Title: Wealth and Culture
Description: This class examines questions about wealth, political subjectivities, the compatibility of wealth and democracy, and explanations of wealth acquisition through ethnographic and popular accounts drawn from Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe, and the United States. Unifying themes center on what constitutes wealth, why it is accumulated, how competition for it is institutionalized; how it is won, lost, exchanged, and displayed; and what moral and social obligations people believe its possession entails. The format of class includes lectures, group discussions, and films. Readings are drawn from anthropology as well as other disciplines.
