Description: Students will read a selection of contemporary ethnographies deemed "exemplary" by diverse audiences paired with theoretical works that the authors claim in their arguments. The course will focus on how ethnographies are structured, the central issues they investigate, and how they go about doing this. The central task of the class is to analyze, critically but also productively, what rigor and creativity mean in the ethnographic investigation of contemporary and recurring questions and problems, relations between questions, theory and ethnography will also be explored through students' own ethnographic writing. Cross-list: ANTH 620. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for ANTH 420 if student has credit for ANTH 620.
