ANTH 2700 Anthropology of Inequality

This course surveys anthropological contributions to mapping the relationship between human differences, power and inequality. The course emphasizes current intersecting inequalities and how they are lived and challenged in various parts of the world. The course first expands the scope of the study of inequality in time in order to explore how inequalities came to be, how they persist and transform. Spotlighting change and possibilities, the course prepares students to contribute to debates concerning the nature of inequality in the public sphere and advocate for social justice.
