ANSOC 230 - Political Anthropology


Prerequisites: ANSOC 100  
Fulfills a course requirement in the Anthropology + Sociology Core Concentration
An overview of questions of power and politics through an anthropological perspective, with special attention on inequality and violence in the non -Western world. Anthropologists have long been concerned with how different cultures organize themselves politically; in this course, we build from classical topics towards an investigation of how differences in power and political inequalities manifest themselves in the daily lives of people throughout the world. The course material blends a broad range of theoretical approaches to studying power with the close detail of ethnographic case studies.
