ANTH-E 675: LAW AND CULTURE (3 credits)


Introduction to classic anthropological writing on cultural concepts of law, conflict and social ordering, concentrating on ethnographic approaches since the 1960's. Focus is cross-cultural, following the emphasis of the works themselves on Africa, native North America, and the contemporary United States. Discussions emphasize the historical context of individual works and critical re-readings from the vantage pints offered by contemporary anthropological theory.
