Title: Anthropology of Justice Syllabus
Description: This is a syllabus for upper-level undergraduate students in cultural anthropology. Here is a synopsis of the course description: How do people define, imagine, and attempt to realize justice in their society? How do conceptualizations of justice vary cross-culturally? This course presents an outline of the foundations, historical development, and contemporary trends in cultural anthropological approaches to studying justice. Key questions anthropologists continue to explore include: how are legal systems shaped by culture? How are cultures shaped by legal systems? Following cultural relativism, are all justice processes equal? Can global or international justice exist? How can we use anthropology to investigate contemporary justice movements, including environmental justice, prison abolition, #BlackLivesMatter, and truth and reconciliation commissions?
