This course develops an integrative approach to anthropological theory by means of an intensive examination of local life in China. Among the linked topics are family and kinship, local identity, ritual, cultural constructions of space and time, gender, ideology, and "modes of production of desire." Its primary objective is to illustrate the advantages of a broadly synthetic approach to socio-cultural anthropology by means of a close analytical examination of elements of local social life. In theoretical terms, the course advocates an accommodation among historical, psychoanalytic, and Marxian perspectives.
