Seminar in Culture Contact and Colonialism

Anthropology 456

Usual Description

This course focuses on anthropological approaches to culture contact and colonialism. We will trace the development of theoretical models relating to gender and ethnicity, acculturation, frontiers and boundaries, and World-Systems theory. Through case studies and student-facilitated discussion we will explore how anthropologists attempt to construct explanatory frameworks for culture contact that have wide applicability, while acknowledging the uniqueness of individual cultures and the historical paths they have traveled.
