ANT433H5F Advanced Seminar in Anthropology (SSc)

Language, Culture and Personhood

This course will be offered in the Fall 2019 term.

This course offers an advanced introduction to contemporary linguistic anthropology by means of a survey of recent dissertations and first books based on dissertations. In discussions and readings, we will consider their theoretical foundations, analytic goals and methodological orientations thereby tracking alternative approaches to foundational questions and, at the same time, sketching out some key intellectual genealogies of the field.

Pre-requisites: ANT204H5 or ANT206H5 and 0.5 credit at the 300-level in sociocultural or linguistic anthropology
