Supervised Reading II - ANTH6911

What is culture? One of the most influential concepts of the twentieth century has also been a central idea in anthropology. This unit will trace some major twists and turns in definition of the concept of over the past century. We will then consider how contemporary shifts in the idea of culture can inform a critical anthropological understanding of global and planetary processes in the 21st century.
