ANT 394M • Indigenous Cultural Politics
9:00 AM-12:00 PM
This course considers the growing significance worldwide of indigenous cultural politics. What has given rise to this development? What are its consequences? How has it been institutionalized? What are its limitations? Readings consider such topics as indigenous identities, political movements, land claims, and cultural forms. Each student will be responsible for developing and presenting an original research project on some particular aspect of indigenous cultural politics.
