Issues in the Anthropology of Europe

Please note: this is archived course information from 2012 for ANTHRO 364.


This new course explores key processes that are shaping European culture and society. Drawing on ethnographic texts and films it examines the major trends and processes of transformation at work in Europe today from the demise of rural society and globalisation to the spread of neoliberalism and the advance of the European Union. Among the topics we will study are: the "idea of Europe", honour and shame in the Mediterranean; sex and gender; the rise of the Mafia; immigration and racism; political movements and the far right; regionalism, nationalism and ethnic conflict; the influence of the EU on European identities and economies.
