This course examines some of the early theoretical traditions from which modern anthropology emerged and on which contemporary anthropological theory continues to reflect. We will focus on the emergence of American cultural and British social anthropology (with Enlightenment, evolutionary, Marxist & French/German social theories explored). This year the visual aspects of the discipline and the parallel development of cinema and anthropology will be emphasized.
