ANTH 212 - Ethnographic Understanding

0.5 unit(s)
In this intensive, students recently returned from study abroad engage in closely mentored, collaborative work, reviewing and framing their experiences abroad through related ethnographic studies. The ethnographic studies may be regionally or topically focused, and students may use the intensive to develop thinking for a thesis and to gain increased familiarity with the area in which they studied, for example. Engaging with each other, students in this intensive also consider what their cross-cultural experiences suggest regarding policy, global citizenship, ethical and epistemological issues surrounding how we know what we know. This intensive is open to all majors. Students intending to use their study abroad experience as the basis for a senior thesis or for senior independent work are especially encouraged to participate. Anthropology majors must take this intensive in order to count their study abroad experience as one of the two required regional familiarity courses. Candice Lowe Swift.

Prerequisite(s): Students have to have studied abroad, or done some other form of study abroad, e.g., a summer study abroad program.

Not offered in 2021/22.
