These three interlinked modules introduce some of anthropology’s most important ideas, exploring several of the analytical approaches characteristic of ethnographic inquiry today. Students learn to describe and interpret contemporary social phenomena through concepts that are unique to the anthropological tradition.
Part 1: In this first of the three modules, we will focus on culture as central concept in anthropology. Tracing the place of culture and its critique and development within anthropology will enable us to engage with a number of other key categories of anthropological knowledge and knowing. This module’s ambition is to provide a short and intensive introduction to the discipline.
