Description: This course introduces students to various ways in which cultural anthropologists do research and fieldwork. Cultural anthropologists study the human situation across diverse contexts; their work enables us to probe 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, and to consider questions of cultural diversity and social inequality, including race, class and gender. Through readings, lectures, small discussions, and fieldwork assignments, this course 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: In this course exploring the anthropology of reproduction, we will think not only about how babies are ‘made’ in the traditional sense, though sexual and other modes of reproduction, but also how they and the processes by which infants come into being are also socially and culturally constructed. This course exposes students to a range of anthropological modes of engagement, by examining reproductive practices through multiple lenses: medical anthropology, kinship studies, gender/sexuality studies and feminist critique, visual anthropology, ethnographic film, affect theory, and science studies. We will attend to the ways in which race, class, gender, and sexuality shape reproductive outcomes, exploring the relationship between reproduction, politics, and the economy.

Description: Depending on how we approach it, the law may be thought of as a body of text, as a canon for normative conduct, or as a set of practices. Religion, which may alternatively be conceptualized as creed, as ritual system, or as way (or ways) of life, possesses similar elasticity. In this mid-level interdisciplinary course, we draw on works of ethnography, philosophy, theory and literature to think through the various ways that these two concepts - Law and Religion - inform, interact with and place limits on one another.

Description: This course has two aims. First, it will introduce students to the vast cultural diversity of New Guinea and its neighboring islands and to how this region (Melanesia) has played a central role in the history of anthropological theory and method. Second, it will enable students to analyze and evaluate how anthropologists create and revise ethnographic knowledge by making and interpreting data within more or less explicit conceptual frameworks. The course surveys a few of the anthropological debates generated by fieldwork in one particular area of the world. Readings include 20th century classics by authors such as Bronislaw Malinowski and Margaret Mead as well as recent ethnographic writings about contemporary Papua New Guinea.

Description: Whiteness is often taken to be a human norm. An unraced, default, invisible category. Fundamentally unmarked, and yet a marker of power, status, and privilege. It has been the standard against which all non-white ways of being have been rendered Other. But whiteness is not a given. It is a mutable and flexible category. What does it mean to be white? How does one (or how do many) become white? And how can one (or many) move in and out of whiteness? In this course, we will deconstruct whiteness through theoretical, historical, and ethnographic lenses. We will examine the historical processes by which a number of ethnic groups have become white, and we will interrogate the ways in which whiteness continues to be actively produced and enacted in contemporary discourse and social life.

Among key issues on which the course will focus are variability, continuity and change in the cultures of different groups of Diasporan Africans, and relationships that are found between major environmental challenges as well as historical events such as the Islamic Jihads, Trans-Saharan Trade, the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, colonialism, and Plantation Slavery in West Africa and the relocation and redistribution of African populations in Africa. A critical component of this class examines the historical, ethnographic, and archaeological research done in Africa, Europe, and the Americas to inform the student about theories and interpretations concerning the African Diaspora.

Description: Ethnoarchaeology is the ethnographic study of peoples for archaeological reasons, usually through the study of the material remains of a society. Ethnoarchaeology aids archaeologists in reconstructing ancient lifeways by studying the material and non-material traditions of modern societies. This course will examine ethnoarchaeological work in Africa that is sensitive to the daily realities of peoples’ lives while it simultaneously builds the types of knowledge necessary for ethnoarchaeology to meet its important cognitive role within archaeological research. Examples will be drawn from research with potters and consumers, iron smelters, pastoralists, artists, and ethno-pharmacologists in West Africa, Southern Africa, and Eastern Africa. The course will guide the student to understand what ethnoarchaeology is, and to acquire skills, which would enable her or him to practice it. Lectures will be combined with class discussions of specific case studies.

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.

Description: This course will examine gender as a key component of social, economic, and political life. 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.

Description: This course adopts an anthropological approach towards understanding the dramatic socio-cultural transformations that have followed in the wake of China’s post-Mao economic reforms. 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.
