ANT 4240 - Politics of Ethnicity (3)

When Offered: Fall. Alternate years
The history and experiences of indigenous groups have long captured the interest and commitment of anthropologists. Recently, studies have focused on indigenous movements and declarations made in reaction to both state-making processes and neoliberal restructuring reforms of the twentieth-century and beyond. Anthropologists have framed their interpretations and understandings of these movements with attention paid to various topics including power, representation, domination and resistance, hegemony, state-making processes, citizenship, organizing, and performance. This seminar will introduce students to numerous case studies with which they will gain an understanding of the cultural and historical foundations from which are built indigenous movements and their particular strategies.
Students who have previously received credit for ANT 4241  may not enroll in or receive credit for ANT 4240.
