Culture Theory

Anthropology 353

Usual Description

A critical examination of theories and debates in the study of culture since the nineteenth century. Topics include: evolutionism, functionalism, symbolic anthropology, structuralism, political economy, feminist and postcolonial critique, and postmodernism. We explore the historical context, legacies, and utility of each approach for theorizing: agency, structure, power, knowledge, culture, subjectivity, and the politics of representation. We consider the consequences of theoretical assumptions for the collection, interpretation, and presentation of ethnographic data.
