ANTH 4570 [0.5 credit] Political Anthropology

Can anthropology help us understand politics? Can ethnographic encounters help us approach political theory and political action differently? This seminar will focus on concepts (power, authority, equality) and practices (resistance, subjection, solidarity) through which anthropologists invite us to rethink the way we live together.
Prerequisite(s): third-year standing or permission of the instructor.
Also offered at the graduate level, with different requirements, as ANTH 5570, for which additional credit is precluded.
Seminar three hours a week.
