ANTH 333 - Economic Anthropology
The seminar explores capitalism and alternative forms of economic organization, challenging students to reconceptualize “economy” as a cultural system. Students compare nonmonetized economic relations in different societies and interactions between economic cores and peripheries. This reconceptualization informs a critical understanding of the implications for participation in the global economic system and its impact on the rest of the world.
