Material Matters

ANTH 1910I S01 [CRN: 26228]

In the past decade there has been a growing interest in the study of material culture as an explicitly interdisciplinary endeavor involving anthropologists, archaeologists, art historians, literary critics, and philosophers among others. These studies exhibit a range of perspectives from how people make things, to how things make people, how objects mediate social relationships, and how inanimate objects can be argued as having a form of agency. This seminar is a capstone course for senior anthropology concentrators. It is designed to encourage reflection on material culture and its influence in shaping our lives and those of other peoples and cultures.
