ANTH 1485 - THE LOCAL AND THE GLOBAL IN ANTHROPOLOGY


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
The contemporary 'global' world, so labeled due to an interlocked (thus, "independent") economy, bears with it an array of "dilemmas", confusions, and blurs of boundaries. Accelerated movements of peoples, cultures/ideas, labor/ work, diseases, etc., serve to transform human experience everywhere, and to bring into question notions of autonomy and identity in the world at large. Using anthropological insight and engagement, the course addresses the dynamic interaction between local cultures and globalization forces.
