Course description

Anthropologists are experts in human diversity and anthropological insights into the infinite range of human experiences matter for understanding the world today. This course provides an introduction to anthropological approaches, focussing on questions of how humans make society and culture, and why this matters. Students are not only introduced to the diverse components of anthropology, they also get to do what anthropologists do: practicing our hallmark methods of fieldwork and participant observation, and learning how to analyse and write about the fieldwork data. Religion and kinship are explored by practising anthropology through interviews 'at home'.
