ANTH 57 Origins of Inequality

What led human societies to accept social inequality? This question is as old as the earliest political writings and a central theoretical issue in anthropology. With the collection of detailed archaeological data from multiple world regions, anthropologists have developed case studies for working out the emergence of social inequality. This course will explore the theoretical expectations of multiple approaches to inequality, and then focus on current archaeological evidence from multiple world regions.

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.
