Historical Perspectives on Anthropological Theory SA 874 (5)
Examines anthropology in its historical context. An examination of the political, cultural, and intellectual factors that shaped disciplinary discourse of a particular period, and continue to affect present practice. Emphasis may be on particular theorists, and/or particular schools of thought, and/or persistent guiding themes. The goal is to think about anthropology anthropologically, thus complementing the more contemporary focus of SA 870. Prerequisite: SA 870, or equivalent, or permission of instructor.
