ANTH 223 - WORLD CULTURES
This course will introduce students to groups of people living in many different areas of the world. We will focus on indigenous peoples and cultural change, a vibrant area of anthropological research and an issue that affects peoples in countries throughout the world. Our main case study examines the predicament of indigenous peoples as they deal with the state and with more powerful peoples in three different regions of the world. Some of the central questions we will address are: Who are indigenous peoples? What are the forms of social organization and cultural practices of particular groups of indigenous peoples? How have indigenous peoples sought to maintain sovereignty and their unique identities in the face of continued discrimination and marginalization? What international efforts have been made to develop policies and programs that improve the situation of indigenous peoples? We will also critically examine representations of indigenous peoples in the popular media.
