ANTH 6080 - Consumer Culture, Social Change, and Ethnography

3 Credit Hours
This course examines anthropological approaches to material culture and consumption: the practices, relations, and rituals through which things from food and clothing to shell valuables or money become meaningful and are used in the organization of social life. Readings include classic works of anthropology and social theory as well as recent ethnographies of western capitalist, colonial/postcolonial and postsocialist settings.
