ANTH 301 - Seminar in Anthropological Theory

This seminar provides a selective survey of the past one hundred years of anthropological theory, with a particular focus on the contributions of American, British and French theorists in the development of anthropological paradigms that are now most important in the discipline. These include evolutionary, functionalist, historical particularistic, culture and personality, structuralist, symbolic/interpretive, ecological materialist, Marxist world systems, feminist, poststructuralist, practice and postmodernist theory, which will all receive major attention. Readings may include primary theoretical texts, classic and contemporary ethnographies and biographical materials on a number of influential anthropologists.
