Ethnicity, Nationality, Identity
ANTH 336
Fall 2006
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: ANTH 536

This seminar is geared toward exploring concepts of ethnic boundaries, the nation-state, and group identities as they change within cultural contexts and historical circumstances. In this course, students will examine theories of race, ethnicity, indegeneity and national identity within varied locations with multi-ethnic societies. The ethnographic and interdisciplinary readings address traditions and technologies of rank, gender, class and race as they relate to ideological constructions of citizenship and belonging across national borders. Attending to (neo)colonialism and postcolonialism, we will explore globalizism, migration, and transnationalism as culture, people, identities, and boundaries move.
