ANTH202-18S2 (C) Semester Two 2018

Politics, Power and Capitalism

15 points, 0.1250 EFTS
16 Jul 2018 - 18 Nov 2018

Description

This course poses fundamental questions about the domain of "the political" in relation to interest, influence, and power. It applies these concerns to the dominant social, political, and economic system of our times - capitalism. Concerned with its historical and geographical spread, its ideological manifestations, its crises, and its oppositional movements, it introduces students to critical ethnographies that explore issues of wealth and inequality, protest and control, and the role of military, technological, and economic power in contemporary societies.
