Topics in Theory and Practice of Anthropology (Half-Term): Landscapes of War, Resistance and Repair

ANT 522A

Info tab content
What worlds take root in war? War is often thought of as an exceptional event elsewhere. But for the inhabitants of perennial conflict zones, war is a landscape of living. This course explores war as environment and asks: what becomes of our understanding of war when we approach it as a constitutive dimension of modernity, capitalism, and the nation-state? Using landscape as a method for interrogating war as a lifeworld of the Anthropocene, we engage debates on war and militarization alongside scholarship on racial capitalism, while centering the experience of the Global South as a source for a revised theory of war.
