ANTHR 2437

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020. Courses of Study 2020-2021 is scheduled to publish late June.

How do humans organize production, distribution, exchange, and consumption? What social, political, environmental, and religious values underlie different forms of economic organization? And how do they produce racial, ethnic, class, gender, and sexual inequalities? This course uses a range of historical and contemporary case studies to address these questions, in the process introducing a range of analytic approaches (formalist, substantivist, Marxist, feminist, science & technology studies). Course themes include gifts and commodities; the nature of money, markets, and finance; credit and debt relations; labor, property, and value; in/formal, il/legal, and il/licit economies; capitalism and socialism; development and underdevelopment.
