Racial Politics of Culture: Race and Indigeneity in Anthropology
This course is not yet available for enrollment.
Taking its title from Lee D. Baker's Anthropology and the Racial Politics of Culture, this course aims to understand anthropological approaches to race and indigeneity. We'll focus on ethnographic work from a range of ethnographic contexts in order to consider the complexities of race and indigeneity as both analytical concepts and ethnographic facts. We will consider how race and indigeneity are situated in the anthropological project. We will look at such issues as race and science, colonialism, race and culture, structural racism, ethnicity, and whiteness.
