Overview

Although students majoring in anthropology are exposed to anthropological theory as it relates to the social sciences generally throughout their undergraduate degree, it is considered that a more intensive and anthropologically specific, in-depth grounding in theory is necessary at the Honours level, with a particular focus on recent theoretical directions and developments.

This course aims to provide a more detailed and in-depth survey of the major anthropological theoretical approaches of the later 20th century onward. Building on the major historical themes of theory development in anthropology as outlined in ANT3001, this course will provide an understanding of the more recent development of theory in the discipline including, feminism, neo-Marxism, critical theory, post-structuralism and post-modernism. Students will use the assessment in this course to develop the theoretical basis for their particular Honours topic.
