ANTR-3101 Anthropological Schools II

The course presents some of the developments in anthropological thinking that were produced between mid-century and the decade of the eighties. We will study the texts of authors who represent the currents of thinking and schools that flowered in French anthropology, British Society, and North American culture. The chosen selection will be representative in its importance and impact, but does not and cannot pretend to be exhaustive. To the degree that the anthropological production of a period influences and is influenced by discourses and discussions outside of anthropology, we will look at some of those developments. The course will also approach the analysis and the critical principles of some of anthropological histories (P. Mercier, M. Harris, A. Kuper, J. Llobera, A. De Wall Malefijt, and others)
