ANTH 541 Current Literature in Cultural Anthropology (1)

This seminar is designed to expand general knowledge of cultural anthropology through exposure to current research and related issues in contemporary cultural anthropology. We accomplish this by examining the best of recent journal literature. We may also occasionally read a chapter from an edited book. We will normally read and discuss one article per week, although we might increase that number in cases where articles have been followed by published debates. Articles should be selected from a list of approved journals that will be supplied in class. Each article must be approved in advance by the course professor. The presenter should follow the standard outline for article discussion that will also be supplied in class.
