Abstract

This is a concluding course in the social anthropology minor. Its goal is to situate anthropological research in a broader landscape of social theory from Marx to Agamben and Schmitt, explore uses of anthropological knowledge that were engendered by this social theory and the history of anthropology, and revise the readings for this minor. This course links the history of anthropological theory with the history of applied anthropology, action anthropology and engaged anthropology. Lectures and seminars are structured by main schools of thought in social theory, which are illustrated by chapters from ethnographies, by applied anthropology examples and by readings from the other courses of this minor that we have already studied.
