Title: Production and Reproduction: Economic Anthropology
Description: Economic anthropology challenges the assumptions of conventional economics by analyzing economic behavior from a cross-cultural perspective. This course will look at the relationship between economy and society through a critical examination of neo-classical, substantivist, and neo-marxist approaches in anthropology. The relative merits of these explanatory paradigms will be assessed as we engage ethnographic case material and service learning in the local community. We address such "economic facts" as production, exchange, property, marriage transactions, state formation, and social change in the modern world-system, always taking a comparative perspective. Despite the myriad ethnographic details with which you will necessarily become familiar, this has been a theory course, a history of social thought course. It is intended for anthropology, economics, environmental studies or women and gender studies majors in their final college semesters, i.e., juniors and seniors.
