Title: Anthropological Thought and Perspectives on Violence
Description: This senior seminar brings together the uses of theory in anthropology, both historically and across the four subfields. By organizing much of the course around a single theme--this year's is violence--we can explore in a unified discussion how understanding human beings is enhanced by the complementary relationships between archaeological, biological, cultural and linguistic anthropologies, as well as exemplary integrative and interdisciplinary research. We begin by concentrating on two major schools that have historically shaped anthropologists’ scholarly and applied work, functionalism and structuralism. We then highlight three currents of thought in particular: materialist, sociobiological, and postmodern. Work on violence that attends closely to gender, to symbolic and ritual violence, to biological bases, and to violence and the state round out our unit.
