Welcome to CA 94.
This class provides an general introduction to cultural anthropology. Throughout this course we will examine the history, methods, primary debates, and analysis that have come to define the discipline. Beginning with an examination of cultural anthropology’s emergence in the 19th Century, we will consider the ways that anthropological inquiry has approached topics of race, gender, sexuality, politics, migration, and globalization today. Lectures will focus primarily on assigned readings. However, we will also investigate primary materials in class to better illustrate central topics. By the end of the course, we will have considered how cultural anthropology has changed over the last century. In addition, students will have the opportunity to critically examine central themes of the course in relation to life in Durham, NC.
CA 94 meets Monday-Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in the Link Seminar Room 1.
