ANTHRO 310

Reading Ethnography


Description

Ethnographic texts are the major outcome of research in social and cultural anthropology. This is a seminar-based reading and discussion course focused on student understanding, presentations and discussions. We compare different ethnographies and approaches to ethnographic research and writing.

This course follows your core social anthropology courses and is intended as:

  • A capstone course for completing anthropology majors in the sociocultural stream
  • A bridging course to graduate study in sociocultural anthropology
  • A focused, in-depth engagement with social anthropology's defining form of knowledge production

It is designed to:

  • Provide a transitional style of learning between lectures and the small-group seminars of graduate courses and many professional work environments
  • Deepen your understanding of the nature of ethnographic texts and their relationship to disciplinary research theory
  • Help you to understand the interplay between research, writing and reading
  • Enhance your understanding of the relationships between comprehension and critique
