ANTH 12.03 The Ethnography of Violence

Violence is widely recognized as a problem in modern society, with policies and interventions to combat violence, or to employ it, dominating local and global politics. Yet the meaning of violence is seldom analyzed. This course explores violence as both an embodied experience and a socially and culturally mediated problem. Particular attention is paid to understanding how violence relates to manifestations of power, configurations of legitimacy, structures of inequality, and perceptions of difference. Using personal, collective, and institutional perspectives, this course raises key questions concerning security, resistance, suffering, and criminality in a globalized world.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
