Minor in Sociology and Social Anthropology of Economy, Work and Development - Rethinking Culture and Class SOSA 3014   Rethinking Culture and Class
Critical cultural studies has become a vigorous focus of interdisciplinary scholarship drawing on the fields of history, anthropology, sociology, geography, and literary criticism. Researchers in all of these areas are reconsidering the significance of symbolic aspects of social life and how the collective experiencing of cultural forms is related to changes in capitalism and modernity. For example, what is the significance of popular music in different class, gender, and ethnic contexts? How do commitments to kin and community relate to expressions of culture and class consciousness? Are boundaries between work and leisure mutable in terms of class, gender and ethnic processes? Approved with International Development Studies.
