ANTH 052 PZ -Indigenous Societies: Histories of Encounters


Institution: Pitzer

Description: The course gives an overview of the current lives of indigenous societies in different parts of the world (North America, South America, Africa, and Asia). We will examine major topics that mark their encounters with nation-states: political power, economic development, gender relations, collective rights, healthy, formal education, and religion. The course compares a variety of ethnographic cases (through movies and texts) to expose the difference and similarities between 'indigenous peoples."
