SHA-4 Issues of Economic and Political Anthropology

SHA-4 Issues of Economic and Political Anthropology

COURSE INFORMATION

Learning outcomes: Overall, the course seeks to familiarize students with the most important problematics -older and recent ones – in the fields of economic and political anthropology. It enables them to obtain the necessary theoretical and methodological framework for the interpretation and analysis of economic and political relations, practices, notions and behaviours within different social, political and economic contexts both in western and non-western societies. More specifically, this is achieved through a critical analysis of examples (case studies) pertaining to the morality of exchange, -gift and commodity exchange-, money, consumption, analytical approaches of the “political” phenomenon, theories of ethnicity and nationalism, the cultural, political and economic dimensions of ethnicity and ethnic relations, especially from the perspective of identity formation.
