GR6038: Place, Space, Nature | P. West

Undergraduate and Graduate Seminar
M 2:10-4PM

This class examines the social production of space, place, and nature. Three discursive and material fields that must be understood if we are to practice a conceptually rigorous and politically engaged contemporary anthropology. In the course, we will examine how these fields have recently been studied, described, conceptualized, and theorized. We will explore these ideas through the reading of works by anthropologists, historians, and geographers, looking at how the changing nature of places affects both the discipline of anthropology and the ways in which anthropologists conduct research in places.
