Topic for Fall 2014: Globalization and Culture
This course will examine the relationship between globalization and culture, focusing on such aspects of culture as economic systems, gender and sexuality, migration, language, commodity flows, and media. We will adopt a critical perspective toward globalization, acknowledging that it that it is deeply tied to colonialism and that it has both good and bad effects. We will particularly focus on the effects of globalization on marginalized populations.



Topic for Spring 2015: Disability and Culture
This advanced seminar will draw from experiential and critical approaches in medical anthropology to cross-culturally explore the subjectivities of perceived physical and mental disabilities in both local and global worlds. Potential topics, depending on student interest, may include: deafness, autism, chronic pain, infertility, dementia, schizophrenia, and depression.
