Supervised Reading I (ANTH6910)


This is one of four postgraduate units of study designed to consolidate an understanding of contemporary debates within the discipline of anthropology and give students the skills required to frame a specific research project. Key questions include: (1) do cultural processes create their own space-time? (2) do they create different kinds of places? (3) the implications of processes of reterritorialisation; (4) the implications of these questions for an anthropological methodology based on fieldwork.
