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.

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 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: 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, and 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, language of perception (e.g. colors, spatial relations), politeness across languages and cultures, and writing systems.

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: Why is there no place like home? What makes home such a special place? Why did the human home evolve? Homes evoke powerful emotions about place and also highlight the dynamic and complex nature of people, their relationships to each other, and the broader society they live in. Archaeologists, therefore, must study the material culture found in and around domestic dwellings in order to identify any reoccurring patterns of those materials to reconstruct their household practices and social relations. This course will focus on the ways that material traces from the past shed light on the diversity of domestic life, which includes household organization; economic strategies; diet and status of families; rituals, and identity. To this end, we will read case studies from household archaeology about all types of homes (mobile shelters to sedentary palaces), but also review key anthropological texts about place-making.

Description: What is a person? In this course we will explore anthropological debates about the nature of personhood and changing definitions of what personhood is – from social roles, to ideologies and semiotic displays. We will read classic accounts of personhood alongside ethnographies that highlight the ways in which social values, practices, and institutions have shaped who and what people think they are. We will also examine how both scholarly ideas and everyday practices about personhood have changed in response to major political and economic shifts. At the end of the course we will examine ontological ideas about personhood: when does a person start or stop being one? How are technologies and things used to constitute people? In addition to readings, we will view ethnographic and popular films and analyze a range of contemporary media.

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. We will also look at domains of illegality, such as political corruption, piracy, and mafia organizations, which are nevertheless governed by norms and rules. 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 will examine case studies from China, Russia, Nigeria, the U.S., and elsewhere.

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 class 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 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.

Prerequisites: Juniors and Seniors in Art History, Anthropology and History, as well as graduate students, will have preference in registering for this course. Familiarity with the language and theoretical concerns of cultural studies or anthropology would be helpful.
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.
