Taught By: Hugh Raffles
Section: A

CRN: 2176

Credits: 3

This seminar provides an introduction to contemporary anthropology as a broad field of inquiry and academic discipline. Students will get glimpses of both the discipline's past and its potential futures. We will focus on ethnography as a practice of thinking, representation, and expression, reading books that offer a sense of anthropology's breadth and possibility. Depending on class size and student preferences, the course may also involve a practical component. This is a core course requirement for Anthropology MA students - interested students in other departments should contact the instructor for permission to register.
