Syllabus:

This course provides an introduction to fundamental areas of inquiry in social anthropology. It examines essential aspects of human social life from a cross-cultural perspective, which is one of the defining characteristics of anthropology. This course aims to show how anthropologists came to analyse human social life in the way they did, how this has changed over time, and how we can make use of this knowledge to inform the critical analysis of contemporary societies, including present-day Australia. We explore the history of the discipline of anthropology, discuss important anthropological texts and examine how anthropologists have sought to understand key features of social life. The course explores how anthropology provides powerful perspectives on such things as exchange (gift-giving), language, thought, nature, friendship and gender as distinctly social phenomena. Examples used in the course cover a broad range of cultural contexts; from Museum anthropology to authenticity in the Australian Hip Hop scene.
