the meaning of "objectivity" changed through time? How do experts lay claim to authority and credibility?

Description: Cultural critic Stuart Hall has observed “Heritage is a discursive practice. It is one of the ways in which the nation slowly constructs for itself a sort of collective social memory.” In this upper level seminar, we will look at case studies of how people (through the collectivities of gender, ethnicity, race, or nation) construct visual narratives about the past. Among the topics for consideration are Holocaust memorials, Native American and Polynesian museums and cultural centers, African American quilt histories, and even individual artists’ projects of the last few decades (Judy Chicago, Fred Wilson, Silvia Gruner, José Bedia, and Jolene Rickard, among others). Readings will be drawn principally from the disciplines of history, anthropology, cultural studies, and art criticism.

Description: This course introduces students to various ways in which cultural anthropologists do research and fieldwork. Cultural anthropologists study the human situation in all its manifestations; their work enables us to expose the limitations of self-evident truths and to reveal the possibilities of alternative views. Students will be asked to think both critically and comparatively about institutions such as kinship, politics and religion. The course also addresses questions of cultural diversity and social inequality, including questions of race, class and gender in contemporary America. It will challenge students to consider the fate and value of cultural differences in a world connected and shaped by global flows of people, money, media and technologies.

Description: This course will examine the effects of urban change on individual lives. Through case studies of deindustrialization, urban renewal, migration, and rapid urban growth, we will trace the economics changes that have reshaped cities over the past forty years, including recent attempts to create "World Cities". We will explore the ways in which politicians, corporations, and residents transform city spaces and the implications of these projects for residents' rights and their access to urban services. Reading about cities in China, Brazil, India, Egypt, South Africa, and North America will enable us to compare across cultural contexts and traditions.

We will cover the six core areas of linguistic investigation: Phonetics (articulation, acoustics, and perception of speech sounds), Phonology (sound patterns), Morphology (internal structure of words and their organization in the mental lexicon), Syntax (internal structure of phrases and sentences), Semantics (word and sentence meaning), and Pragmatics (language use in context). The course focuses on developing skills in the areas of linguistic data analysis and interpretation of linguistic data in ways that aim to address theoretical and empirical issues in the study of language.
