ANTHRO 244

Politics of Culture


Description

This course is an introduction to political anthropology and a consideration of anthropology’s contribution to understanding issues such as power, conflict, the state and cultural politics. It offers a lens for looking at both the world of politics, and the politics of our worlds.

We explore diverse examples of cultural politics in society, potentially including representation, appropriation, nationalism and indigenous issues. Looking at the politics of culture provides a critical window for understanding many of the political tensions and debates today.
