About the Course:

This practicum is designed to deepen understanding of how power works in the world around us through directed readings and anthropological field work emphasizing active participation. Engaged studies, linked to reading topics and inspired by student-interest, are at the core of this course. Readings provide perspectives on topics such as studying hierarchies, education,
activism, civic arousal, violence, propaganda and cultural jamming, journalism, energy and ecology, and the operation of controlling processes on global and long-term scales and in the minutia of daily life. By the end of the semester, it is intended that through the anthropological lens students will have identified, examined, and worked at changing some processes of control of personal interest in their own lives.
