ANTH 3011 Anthropology Seminar: Public Engagement in Anthropology

This seminar is designed to enable students to gain an appreciation of the way in which anthropologists engage with debates and issues of concern in the wider public sphere, civil society, public policy, and local and global communities. The seminar will address scholarship that cuts across the discipline’s different fields through critical reading of current work. Students will explore essential anthropological questions and reflect on the role anthropologists can or should play in shaping the societies in which we live. Seminar topics will vary. This course is writing intensive.
