ANT440H1: Society in Transition


Modernity, globalization, and neoliberalism have emerged as three  distinct, yet connected, concepts in anthropological studies of social, cultural, political and economic changes around the world. This course critically examines the various meanings of these three concepts, and tests their usefulness as analytical tools to think productively about societies in transition in specific historical and ethnographic contexts. Topical focus varies by year, and may include the changing character of work and welfare, property and markets,country and city, media and mobilization, and others. Check the course outline for details.
