  • This course challenges students to find shadows of Fordist assembly lines in unexpected places. Using anthropological concepts such as gender, class, labor, consumption, and kinship, we will analyze how organizations of Fordist assembly lines have historically shaped dynamics of power and social inequality across societies in various parts of the world. Examples include industrial pig farms across the U.S., living room factories in Taiwan, danwei work units characteristic of Maoist China, Joseph Stalin’s project of building a “country of steel” in the former Soviet Union, and experiments in fully-automated “smart” factories across Asia, Europe, North America today.
