ANTH 1490 - CROSS-CULTURAL POLITICS


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
This course is a comparative examination of political behaviours in small-scale and large-scale societies through the anthropological holistic lens which sees things political as embedded in, and intertwined with, the likes of kinship, resources, economy, belief systems (religion), etc. The course approaches power as a problematic, and emphasizes agentive strategies at the individual and group levels. One of the continual and major issues in the course will be to address the dynamics between small-scale and local experience, with large-scale (read state and global) forces in some selected instances.
