ANTY 484 - Economic Anthropology

4 Credit(s)
This course begins with the analysis of the economic relationships found among non-market economies including band, village, and peasant societies. Next, students will study historically the incorporation into the world market economy (capitalism) of all people on the planet. The study of existing people today is a study of the combination of two or more economic systems, both continuations of non-capitalist economies together with a larger capitalist system. The course then examines the economic relationships to all other social institutions. The course will explore the debates between the formal economic theory with competing Marxist and the substantivist economics as to the nature of economic history and the impact of globalization on everyday life. Students will exhibit an empirical understanding of content through written critiques and directed examinations. The course routine and makeup will include lectures, class discussions, small group activities, extensive reading, research, and written assignments.
