Proseminar in Anthropology

ANT 502

Info tab content
This is the second half of a yearlong seminar required for first-year graduate students in sociocultural anthropology. The course focuses on anthropology's engagement with critical theory, ethnography, and writing. While reading key texts in the discipline, we reflect on how scholars transition from fieldwork to theorizing, and from the ethnographic open to text and public engagement. Throughout, we attend to intellectual cross-pollinations and the ways ethnographic subjects become alternative figures of thought, redirecting modes of expression and restoring movement to ethical and political debates then and now.
