Current Issues in Sociocultural Anthropology

Biweekly presentations by participants and guest lecturers of current literature and ongoing research in topics pertaining to social, cultural, and linguistic anthropology. Prerequisite: first-year sociocultural graduate students in good standing or permission of sociocultural faculty. Credit/no-credit only.

Class description

This 2 credit seminar is required of sociocultural graduate students in the first year of the program, and enrollment is limited to these students. Each week a different member of the sociocultural anthropology faculty will meet with first-year students and present an overview of her or his research and teaching interests. This colloquium is designed to give students a sense of the range of current topics and approaches within the field of sociocultural anthropology as a whole, and to introduce students to individual UW faculty with whom they may wish to take courses, and/or with whom they may eventually wish to work as dissertation advisor or supervisory committee members. Grading will be C/NC, based on participation (no readings or writing assignments will be required).
