History of Anthropology

ANTH 400 with John Barker.

This course examines the origins and development of anthropology in Canada and other countries from the late nineteenth century to the present. In particular, we will learn about the foundational questions and historical conditions that motivated and shaped early anthropology and have to a considerable extent continued to inform methods and theory to the present day. An emphasis will be placed on reading extracts from influential works in socio-cultural and archaeological anthropology.
