Intermediate Selected Topics in Anthropology: Anthropology of Civic Engagement
How can anthropological skills be used to more effectively understand communities? Why is it important to integrate understandings of race, class, gender and other social structures into community research as well as into policies that can improve a community’s well-being? How have anthropologists traditionally engaged with communities and how has this changed over time? This class will explore the meanings of civic engagement in anthropology, what this means for communities, and how anthropologists can productively collaborate with communities in beneficial ways.
