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: Introduction to the study of media from an anthropological perspective. We will examine constructions of media as objects of social scientific analysis, as both textual artifacts and social practice. Questions that guide the course are, What is "the media"? How have recent transformations in global capital and communications technology altered how we consume, analyze and produce media? What can the study of media tell us about social life and the imagination? We will seek to understand the medias role in producing national and transnational public spheres, focusing on a range of media formations, from multinational corporate structures to indigenous and diasporic productions, to question media's power to shape subjectivities and conceptions of cultural difference. We will examine print journalism, television, film, radio, advertising, and visual art in both local and global contexts. Students will be encouraged to incorporate media analysis and media production in their own ethnographic project.

We will consider the far-ranging impacts of American military intervention in East and Southeast Asia on migration flows and the civil rights of American citizens of Asian descent. We will also consider the experiences of migrants and refugees displaced by war and violence in Latin America and Africa and the transnational communities and nationalist projects that have emerged among exiled groups. Throughout the course we will ask how American geopolitical relations and imperial projects intersect with politics of race, class and gender in the U.S. Readings and films will cover the experiences of war orphans, refugees, military sex workers, and war brides. The course concludes with an examination of the current "war on terror" and its impact on Asian American and Arab American communities in the U.S.

Description: Adherence to the “rule of law”, along with democracy and development, has come to be seen as crucial to ensuring countries’ political and economic stability and prosperity. This course uses anthropological approaches to examine the power of “the law” in the contemporary world. Specifically, we will explore practices that cross the boundary between legal and illegal, and challenge the assumed alignment between law/order and illegal/disorder. This draws our attention to how legality is constructed and allows us to raise questions about power, control, and justice at local, national, and global levels. We examine case studies with specific emphasis on Africa, looking at (il)legal practices within national borders as well as transnationally.

Description: The modern for-profit, investor-owned business corporation is one of the most consequential inventions of the last 150 years. This seminar takes stock of the surprisingly sparse anthropological work on the corporation and considers the prospects for an anthropology of corporations that does not devolve into a broad discussion of global capitalism or a narrow account of organizational behavior. The seminar thus focuses on the specific historical, legal, and structural features of the corporation. Topics for discussion include: the corporate form; corporate personhood; corporate branding and response to criticism; the ideology of shareholder value; shareholder activism and corporate social responsibility. Students will propose, develop and present a semester-long research project that focuses on one particular corporation. NOTE: Open to declared anthropology majors & minors who have taken ANT 101 and one 200-level core course; graduate students welcome by permission of instructor.

Description: Introduction to the study of media from an anthropological perspective. We will examine constructions of media as objects of social scientific analysis, as both textual artifacts and social practice. Questions that guide the course are, What is "the media"? How have recent transformations in global capital and communications technology altered how we consume, analyze and produce media? What can the study of media tell us about social life and the imagination? We will seek to understand the medias role in producing national and transnational public spheres, focusing on a range of media formations, from multinational corporate structures to indigenous and diasporic productions, to question media's power to shape subjectivities and conceptions of cultural difference. We will examine print journalism, television, film, radio, advertising, and visual art in both local and global contexts. Students will be encouraged to incorporate media analysis and media production in their own ethnographic project.

Description: The modern for-profit, investor-owned business corporation is one of the most consequential inventions of the last 150 years. This seminar takes stock of the surprisingly sparse anthropological work on the corporation and considers the prospects for an anthropology of corporations that does not devolve into a broad discussion of global capitalism or a narrow account of organizational behavior. The seminar thus focuses on the specific historical, legal, and structural features of the corporation. Topics for discussion include: the corporate form; corporate personhood; corporate branding and response to criticism; the ideology of shareholder value; shareholder activism and corporate social responsibility. Students will propose, develop and present a semester-long research project that focuses on one particular corporation. NOTE: Open to declared anthropology majors & minors who have taken ANT 101 and one 200-level core course; graduate students welcome by permission of instructor.

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.

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?

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.
