SPAN-530 Anthropology and Social Engagement
Spring for 2012-2013
SPAN 530/ANTH 454
How can we make ethnography more relevant to the societies in which we live? This course will survey various attempts at public anthropology, activist anthropology, and collaborative ethnography to inquire into how anthropologists and other ethnographers have studied pressing social issues, participated in social change, had an impact on public policy, and developed new collaborative research relationships with the communities we study. The course will also pay attention to the differences in public anthropology in various countries in the world. Taught entirely in English.
