Courses

Anth 306 Visual Anthropology

This course examines the politics and poetics of visual representation in the field of anthropology, focusing primarily, but not exclusively, on the moving image.

Anth 297 Gender and Sexuality

This course examines how anthropologists study gender and sexuality in the four subfields of anthropology. The first half of the course focuses on archaeology and the anthropology of the body. The second half is devoted to work in linguistic and cultural anthroplogy where we use ethnographies to analyze gender and sexuality as performance, subversion and resistance.

Anth 641 Theory and Method in Cultural Anthropology

This seminar introduced graduate students in anthropology to some foundational theoretical concepts and approaches in socio-cultural theory. We examine the writings of key 19th and 20th century social theorists (Marx, Weber, Gramsci, Fanon, Foucault and Bourdieu).
