This subject will enhance students’ knowledge of and critical engagement with the discipline of Anthropology, through analysing the genealogies of theory and ethnography that frame key debates in contemporary anthropology. Focal debates and concepts will be selected, each year, in consultation with students. With its focus on genealogies within debates, the subject will introduce students to the different trajectories of British, American and European anthropology, and the emergence of World anthropologies. Through exploring the role that different ethnographic foci have played in shaping those trajectories, students will develop understanding of the ways that anthropological argument is deeply embedded in, and builds on, empirical evidence. This will enhance their abilities to conduct and interpret their own research.
On successful completion of this subject, students should have:
