Combined Honours in Sociology or Social Anthropology and another field - Anthropology in Practice SOSA 2013   Anthropology in Practice
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course builds on the foundations and materials introduced in SOSA 2012. Social anthropologists use ethnography to describe and understand how people conduct their lives in a particular time and place. This course examines the challenges, complexity, strengths, and limitations of ethnographic knowledge and writing in Social Anthropology. Students will learn about a number of different ethnographic settings which may vary from year to year. A selection of ethnographies, films, autobiographical writing, and critical commentaries will be used to reveal how social anthropologists generate ethnographic knowledge about past and present societies, and why research priorities, frameworks, and methods shift.
