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 does it mean to live in a city? Can you reshape people’s lives by redesigning city spaces? How do city dwellers, architects, politicians, and others interact with and appropriate their own urban past? This interdisciplinary course will introduce students to different ways of looking at cities, framing them as the contested products of a range of human actions. Through an in-depth examination of four complex urban environments – Chicago, Istanbul, Delhi, and Rome – we will learn about the interplay between space, aesthetics, time, memory, and power. Weekly lectures by an anthropologist, an architect, and a historian will complement discussions of film, historical documents, fiction, and relevant case studies. In addition to writing four short papers, students will hone their analytical skills by observing urban life and form with a series of field studies in the city of Rochester.

Description: In Black Skins, White Masks, Frantz Fanon wrote, “O my body, make of me always a man who questions!” In the United States, popular cultural understandings of race have often located blackness within the body: in DNA, in blood, in skin, in hair texture, in facial features. How does race get mapped onto the body? In this interdisciplinary course on race and embodiment, students will encounter texts and writing assignments prompting them to think critically about how black bodies ‘matter’ in the contemporary U.S. Course materials and assignments will encourage students to explore how blackness intersects with other social categories such as gender and sexuality at the site of the body, while exploring how these categories are socially constructed and can and should be troubled, blurred, and contested in the practice of social life. The dual themes of intersectionality and visuality will act as a frame for our explorations.

Description: This course explores the relationship between humans and the environment through ethnographic case studies of North American industrial landscapes. We will ask, how have humans changed the natural worlds around them? How do these transformed environments impact people’s lives and their communities? We will trace the history of contemporary American environmentalism focusing on the Great Lakes region. We will analyze how anthropologists have responded to environmentalist concerns, such as petrochemical production and the management of radioactive waste. What can anthropology reveal about the complex entanglements of citizens, corporations, and politicians that coalesce around issues of toxic contamination? What can anthropology reveal about the distribution of toxic effects across categories of race, gender, and class? To draw comparisons across regional contexts and introduce students to central debates in the field, we also will review accounts of environmental contamination in Ukraine, India, & New Mexico.

We will discuss ethnographic accounts of housewives, working mothers, servants, and family life alongside theoretical approaches to gender, space, power, and consumption. We will compare ideologies of privacy and spatial practices cross-culturally. We will analyze a range of primary sources - bathroom fixtures, kitchen appliances, home decor, women's magazines, television shows, and etiquette handbooks from different time periods and places - for what they can tell us about gender, class, and power. In addition to weekly discussions, students will propose, develop, and present a semester-long research project.

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.

Description: Kinship as a social phenomenon is a foundational concept in anthropology. In this course, we will examine ethnographic treatments of kinship in the U.S. since David Schneider’s seminal cultural analysis of American kinship, including his controversial critique of kinship as a universal social system worthy of study. Through the work of Schneider and those who followed him, we will address the following questions: 1) How have anthropological concepts of kinship evolved over the past 50 years? Is kinship rooted in biology or culture? 2) Does ‘American kinship’ constitute a coherent cultural system? 3) What is an ethnography of kinship? 4) How are the insights of anthropological studies of kinship applicable to the contemporary arenas of politics, social life, and reproduction outside the classroom?

Description: In Black Skins, White Masks, Frantz Fanon wrote, “O my body, make of me always a man who questions!” In the United States, popular cultural understandings of race have often located blackness within the body: in DNA, in blood, in skin, in hair texture, in facial features. How does race get mapped onto the body? In this interdisciplinary course on race and embodiment, students will encounter texts and writing assignments prompting them to think critically about how black bodies ‘matter’ in the contemporary U.S. Course materials and assignments will encourage students to explore how blackness intersects with other social categories such as gender and sexuality at the site of the body, while exploring how these categories are socially constructed and can and should be troubled, blurred, and contested in the practice of social life. The dual themes of intersectionality and visuality will act as a frame for our explorations.

How are economic processes, political discussions, and intimate practices constrained by cultural ideas about gender and sex? How does gender intersect with race, class, and ethnicity? How is gender related to sexuality, bodies, and selves? 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.

What happens when a society officially committed to economic and gender equality witnesses the rise of stark social divisions? Beginning with an historical overview of the key features of the Maoist and post-Mao periods, we will move on to examine such issues as the creation of a market economy, the rise of new social classes, rural to urban migration, changing ideologies of gender and sexuality, new attitudes towards education and work, transformations in family life, religious revival and conversion, and the influences of global popular culture and mass consumption, with an eye towards identifying both continuities and departures from the Maoist era. Throughout our discussions we will consider the implications of these changes for China’s political, social, and economic futures.

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.

It will also examine the relationships between patients, family, and health care providers as shaped by both traditional and contemporary Western medicine. Focus will be on developing societies but include material from the industrialized societies of the global North. Students will use the concepts and methods of anthropology to examine these processes. Coursework will include exams, quizzes, papers based on independent research, and class participation.

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.
