ANTR-2103 Escuelas Antropologicas I

The purpose of this course is to familiarize students with the most important anthropological tendencies that developed from the end of the 19th Century to the mid 50s in the 20th Century. We are particularly interested in the process by means of which "anthropological thought" developed during these years and how the different tendencies of the discipline were conceptualized. The course will be focused on the historical context in which said tendencies took place as well as the ideas that they put forward. We will emphasize the different schools, particular English social anthropology and North American cultural anthropology, as well as the creation of an anthropological method and ethnographic writing as one of the discipline´s key elements.
