Title: Ethics in Anthropology
Description: This seminar will survey the historical development of professional ethics in anthropology with special attention to its relationship with American hot and cold wars throughout the 20th century and into the present and the various involvements of the American Anthropological Association. General background will be provided through scrutiny of the Nuremberg Code, Declaration of Helsinki, Belmont Report, institutional review boards, and the like as well as through discussing a combination of general textbooks and selected anthologies of case studies. The course will begin with a film and discussion about the case of anthropologist Alfred L. Kroeber at the University of California in Berkeley and Ishi, the last surviving member of the indigenous Yahi culture, to illustrate ethical dilemmas in the colonial context of American anthropology many of which persist to this day.
