ANTHRO 352

Special Topic: Applied Anthropology


Description

Applied Anthropology refers to the many ways in which anthropological theories, methods, and findings are used in interventions that affect people’s lives. This paper will explore Anthropology’s long history of contributing to knowledge, policy and public discourse, and how anthropology might be put to use in the future. The course will examine how anthropological methods are used to construct ethnographic knowledge and academic insight. It will also consider ethical, methodological and theoretical complexities of Anthropology’s engagement in development and advocacy. Finally, it will consider how anthropologists fit into the bigger picture of transnational governmentality, policy and economy.
