A lecture program and directed reading seminar on anthropological theory. Students are required to undertake intensive reading and discussion of key concepts in anthropological thinking and the nature of anthropological knowledge. We explore the ideas of scholars who have been influential in the history of anthropological theory, by focusing on the theoretical perspectives informing a number of classic ethnographic studies. We consider how these different perspectives provide complementary, or competing interpretations of social and cultural processes among particular peoples. An important aim of the subject is to guide students towards recognising and developing their own theoretical frameworks for their thesis projects.
